Age Restricted Purchases

Age restricted purchases (Knives, Crossbows, BB Guns & Slingshots)

We proactively enforce UK legislation preventing supply of knives, crossbows, BB guns and/or slingshots to people under 18. We ensure that all customers purchasing knives, crossbows, BB guns and/or slingshots are of the legal age in the UK (18 years old). 

By placing an order for a knife, crossbow or slingshot on this website you are giving permission for an identity check to be performed to confirm that you are over 18 years of age, prior to dispatch. If you are not on the public version of the electoral register we will need to request ID. In a small number of cases this check will not verify the age of some customers. If this applies to you we will contact you for further information to confirm you are over eighteen years of age. Or you can email a scan or picture of your driver’s license, passport or your UK Proof of Age Card (PASS Card) to We do not keep personal details on record and any ID you send us will be deleted once your age is confirmed. If we are unable to verify your age after 30 days we will cancel your order and refund your payment.

Please note:

Due to new UK knife laws we can only send bladed articles via Parcelforce's services, as we must now use a courier who can confirm the recipient signing for the parcel is above the legal age of 18. These are the cheapest postage options we can offer and we apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.
