Silly Christmas Question

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey all. This is going to be a silly question, and i'm sure I could look it up online somewhere, i'm just not sure where to look. My fiance and I wanted to get my soon to be MIL a nice set of kitchen knives for Christmas. Would that be restricted to send USPS to the UK? I know they ask you if you have any dangerous items etc, but I think they're looking more for firearms that type of thing. I was looking on like argos, marks and such to find sets, but the sets there don't seem to be as nice as what you can get here a lot cheaper. I'd rather pay less here, and spend the money shipping it to get an overall better item. I was even looking on Amazon because I know you can send international on there, but everytime i'd put a nice set in the basket it'd tell me it was restricted (ex. Chicago cutlery, Henckles etc) but when i'd put a ####### set (ginsu) it'd act like I could send it? It made no sense!!

I'm going a bit on the crazy side because I also contacted Bed bath and beyond per their website it says to dial this number for international orders... I did, a guy picks up, I say to him "Hi, I was just wondering if I could get a quote on how much it would cost to ship something to the UK?" he says "ma'am. I have NO clue!" and hung up on me!! No i'm sorry, bye... Just hung up! Some good customer service! I hate how rude people are this time of the year!!

I mailed my chefs knives to England from the US and had no problems. I didn't want to be carrying tons of knives in my suitacse on the plane.

Life is a ticket to the greatest show on earth.

Henckels are made in Germany. You might save yourself some $$ if you tried to order them from there and send them to UK. Just a suggestion. When I went to Germany years ago that is what I brought back with instead of a beer stein or clock. Saved a fortune on some very nice knives.

Calling an illegal alien an "undocumented immigrant" is like calling a drug dealer an "unlicensedregistered pharmacist". (because somebody gives a damn)

I love my cutco knives. I just looked and while they do not ship internationally, you can buy from cutco.uk for them.

I would suggest finding what you want in the US and then seeing if anyone internationally sells the same thing and will ship to UK for you.

Life's just a crazy ride on a run away train

You can't go back for what you've missed

So make it count, hold on tight find a way to make it right

You only get one trip

So make it good, make it last 'cause it all flies by so fast

You only get one trip
