Importing Japanese knives into the UK


Importing knives into the UK from Japan
...is legal, but delivery is not possible at this time.

It is legal to import a kitchen knife into the UK from Japan, however under the Offensive Weapons Act 2019 c. 17 Part 3 Section 42 it is now an offence to deliver a bladed article to a person under the age of 18.

This creates issues for carriers and the likes of DHL, FedEx and Parcelforce Worldwide (Japan Post EMS) are no longer delivering kitchen knives to addresses anywhere in the UK. It's related to the lack of age identification procedures for delivery. 

Regrettably until further notice Knife Japan is unable to fulfill orders for our customers in the UK. Deliveries to friends or relatives in other jurisdictions is fine.
