After a few years of active use, the edge eventually becomes so thick that the blade must be sharpened, i.e. thinned down so that you can continue to sharpen your knife. If you do not have machines or knowledge for this, you should send the knife to us for sharpening. At our facility, we sharpen the knife’s edge to a largely original shape and finish. Cost for sharpening is SEK 100,00 per knife, plus return shipping cost. Please note – we sharpen Fallkniven knives only. If you live outside the EU, a fee of about 125 SEK (without VAT) per shipment might be added for the Swedish PostNord’s customs handling, this is unfortunately out of our control.
Proceed as follows: Send the knife placed in its sheath in a well-packaged padded envelope or box. Do not forget to attach your complete name, address, phone number, e-mail address and also some information about what type of service you are requesting.
Send the knife to:
S-961 43 BODEN
We suggest that you send the knife as an insured and trackable shipment. Customers outside the EU: Write KNIFE FOR WARRANTY MATTERS, HS CODE 82 11 92 00, COUNTRY OF ORIGIN SWEDEN on the outside of the package, your post office should have export labels for that. As soon as the knife arrives, we will sharpen the knife and then contact you with payment information, usually by sending a VISA/Mastercard payment link by email. When the payment is made, the knife is returned immediately as an insured and trackable shipment.
Contact us if you have questions.
