Seen it cheaper somewhere else? The chances are, some faceless warehouse with little or no product knowledge may well sell some of the products we sell at a few pounds less than us. However, what we offer is:

•  A personal service from start to finish. You can talk to anyone at BHIP Ltd to discuss your product requirmements

• We know what we sell. We don't just stack it high and sell it cheap. We actually use the products we sell.

• We support the official UK source of every product we sell. When you buy a Leatherman, Gerber, Wenger, Buck, Opinel or Heart Rate Monitor from certain sites, that product may have been sourced from an alternative, non-UK importer. This may have warranty implications, or even worse, it may be a fake product.

• We pay every penny of Corporation Tax that we are obliged to. We do not partake in any Tax avoidance schemes.

• If something goes wrong with your purchase, we will look after the warranty process for you (if you want us to)

• We hold our own stock, if the website accepts your order, the item is in stock and will despatch same working day for orders received before 2pm

• All our prices include Royal Mail delivery (to the UK) and VAT.

There are no surprises when you buy from us. We always use Royal Mail, so if you are not in when the delivery is attempted, it will be held in your LOCAL sorting office (delivery options will be offered to your at checkout, or can be checked here).
