This is where I will post product updates, announcements & info from the world of Wilkins Knives. Hopefully this will help inform folks who avoid Facebook and Instagram. If you do either of those, please consider following me there.

Hard to know where to start with this one! First, I want to apologize for all the shipping problems that started in May. I have been using DHL Germany for international orders. Unfortunately they don’t have their own planes and hand everything off off the US Postal Service for delivery in the USA. This was no longer working out. As of the 1st of July, FedEx is handling all of my international orders and this is making a world of difference. Delivery times are generally under 5 days even though FedEx is also under pressure from the Covid 19 crisis. I have spent so much time in the last month trying to get shipments traced, located, etc. Hopefully I can now spend more time on new products. I am also ruing a 50% Off Sale on my webshop. Have a look there.

DHL informed me that packages to Canada are now shipping normally EXCEPT! they are all going by ship!! Not by air and that it may take a while. I kid you not. Canadian customers expect it to take 4-6 weeks maybe more…

My finger is almost healed, finally getting back to normal work in the workshop. Resolution: Always listen to the little voice in my head when it says, “No more grinding today! Go Home!” 😉

I managed to grind off some of a finger tip on a 60 grit grinding belt. Ouch. Don’t ever do that! Got a Tetanus booster and the finger is healing fine. Will not be able to do any grinding until early June.

DHL is now picking up at my workshop, saving me facing the hoards at the Post. Depending on the order volume, pick ups are made once or twice a week. Shipping to the USA is still only possible via DHL Premium. I hope German Post will resume Warenpost (Commercial Post) shipments in June and I can once again offer the €15 flat-rate. Until then, €35 is the rate to the USA. Trackable and insured, of course.
