This is not a knife but i imported it...
Its meant for decorative purposes, and i got it from ebay coz caesars is so ex -.-

Will get through customs or not? I did apply for a arms license just to import it, and put the date of arrival approx 1st nov, but it says need 2 weeks to process the application, and my item should be arriving in a few days. Whats gonna happen lol any experienced guys know?
Not exactly sure on swords but for typical prohobited items, it will be held with ica until you produce the license to retrieve it. They will send u a letter notifying the arrival and requiring a license, then another reminder before they return or dispose it.. Just inform them and they will wait for it.. That was mine experience when I got some radio transmitter parts requiring a license..

Well, possibly trying to reduce unneccesary public spotlight.. There was a reporter here last time asking to interview and see some of the collections.. I believed everyone contacted here declined/ignored since it might draw unnecessary attention..

didnt managed to read all the posts..but....what is the legal length of the knives?

also when legal length is it from blade to blade or blade tip to handles?

lastly...anyone bought from focalprice/dealextreme? saw some nice ones..
Few post back, someone posted on the legalities.. Again, why not just contact a&e direct..
Focal price and dx used to be the only easy place to acquire a few nice replica last time but quality is a hit and miss and in recent times, it has dropped. with the appearance of srm, enlan, ganzo and a few other Chinese factories selling their own line after producing for a few US brands, it would be best to go for those instead.. Google for those Chinese knives and you can see a few reviews about them..


In fact, I just hooted 2 Chinese axis lock to play with.. An enlan el02 and srm 6261
Here's some by sojourn..

here are some chinese blades, see the similarity.
Inron MY803 (9Cr13MoV, G10) (XM-18 similarity?)
Enlan EL-08 (9Cr13MoV, G10)
Enlan Bee EL-01 (8Cr13MoV, G10) (XM-18 similarity?)
Sanrenmu 710 (8Cr13MoV) (Sebenza similarity?)
Leen 1203 (440C) (Sebenza similarity?)

the quality of these are not so bad after all. if they dont copy and made some serious design on their own, the chinese folders are at a fraction of the costs of the US cousins, but near quality.

Some of the PRC knives are really good, for eg. those produced by Kevin John's factory - pity with his ability, skill and resources, he chooses to just copy original designs (right down to logos) and infringe the IPR of others. He's too talented for that, IMO. I guess $$ talks.

Separately, I noticed some guys collect lots of production knives - certainly variety is the spice of life, and they are not really expensive. Do you guys have any theme to your collection - for eg. chinese productions? or movie items ? or spydercos? or benchmades? or....and have you considered swapping all those productions for a couple of good custom blades? different strokes for different folks, it's all good

Yeah Kevin John's knives are really amazing in terms of F&F and feel in quality. A pity that he doesn't design his own knives. His latest copy is a Scott Cook Lochsa.. Looks jawdroppingly identical to the real thing, including the price lol.

Mine is titanium framelocks.. lol.. Ordered a few customs and still waiting.. Direware Solo V2 supposed to ETA back in July but it was delayed till further notice.. I guess that's part of the uncertainties of ordering a custom..

who is kevin John? Maybe a person, or maybe a group of people, a brand name, a company... etc.. we never know.
it is same as another 随风。。he is a real knife maker. But some companies use his name all the time.. Y-Start also uses his name in their products but it is not the real 随风
