Hi guys, I'm looking to get an affordable bushcraft knife and folding knife for camping and EDC respectively. The reason for the budget is because I'd like to be able to throw them into my check in bag when travelling without worrying about it being stolen while still being reliable as I'm using them for camping/backpacking.

I'm eyeing Moraknives for bushcraft but the mark up in SG is ridiculous. Is there any way I might be able to ship them over from US for a cheaper price?
Also, do you guys have any sub $50 reliable folding knife to recommend?

The last time I read through the thread I do remember someone posting a website that ships direct to SG but it has since slipped my mind.

TIA for any help given!
HGS has the Companion for $22. I think that is a reasonable price.

Thanks! I must have been comparing the wrong models, my bad. Ended buying the Mora Companion and a Buck Bantam.

No problem. They're both great knives for the price.

That alone raises alarms.

hi guys, knife noob here....
Flick knife in Singapore law usually = switch blade = automatic. This is not an automatic. legal to import and own. offense to possess outside of the house without proper reason. And EDC is not a valid reason in Singapore.

Also, I own this model (sorry guys, I know; axis lock / Benchmade knockoff and all, but it's crazy cheap for 440C steel) and the 3.5" blade is HUGE.

There have been many many documented examples of him taking money and not delivering. Check bladeforums/USN out.

His SM-100 prybar also has no heat treat on it. He does not mention it at all and people have used it to pry and got it damaged. When called out on it, they're only then stating that it is a novelty item.

God knows if his SM-100 blades have a heat treat. If you'd like a DDR design, check out the Kizer Gunhammer instead.

Thanks to one mother, a kid and an irresponsible seller, are we going to see even more restrictions slapped on our hobby?

This is a non-story and nothing dangerous came out of it. For the record, the same kid can buy scissors and penblades off a stationery shop and nobody would bat an eye.

But if restrictions do happen, it should not affect collectors here because we're not 12 year old kids.

It was a crappy Chinese pot metal karambit anyway, you're not missing out on anything.
