I was under the impression, that a law was being passed in your country stipulating, that knives should be bought and picked up at retailers in-country banning home delivery
or something along those lines. Maybe that was just a proposal and not a law actually passed yet?
EDIT; found it
'Home deliveries to be banned for online knife sales'
This from June 2018 I dont lnow, if this has been passed in England and Wales yet nor if it pertains to you:
'Home deliveries of knives and acid to be banned in government crackdown'

If you havent run afoul of some recent law, read below:
One is always anxious to lay ones mitts on ones new knife but depending on where you are situated, ten days is not alarmingly long.
I know, you are antsy but alas patience is called for.
A knife takes time to travel overseas - with my Sherlock Holmes-like powers of deduction, I thought you might be in Straya judging from your forum handle.
I notice you are in England though. Thatll still take a while from the US and further more, the knife might be held up in customs etc etc. Depending on the knife, the powers that be could choose to take a closer look before passing judgement. Especially in the current knife climate in England.
Who knows, maybe the authorities decided to confiscate your property and its headed for destruction (IM KIDDING! ... sort of).
Sometimes packages land in distribution centres and hang out there for a while for reasons us non-postal dudes and dudettes dont know. Maybe to make us extra excited to see our new purchase.
Bide your time for a while more.
