Knife returns...

I posted a few days ago about the Mundial knives my father bought me for Christmas. Since they're my first personal knives and I'm not quite sure what I specifically desire in a chef's knife, I figure I would keep a less-expensive set for now so I can make a more informed--perhaps pricier--purchase in the next five years or so.

But! After some research and reading the responses on my last post, I think I would rather trade my set of three paring knives, a boning knife, and the 8" wide chef's knife (all Mundial) for a Victorinox 8" chef's knife and another set of paring knives.

But! I've removed the 8" knife from its package and I have tested it out on some minor jobs--cabbage, garlic, cilantro... I think that's really all. I could easily put the knife back into the packaging it came in.

Can I still return this knife? Is this unethical... or is lightly testing a knife and then returning it a pretty common practice?
