Comgateway uses DHL and so far I've not experienced any problems with them.

I usually prefer couriers like Fedex or UPS. Only started using them this year and i've had better experience with them compared to the local post service..

speed and cost
Fedex is cheaper and faster. But not everyone uses Fedex. Another downside is that there is more delay if you use Fedex and ur knives get stopped by customs. But still fedex is more convinient- u just have to wait at home.
Usps will end up with singpost and if customs stop ur knife there, u'll have to go down to open package and collect it. If the officer there buay song (just kidding) then ur knives/knife get sent to cantolment blah blah blah.. run here run there blah blah.. and yeah

So, if go Cantonment how?

You have to prove to the IO that you are not some crazed maniac out to hurt people?

That would certainly help I think haha. I've never gone down before tho. Fedex clears it for me usually. Even when I used usps and get stopped I only have had to go down to ICA, never been asked to go AEB. Then again, I dont order regulated stuff..

Everytime i go in cantolment, they made me sit in one very cold and small room with an officer all alone. That officer looks very ''ah-beng'' type, as if he's going to whack me. Then he keep questioning me everything etc etc.

Yes, don't buy any assisted knives or double edge blade, etc etc.

P.S i'm just kidding about the cantolment part. LOOL XD
Overthere it's like a secondary clearence. Nothing to worry about just that have to travel here and there. Oh yeah, u'll be screened through a metal detector, so don't bring anything funny if u're going there.
