I know mine is child's play to the ones you people collect but I intend to buy 3 sets of penknife, yes penknife or crafting knife as some might say from US. Would I be able to bring them in through Comgateway?

I'm looking at Xacto penknifes. SG have but the ones I'm looking at, SG never bring in.
no issue with pen/craft knives.

King of Yue, Gou Jian's sword
I see....ok, it's a bronze sword. I'll take steel over bronze anyday, anytime and I'm pretty sure steel will outperform bronze in terms of toughness, edgeholding and sharpness.

carving knives are sold in arts and crafts stores in Singapore, there's no reason for it to be detained. Why would lighters be confiscated, they're not controlled goods.

do you have a pic of your carving knives?

Lighter confiscated by ica? What sort of lighters are they? I've ordered zipped and butane lighters and have not encounterd any issue. Unless you mean comsgateway refuse to ship them.. The only lighters that will be confiscated are probably those gun shape or bullet design lighters..

xacto should be OK for cgw as they classified as stationary.. No problem with ica..

I wanna get the above 2. Basically just penknifes. SG's Artfriend sell expensive and they never bring in the black one.

My lighters were basically normal BIC lighters but the fat version. SG never bring in the fat version and they don't sell single lots thus I bought a pack of 30 from Ebay. End up ICA/Customs told me its prohibited items thus they confiscated it.

Their blades are very fine and very sharp. Never been disappointed with X-Acto when it comes to pen knifes and small blades.

I use it to trim/cut cue tips and ferrules so I need the blade to be sharp and thin. I can't afford any mistakes because most of them are customers cues to begin with and been confident of X-Acto for a few years. Just that my blade supplies are going down to the last piece that's why need to restock.

Stationery Superstore is at the Funan, address below.. but I don't think they stock xacto.. I only know art friend has them.. Maybe you can try OLFA blades.. been using them for cutting small props and they're comparable to Xacto IMHO..

#02-23/29 Funan Digitalife Mall
109 North Bridge Rd
Tel: 63323870

X-Acto can just hoot online la~

I think your lighter got confiscated cos it has fuel, therefore it's prohibited. So far all the lighters I have got have to be empty before it can be shipped. Else I think u need a licence for flammable goods..

BTW what you use to slick your hair?

Local distros would be Art Friend and this other hobbyist shop around Pomo area. Both of them don't have the model I'm looking at. I have the light duty one but wanna go heavy duty because their blades are thicker.

Yeah. That was what the officer told me because mine had fuel and he said I need license for that.

Okay this is a first people ask me about my hair other than in the hair thread.

OS Sea Salt spray, Nigelle Bold Make Clay then finish with Osis+ Freeze 3. Blow dry when SSS aka Sea Salt Spray is applied.
