If you’ve been to our annual Warehouse Sale, you already know how amazing it is—with savings of up to 75% off. You'll find some of your favorite Shun and Kai kitchen cutlery, as well as Kershaw pocketknives and sporting knives at prices that will bring a smile to your face. In fact, people around here eagerly await it each year. But some of you may have some questions. So we’ve put together a handy Warehouse Sale FAQ.

WHAT IF I’M HANDICAPPED; DO I HAVE TO WAIT IN LINE?
Please come to the back door, on the west side of the building.
DO MEMBERS OF THE MILITARY AND PUBLIC SAFETY GET TO ENTER THROUGH ANOTHER ENTRANCE?
Yes. You will need to have a valid military, veteran, law enforcement, or other first responder ID or be wearing your uniform. Access is limited to the person with the ID or uniform and one guest only. With ID, you and one guest may come to the back door, on the west side of the building.
Please note, the only acceptable identification is:
- You, with your official ID card
- You, wearing your uniform
With either of those, you and one guest may enter in the back door.
CAN I BRING MY CHILD?
As long as your child is under your strict supervision. Please remember that we are a knife company and there will be lots of very sharp knives around at the Warehouse Sale. Please use an abundance of caution and good common sense when bringing young children.
I’VE SEEN LINES AROUND THE BLOCK FOR THIS. ARE THE PRICES REALLY THAT MUCH BETTER?
You’ll save up to 75% off of our Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Prices. So yes, the savings are pretty great.
ARE THESE “FACTORY SECONDS”?
Many of them are. Usually, what makes any of these knives “seconds” are small cosmetic issues—like a tiny scratch or other blemish that only the trained eyes of our quality control inspectors are likely to see. But you will be able to inspect them for yourself and select the ones you want. You will see "XXXX" engraved on the blade of the factory seconds. Factory seconds are not covered by our Limited Lifetime Warranty.
However, in addition to these, there are also many overstock items, as well as one-of-a-kind and few-of-a-kind items. The Warehouse Sale is sort of like a treasure hunt for knife lovers.
WHERE CAN I PARK?
Parking can be a little tough at the busiest times. We will have people directing traffic and helping you find spots. Please remember not to block driveways, fire hydrants, or other cars when parking.
HOW CAN I PAY?
Cash, credit cards (including American Express), and checks are all happily accepted.
CAN I GET MY KNIVES SHARPENED WHILE I’M THERE?
Yes, we will be happy to sharpen any Kershaw, Zero Tolerance, Shun, or Kai knives while you shop—with the exception of serrated knives and scissors. (Sharpening serrations takes longer and won’t be possible in the hustle and bustle of the Sale.) Sharpening services are FREE.
ARE SERVICE DOGS WELCOMED?
With their handlers, yes they are. Just be aware that the Warehouse Sale is usually a very crowded and busy environment and be prepared.
WILL ANY OF THESE PRODUCT BE ON SALE ONLINE?
No. We're sorry but this sale is an in-person event only. But if you're in the neighborhood, we'd love to see you there!
