Trade-In and Consignment

knife & gear consignment trade-in program

Do you have knives lying around that you'd like to turn into cash or REC store credit? We offer a pretty cool consignment program, and here's how it works:


Send us an email with a description, picture and the price you want to sell for. We do not accept just anything so please be as descriptive as possible and provide clear photos


Upon acceptance, send us your goods! Please include anything special you would like a buyer to know and include the selling price on a note with the knife or EDC item




You get 70% of the sale price. We will send a check to the address you provide



Store credit! You keep 75% of the sale and we add it to your REC account. You can spend the credit at any time on our website, IT NEVER EXPIRES

More options for the consignment & trade-in program exist. keep reading

Another option is 

trade-in credit

and here is how it works!
Consignment offers better value (70% for you, 30% for us), and you can choose to convert it to store credit at payout for a 75/25 split. However, you'll need to wait until it sells.

If you want instant credit, we have a "Used Knife Trade-In" program, and you'll receive 50% of the item's store value as a used item.

Frequently Asked Questions

how long does it take to sell? 

Ahh, this proverbial question has no answer. We ask that you wait a minimum of three months. We do not list 100% of the consignment cabinet online and in-store visitation fluctuates. This is typically not a program for someone who is in a hurry. 

What happens if I change my mind? 

If your item does not sell within 3 months, you can take it back with only the return shipping cost, and no fees apply. If you remove your item before 3 months, there is a $20 listing fee plus shipping costs to return it to you.

Do I need to clean my knife?

We will wipe off fingerprints but we will not clean your knife for you. Please present your knife or gear with care. Not many folks are searching for a 10-year-old Bugout that has opened 5,000 boxes at work. So yes, please clean off your knife and gear!

My item was lost in transit, now what?

While your item is in our possession, we take full responsibility for it. However, please note that we cannot be held responsible for items lost during transit.
