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.

I am currently making some changes regarding shipping companies. International orders will ship either DHL Express or FedEx. Orders within Germany will continue to ship DHL Paket insured. Unfortunately both companies levy a fuel surcharge that changes monthly and you guessed it, the costs are only increasing. It now costs me over €55 for even the smallest package to the USA. I fear I will be forced to raise the portion of the shipping I now pass on the customers and I may have to raise the minimum order amount as well.

Well, nobody cares about COVID anymore because now there’s WAR! Just when you thought things can’t get any worse… they do. Obviously I can no longer ship to Russia or the Ukraine. Plus the rising shipping costs worldwide with FedEx are dramatic. I’ve been forced to raise the flat rate I charge to €45 for the USA and Canada but each package actually costs me closer to €60. Folks, I don’t know where this is all going to end. But to close on a positive note, I was able to purchase steel so that I have enough for all of 2022 as prices for metals are also shooting upward with no end in sight. I was lucky to get Niolox and N690.

Just a reminder for EU customers: German VAT goes back up to 19% on January 1, 2021. My webshop will go offline on the 31st to make the changes and come back online 1-2 January.

December 15, 2020 will be the last day to accept any orders shipping to the United Kingdom. Any UK buyers, now is the time. I will not resume shipping to the UK until the whole Brexit business has been resolved I have definite shipping and VAT information from the German Government and FedEx.

Not a lot that really qualifies as News… the Covid crisis continues to impact just about every aspect of my business. FedEx is still doing a good job delivering all orders going outside of Germany and DH continues to handle all German orders reliably. I will be making more Leafstorm 9 and Westwind folders before Christmas and posting them for sale when they’re done. Thanks to everyone who has continued to purchase knives and keep me in business during these trying times!
