Most of the retailers here bring in Cold steel... like Cesaers, hock gift shop... etc. But the pricing is a tad bit higher...

I bought Cold Steel Leatherneck-Tanto Knife and 80PGTK GI Tanto from Amazon then shipped by Vpost without any problem. But now they said my Ka-bar 1271 is dangerous knife and told me to discard or return it back to Amazon. Confuse me

The prices are marked up too even from local online stores. I'd rather ship it in from US. But that's just my opinion.

just buy it from knifecenter and ship it in. The handle looks uncomfortable. That is not a knife I would buy - it looks aggressive is not utility oriented (americanised tanto tip, top guard, huge top and bottom guards). Steel is tough due to 0.5% carbon (typical sword steel), not sure about edgeholding. The video does look impressive since there is no edge damage from cutting down on the car door. Sometimes it's the grind and thickness behind the edge. You can try cutting down cans (at the lip) and see if the steel rolls or chips for your own observations/evaluations.

I received a fixed blade via USPS before, not sure if it was just luck..

Was hoping that if the price isn't that big a diff, to buy locally to save the trouble.

Looking for an inexpensive, fixed blade beater and that seem to fit the bill. Not sure if it's just good advertising though XD

Really? I've seen sanramu and buck knives there, didn't see the cold steels though. Must go back again..

If you are looking for a utility fixed blade. Nothing beats the Mora in value-per-dollar!
