The products presented at ThrowingKnives.shop are not sold directly by ThrowingKnives.shop but our partners such as Toolshop. Hence, you enter into a contract of sale with the partner, whose terms and privacy conditions also apply. These documents can be found on the pages of the partner. If you experience any problems with your order, please contact the partner first.

All content included on this site (such as text, graphics, images) is Copyright © by Christian Thiel, called author in the following.

ThrowingKnives.shop rejects all responsibility for links to internet-pages outside of ThrowingKnives.shop (external links). We do in no way approve of the contents of the external linked pages. We do only state that at the moment when we made the link, the external page did not include contents that were easily discernible as illegal or infringing on anybody's rights. If we get a notice that a external page has inappropriate content, we review the claim and will, if the content indeed is objectionable, remove the link.


If you buy a product from one of our partners, ThrowingKnives.shop will receive no personally identifiable data about the purchase. The partners all adhere to their own privacy guidelines which can be read on their own sites (example: Toolshop privacy policy).

When you contact us, you do not need to give us any information, it is all voluntary (e.g. the name in the email form). Please be sure not to omit data we need to answer your question (like a valid reply address in a message).

We store the IP address and domain of each visitor, your email-address if you send us an email, information on which pages are visited, and information volunteered by you, for example subscriptions to our newsletter.

The collected information will only be used for the purpose for which it was submitted to us, for example to inform you on updates, answer your questions or help tracking your order. We also use it to improve our pages. It will not be shared with anyone outside ThrowingKnives.shop.

Thus, if you have not explicitly agreed (by ticking a box or telling us), you will not receive advertising-email from us. If you want to unsubscribe from a newsletter, simply send us an email and say so.

On selected pages, we use the geolocation provider GeoPlugin to display relevant hints for US visitors, but apart from the IP address no data is sent to this service.
