Hi All

Beside
Knifecenter (pissed me because knife got scratch but they act blur never reply),
knifeworks (poor review mentioned from other forum - haven't try), Knifesupply (email them enquiries no reply- this already shows no support), ebay, amazon.. Any other direct knife online shop to go for that ship to SG?

Thanks
this thread old post also got bad feedback about knifeworks. seems like they like to take advantages of overseas buyers.

Overseas buyers are typically at the short end of the stick. It costs too much to ship and re ship so most sellers try and avoid going the extra mile. Plus overseas buyers cannot avail themselves to local consumer laws and are less likely to dispute in public. It's just the way the cookie crumbles. Especially when you're loking for bargain basement prices. I have stuck with the standard dealers and there's been a percentage of lemons as well.

Hi

Thanks guys for the assist to help me crave it with wider knowledge.

Btw, I have done polishing the 801 one side after diamond polish the scratches. most probably has to take out the whole elmax blade. doing bit by bit (patience), otherwise ruin this hot model.

No choice to turn into a project piece. Eyesore to see the unusual scratch (not user scratch loh)

Bro PM me your hp to whats app... Not enough pot count lah...

The stone wash actually is like a coat, it can push polished away. What showed out is actually polished micro dimples surfaces. Don't seems like grind it down to shape. I suspect its molded out.

I will not grind myself. no Skill. may hurt the heat treatment.

I ordered the Reate Hills on 24-Nov and received it today. It's actually pretty nice, the action is very smooth, although I'm not sure if the strong-ish detent has anything to do with it. But I can easily shake the knife close after disengaging the framelock (which as a steel insert) if that's any indication. Fit and finish is nice too!

Thanks! I think you can have it customised to a limited extent, choosing blade steel might not be an option but no harm asking I guess. From what I've seen you can request for specific colour anodizing at least.

With regards to ordering, I reached out to sales@reateknives.com, paid USD 205 via PayPal which includes PayPal charges and shipping.

As part of my Xmas fund raising, I'm listing this Stuart Harvey Puukko is up for sale. It has a true scandi ground 'smashed' ball bearing damascus blade and mammoth ivory collar + brown mallee handle. Stuart refinished the knife and made an awesome brand new leather sheath with his beautiful pearl stitching that gives a nice click when the knife is inserted. This needs a new home. The knife is presently with Stuart and the pics are courtesy of him.

I'm pricing it very reasonably at only SGD350 or USD265 shipped to you, paypal nett of fees. This is a true custom handmade knife.

Hey Vespa, mind letting me know if he does it in M390? I asked him a month ago but he mentioned that they only produce the "hills" version in S35VN for now. Thanks!

Amazon doesn't really sell fixed knives oversea. Middleman shipper doesn't ship knives too.

Ebay is way too dangerous to buy knives too, as they will not be covered .

Knifecenter is still the best. Urbantoolhaus can be great like black tactical(more expensive by 10-30%), as they are local.

You see the amazon prices and wan to try them? Dun regret, as their prices plus shipping almost add about the same.
U search for blades,there are some fixed knifes which Amazon ships to SG, somemore over $125 it's FSS. But I never try b4

Anyone tried ?
