COVID-19 UPDATE: Yes, we are open for business! Rest assured your knives and other tools are welcome in our shop, plus we clean and sanitize each item before returning them to you. Local customers can use our contactless drop-off and pick-up process.

Shipping Your Knives

This packing method will help your knives travel safely to our shop:

  1. Wash knives thoroughly before packing.
  2. To prevent knives from piercing through your packaging while in transit, protect the tips in some way – we like to use pieces of wine corks or rubber tubing.
  3. Wrap each knife in several layers of newsprint, then tape securely.
  4. Bundle all your knives together, then tape the entire bundle securely.
  5. Pack your knives in a box, not an envelope!
  6. Cushion the knives with more newsprint or other packing material to keep them from moving in the box.
  7. Ship to us via your favorite carrier.  Our address is:
Precision Knife Sharpening
7 East Glendale Avenue
Alexandria, VA 22301






    Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!
    Whenever possible, PKS will return your knives in your original packaging or re-use other packaging we have on hand. Any packaging that is not reusable will be recycled.
