What we consider a damage product: The structural integrity has been compromised from the original composition of how the product was made. This would include bends or cracks in the material. (I.E. a brass tube that is cracked or a copper sheet/strip that has a significant bend in it)

Note: An aesthetic or visual look is not considered damage. If you would like to know what all of our products are described as, please see the material alloys & specifications page.

In the case of your order arriving damaged, please contact with pictures of the damaged materials / products and the packaging it arrived in. (Boxes, Envelopes, etc) Please include your KSM Order # (e.x. KSM-1001)

Once we receive the pictures, we will review them and notify you about next steps towards replacing the product. Please give us within 1 business day to respond to your initial notice.

We do not charge any restocking fee or shipping fee if you receive a damaged order. 

*In the case of damaged products, please keep in mind that the material that is being manufactured comes unpolished and any water soluble manufacturing lubricant can be washed off using dish soap. Anything of this nature or the nature of a slight bend in material that can be easily bent back to be used as intended, will likely not qualify for a replacement. If there are any minor instances, please still allow us to review it as we do want to make sure you are receiving the highest quality product  that we have lived up to for over 75 years.

We have an amazing team who strives to bring quality and care to every single order they pack and prepare, but sometimes we do make mistakes. We appreciate your grace and we also have a solution if there is ever a situation that this takes place.

If there is a case of missing or wrong products, please contact with pictures provided of the items you did receive. We will review the situation and let you know the next steps to correct your order.
