Right of withdrawal

In accordance with Article L. 121-21 of the French Consumer code, Customers have a maximum of 14 days from the reception of the product to exercise their right of withdrawal without penalties, except those related to the return costs of the Products in question.

Return procedure

To exercise this right, Customers must proceed as follows: either by logging in on LADC’s website, section “Manage my order” – My Account: just tick the Product and the quantities to return, and validate by clicking “Confirm your return request”. The Customers’ return request shall then be studied by LADC, which shall then send an email with the return number to mention on the parcel, as well as the address where the parcel must be returned to; either by contacting the aftersales service – via the contact form or by email or phone – which shall give them the instructions to follow; either by any statement without any ambiguity, expressing their clear attention to withdraw, addressed to LADC, by mentioning their name, full contact details, the reception date of the Product(s), the reference of the order in question and the Product(s) for which the right of withdrawal is exercised (LADC recommends you, as a precaution, to address this statement by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt.

Return of the Product

Customers must return the ordered Product within a maximum period of 14 days following the exercise of their right of withdrawal, to the following address: 

LADC - Les Artisans du Couteau

13 bis pavé du bas chemin


LADC recommends that Customers return their Products via registered letter, or using an additional insurance which guarantees, if necessary, the repayment of the Products up to their real market value, in case of damaged or lost merchandise. 

Customers return their Products at their own risks. We recommend they keep a proof of the return so as to facilitate procedures in case of problems occurring during the transport.

Except for hypotheses of lack of conformity or hidden defects on the Product, the return fees of the goods are to be paid by Customers.

The returned Products must be undamaged, in perfect resale condition, in their original package. They mustn’t have been used nor damaged, even slightly, and must be as clean as possible. Any damaged or incomplete (missing accessory, instructions…) Product, or one whose original package has been damaged, shall not be repaid for nor exchanged.

Repayment period & terms and conditions

The repayment of the amounts paid by Customers (including single delivery costs) shall be made, at the latest, within 14 days from the reception day of the returned Product, and according to the payment method used when the Order was passed. However, LADC can opt for another payment method, after Customers expressly agreed with it beforehand, and without any additional fee. If Customers exercise their right of withdrawal, for a part of the Order only, only the price invoiced for the returned Product shall be repaid. In case of partial withdrawal of the Order, the Customers who would have benefitted, as part of the initial Order, from a free delivery due to the overcharging of a certain amount of order, could be asked to repay for the delivery costs related to their effective order, if the latter was under the delivery minimum cost. Customers shall be repaid for the return costs on the basis of the regular price, and shall in no way be repaid for the Express return cost.

Exception to the right of withdrawal

As an exception, the right of withdrawal cannot be exercised for Products made according to the Customers’ specifications, or those which are clearly customized (article L121-21-8 of the Consumer code). Customization concerns engraving or any other process whose original visible condition, on the Customers’ request, has been modified compared to its initial condition before the Order was placed, described in the product information sheets.
