If you are planning to buy knives online, it is important that you know the best place to buy them. The internet is full of various shops and it is your responsibility to find a seller that is reputable and honest.  Let me start this article with all honesty and say that there are dozens of reputable places to buy knives online like BladeHQ, KnivesShipFree, KnifeCenter, Cabela’s, Blade City and dozens more!  That’s not even mentioning the websites of the actual knife manufacturers themselves!  All offer great service, a high level of professional integrity (’cause bad news travels fast and none of them can afford any bad press!).  The question at hand is, out of all of the great online options, WHICH ONE IS THE BEST if it’s even possible to have a “best”?  Well, we have an idea 🙂

The best place to buy knives online is from a shop that has already established itself in the market and created a name associated with smooth and secured transactions, like Amazon.com. You can buy different kinds of knives from this online shop—kitchen knives, garden knives, Swiss knives, all-purpose knives, and so on. Aside from knives, Amazon also sells many other kinds of products—from books and music to electric appliances to furniture. Below is a list of more reasons why Amazon is the best place to buy knives online.

More Options

Amazon offers all kinds of knives from different manufacturers. This gives you more options which allow you to make a wise decision. You can base your decision on the price, brand, style, or type of the knife. It is up to you and your needs which knife you prefer. Some shops only sell a handful of knives on their websites, which leaves you with no choice but to make do with what they have. Amazon can give you what you need because they have more choices when it comes to their products.

Safe and Secure

It is important to buy only from a safe and secure website, especially since you are going to provide personal details and credit card information. There are so many stories of people who have been scammed online. Some people did not get what they paid for while others became victims of identity fraud after entering their information in an unsecured website. You do not have to worry about these things when buying knives from Amazon because Amazon is a safe and secure website.  It’s the best-known brand for shopping online, and I’d trust them before I trust any smaller website or niche site (yes, even like this one) that might sell you a product directly.

Customer and Manufacturer Reviews

Before buying your knives, it would be best to find out more about them by reading reviews written by customers and manufacturers. The customers’ reviews include write-ups of their firsthand experiences about using the knives. This will give you an idea how efficient the knife is. The manufacturer’s reviews, on the other hand, will provide you with the technical details about the knives such as the material, design, color, size, and technology used for making the knives. Both reviews are helpful so be sure to take time to read them when you visit Amazon.

Related Products Displayed

If you have searched for a product on Amazon, you will see a section that showcases other items that are related to what you are currently looking at. This is because you might consider buying similar products from the website. It also features the previous items that you have viewed. This feature is helpful since it allows you to browse related items by simply clicking on the products that are displayed instead of using the search field or browsing through the categories one by one.

Great Deals and Discounts

Aside from having one of the cheapest prices in the market, Amazon also offers great deals and discounts which are usually displayed on the homepage. You can also click on the tab that says “Today’s Deals” to find out more about the deals and savings that they offer their customers. Their deals are further divided into more specific subcategories such as digital deals, warehouse deals, coupons, outlets, and so on.

Free Shipping!

A marketing research study (I forgot which one) found that almost everyone hates to pay for shipping. That is why free shipping is always cool. Especially if it is quick. Amazon has free 2-day shipping for Prime members.  Oh, and as if that wasn’t enough, here’s a big deal;  Amazon usually delivers (even to Canada) within about 2 days of placing my order, and often times, my order will arrive less than 24 hours after I place the order!  That’s INSANITY (in a very good way)!

Biggest Name on the Planet!

It’s one thing to have the business model that gets you to the top of the world’s retailers or product distributors, but quite another to become the best-known name on planet earth!  Whatever you think of Amazon’s virtual monopoly or philosophy of business, etc. the one thing you’ll have to admit is that Amazon is not a “rip-off, fly-by-night, two-bit, shady retail operation”.  In fact, it’s quite the opposite.  In a world where everyone wants to sell you something online, you know you’ll be safe with Amazon’s delivery process and product return policies. 

No need to read the name – you know it! You don’t even need the “A”. The smile arrow will do it!!
