How Do I Return An Item?

We want to make sure you're happy with your purchase, so here's the lowdown on our return policy:


- You can return new and unused items within 30 days of receiving them.


- Please note that original shipping charges won't be refunded. If your order qualified for free shipping, we'll deduct the actual shipping cost from your refund.


- When returning an item, make sure to include all the original accessories, packaging, tags, and everything else in new condition. Items showing signs of wear or use won't be accepted.


- If you placed your order using Afterpay or Sezzle, there will be a 5% fee debducted from your refund to cover the transaction costs associated with these services. Unfortunately, we as a seller, are not able to recover the fees we pay for accepting these payment types. If you choose to get the refund in REC Store Credit, we will NOT deduct these fees from your return and you will get the full amount on your account for your next purchase at REC.


- If a reward coupon was used on the purchase, and the items is returned: Unfortunately, the coupon is lost and the reward points do not go back to your account. Under certain circumstances, we can manually add back your points, this is done on a case by case basis. Please email customerservice@riversedgecutlery.com to inquire if your order is eligible.


- Defective items are a special case. If you receive a damaged or defective item, please reach out to us so we can handle it individually.


- Oh, and one last thing: please don't attach shipping labels directly to the product packaging when you return an item. Product packaging must be boxed before sending. This manitains the integrity of the packaging and helps us process your return more smoothly.


Your satisfaction matters to us, and we're here to help with any questions or concerns you may have.
If you happen to receive a faulty item or if we accidentally send you the wrong product, don't worry! We've got you covered. Just drop us a message by replying to the email you received, and we'll arrange a shipping label for you. We'll look at your specific situation to ensure everything goes smoothly because each case is unique. Your satisfaction is our top priority!
In the case of warranty issues and claims, the resolution process will be coordinated directly between the buyer and the manufacturer. Please note that all expenses associated with shipping items back to the manufacturer will be the buyer's responsibility. However, in most instances, once you get in touch with the manufacturer, they will usually assist by providing a return shipping label for your convenience.
Certain items like batteries, shaving razors, soaps, aftershaves, and other consumables typically can't be returned unless they arrive in a defective condition. We're here to assist if you encounter any issues with these products.
If you're returning a clothing item that might have been tried on, we can't consider it new anymore. In such cases, we'll discount it and offer it for sale in our showroom. As a result, we can only provide a refund in the form of store credit for your future online purchases.
Customers who have a track record of making an unusually high number of returns may be asked to cover a restocking fee of 10-15% for any items they return. We evaluate this on a case-by-case basis to ensure fairness.

If your package is stuck in the "package acceptance pending" status with the USPS, it's pretty normal these days, unfortunately. We see this a lot where the package will not show any scans at all and then just show up at your door randomly. Even though it looks like it's not moving, most likely it still is.


Unfortunately, We can't see any more info than what you see. The good news is, packages rarely actually get lost, just sometimes delayed. Thank You for your patience! 

If you choose to pay for Expedited shipping, PLEASE understand that once the item leaves REC, it is in the hands of the carrier. If your item does not make it to its destination in the quoted time from the carrier, Please be patient. Some Expedited Shipping methods are eligible for a refund, but on a case by case basis. Please reach out to customerservice@riversedgecutlery.com with any issues. 
In the Event of a tracking number stating your item was delivered, but you did not recive the item, the first step in investigating the situation, is for us to obtain a Geo-Scan from the carrier.

Vero Knives

Knives with an uneven grind, poor action, small nick, lockstick or an off-center blade are not considered defective.
