What These Terms Cover. These are the terms and conditions on which we supply products (“Products”) to the Customer (“you”).

Why You Should Read Them. Please read these terms carefully before you submit your order to us. These terms tell you who we are, how we will provide products to you, how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information.

Our Terms and Conditions. Please read the T&Cs carefully before purchasing any products in-store (“Order”). We recommend you should keep a copy of the T&Cs for future reference. We may modify the T&Cs at any time. We cannot confirm the price of a Product until your Order is accepted in accordance with our Order acceptance policy (described below).

Acceptance of Your Order

How You Place Orders. You may place an Order by purchasing Products at our tills in-store. By placing an Order, you make an offer to us to purchase the Products you have selected for personal use or consumption based on these T&Cs. Information contained in-store constitutes an ‘invitation to treat’. No information in-store constitutes or should be deemed as an offer by us to supply any Products; however, we will make every effort to supply Products to you.

Order Acceptance. We will confirm acceptance of your Order and shall become a binding contract when payment is taken at our tills in-store.

Payment Methods and Processing

Payment Methods. We currently accept PayPal, Visa, MasterCard, Maestro/Switch and AMEX. We process payments after payment is taken. Payments will be debited and cleared from your account upon placing your Order. By making a payment you confirm that the credit/debit card that is being used is yours or that you have been specifically authorised by the owner of the credit/debit card to use it. All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer.

Coupons and Discounts. Any coupon codes, for example free shipping or discount offers, are valid at the time of Order placement only and must be presented at the point of purchase. Coupon offers will not be valid or honoured on Orders successfully placed without using the relevant or correct code.

Pricing and Stock availability

Where to find the price for the Product. The price of the Product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the Products when you placed your Order. We use our best efforts to ensure that the price of the Product advised to you is correct. We always seek to list Products with the most competitive prices.

What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your Order so that, where the Product's correct price at your Order date is less than our stated price at your Order date, we will charge the lower amount.

Promotional Sales

  • The promotions and sales prices that are offered on the Site are available online only. They may not correspond to those in a House store. House stores may operate other promotions and sales concurrently.
  • We reserve the right to extend or withdraw a promotional or sale offer at any time without notice.

Age Restricted Products

If you are underage, you must not attempt to purchase these Products in-store. Under the Criminal Justice Act 1988 (as amended) knives and blades may only be sold to persons over 18. ID will be required to purchase in store or receive delivery of such Products. Acceptable ID includes a photographic driving licence, passport or cards with the PASS logo. We operate a ‘Think 21 policy. Please do not be offended if we think you look under 21 and ask for proof of age when you buy an age restricted Product.
