what are you getting for Xmas 2012 and does it include a sharp thing or two?

how about sharing....

Let's start. I've already gotten mine...a maker told me that he would make me something in 2013, after 4 years of waiting. And I got myself a leatherman MUT recently - no point in waiting until a week before XMAS
4 years? thats a long wait..
any idea what would it be?
;-)

at times I feel like giving up too. There's another maker I've been waiting for 6 years and counting....but since I'm not a big shot nor have big wallet, waiting is what I can do. It does suck at times since the prices go up up up

if you mean an automatic/flick knife/gravity knife, then, it's illegal and not available. I see these questions come up from time to time so generally:

- autos, flick knives (question the definition), gravity knives (these are WW1/2 paratrooper knives), daggers, double-edged, balisongs/butterfly knives, ballistic knives, trench knives (with knuckle duster guards) are illegal.

- some other items are scheduled items and will require authorisation and permits, for eg. swords, kris, parangs, spears etc

you can go to the SPF (police) website which has links to what's ok and what's not. No secret, all there.

As for spring assisted, I've notice that a local dealer (that has pics of the owner with a slung carbine) brings these in, so I guess they may now be viewed as permissible...or perhaps there will be some paperwork involved as well.

Stiletto means commando knife. Double edged. I think you can't buy it.

But you can join the Army and be a Commando. Then you will have it.... in the Army.

Ah, the dagger. Yup, prohibited, but you can buy and frame.

i like the idea to show the collection.. see if you can show us a picture after framing it up. it is a good idea i think, although you have to be extra careful and use only double sided tape from 3M or even put a nail onto the wall, to make sure the frame and its sharp contents does not fall from the high wall, piercing into your feet.. ;-) .. anyway just be careful..

i am thinking to get a glass display cabinet (with lock) and with LED lights to show my collection. but i will need one with a lock which is not easy to find. maybe need to custom make.

Can buy and frame.. order from sheares if you are a CDO.. not sure civilians can buy anot.. but what's the point for this stiletto unless it is to mark a significant event (like the day you get the red beret) in your life..

I though about showcasing my knife collection at home in the living room and in a display cabinet but alot of work to do maintenance with all the dust and humidity/oxidation.. in the end I used the spare dry cabinet and set it at a more desirable condition.. less frequency needed to oil and wipe the blades down

My experience is that best to store it in a glass cabinet than a wood one.. the wood one tends to retain humidity more..
