just chanced upon this big folder from a post on BF, thought you guys might be interested. Seems reasonably priced and if they actually got the D2 to 60-62RC, that would be nice. Looks to be feature packed, too big for me though...I like smaller folders from 3.0-3.5"bladelength

https://extremaddiction.com/D_Defender.php

Dendra Defender. 5 1/4" closed framelock. 3 3/4" stonewash finish D2 tool steel blade with wavy top edge, dual thumb studs, extended tang and thumb ridge. Hardened to 60-62 HRC. Black G-10 handle with 3D treatment on front and titanium on back. Features the Roto Block lock. Lanyard hole. Stainless pocket clip. Includes blade tension tool. Made by Lion Steel
Made in Italy
Price $149.89 (USD)
That looks like an exposed stop pin?
Can't see the other angles whether its shouldered or press fitted.
But the way its constructed looks like you can't take it apart.

HI Viix..
just to check...are parachute/ diving / boot knives legal for possession? some are double edged like a dagger, or with very thin false edge.....like the following from Hattori.
i am not into diving, just collecting.. do u think its legal to collect these in singapore, or even able to be released from ICA if i order thru post?


The knives I've seen on jumpmasters during my airborne course are single edged serrated fixed blade.. I don't recall any double edged ones.. For dive knifes, I've seen short boot mounted knives but not on recreational divers I've dive with, maybe only on those tech divers and the occasional few (yeah some of my friends too) who kit up like they seal operators on leisure dives. most dont carry except the guides and during those cleanup dive.. even then its the usual blunt tip single edge fixed blade.

Dive knife or not, double edge is basically a no go in Sg.. I know my friend leaves his overseas with the dive op to minimise the custom hassle too.. The ONLY legal double edge I have seen is the commerative commando stiletto which is blunted..

Anyway the hittori looks more for DIVING fisherman than recreational divers. the holes in the handle looks to be designed for attachment to a spear for spear fishing and the double edge for removing shellfish so I'd assume they're classified as hunting weapons. You can try contacting A&E though..

Go to Ikea the kitchen knives section. They sell huge bottles of mineral oil at only $6-$8 each. Enough to last you more than a decade.

I'm glad you mentioned this here. WD40 is not a good storage medium AT ALL.
I'm an active inline skater. I advise my freshies in school to NEVER use WD40 on their bearings. We have had instances whereby the bearings rusts from inside out because of long term usage of WD40. Other fluids worked well. WD40 is only for immediate rust removal, not recommended for lubrication unlike what they claim. I'd strongly advise you against using WD40 again.

But then again, I may be wrong. So take my words with a pinch of salt. Please do correct me if I'm wrong too, I'd be glad to find a reason to use my WD40 again.

yep. Ikea has the cheapest mineral oil I've seen in Singapore, that is easily available. Mineral oil is a great protectant but due to its low viscosity, it can be quite gummy. But it is food safe - Ikea sells it for the purposes of oiling your wooden chopping boards.

Alternative is Tuffglide Marine (you can find it at specialty hardware shops) but I'm not sure if it's food safe.

WD40 is great as a quick fix but not long term lubricant or corrosion protectant nor is it food safe (due to the solvents and petroleum based products).

You can see the MSDS here:

http://www.wd40company.com/files/pdf...d494716385.pdf

Actually, you can also use cooking oil as a protectant (but you need to wipe it off and put fresh oil regularly since oil will turn rancid over time) or other oils. Some people even use wax (like car wax or rennaisance wax) - but removing wax is a real hassle. And if you are going to resharpen your knives, wax will gum up your benchstones/diamond plates.

re: long term storage in leather sheaths - yes, avoid that. Treated leather has lots of chemicals/minerals in them that may cause corrosion, staining.

If you look around, you may also be able to buy bags that contain corrosive inhibitors like 'zerust':

http://www.zerust.com/product/film/ict-vcibags

If you buy Japanese kitchen knives, they come packed in such papers.
