Delivery Risk and Insurance
In the rare occasion that your parcel has been lost in the postal system Chef’s Armoury will take responsibility and organise a full refund or another item to be delivered.
However, if the article has been signed for at the destination country OR if you have chosen the "Safe Drop" option from Australia Post, Chef's Armoury cannot take responsibility. (The "Safe Drop" option allows Australia Post to drop the parcel without a signature at your delivery address.) In the case your package becomes missing and you have chosen "Safe Drop", Chef's Armoury will not be liable to replace your package. Hence, if you are presented with the Safe Drop option we highly recommend that you do not choose it.
Uniqueness of Product
Many of our products are handmade one by one from natural materials. They will therefore vary in colour, texture, weight, finish and other dimensions.
We have endeavoured to give a good photographic representation of our products, however computer screen resolution and colours do vary so products will not look exactly as they are seen on screen.
If you have given us an incomplete or incorrect address you will be charged a re-delivery charge plus a AU$11 postal return fee. If the package cannot be delivered due to an incorrect name and the package is returned to Chef's Armoury by the shipper, you will be charged a re-delivery charge plus a AU$11 postal return fee.
Special Order Knives
Some knives can only be bought by special purchase order as often they are made to order. The expected delivery date on Special Order knives is dependent on the maker and delivery times cannot be guaranteed.
