Welcome to the "Gayle Bradley Club" - it's a fantastic knife. I bought one and liked it so much that I bought a second as a 'safe queen'.
There is a new version - the GB2 which is slimmer but has a slightly longer blade than the original.

Stropping compound

Hello guys! Can advice on where to get stropping compound in local retail? I know online have but I wanna get them locally, at least see what I buy.

Daiso sells green compound. It should be at the hardware compartment where they sell drill bits, screwdrivers, tools and etc. It should be a slightly off-green looking block in a blister pack with yellow cardboard.

As for stropping, I do not think it is overrated. It is a simple and easy way to maintain the edge of your knives after regular light/medium usage. You will definitely notice the difference after stropping.

If Amazon ship direct to SG, most probably will not have any issue.

If via Freight forwarder like CGW or borderlinx, your parcel will be rejected.

Just a note, assisted opening is not allowed.
In the past Amazon ship Kershaw knifes to SG.
Now they stopped all

Hello, welcome. Best to start on the right footing - I would give that knife a miss. Get something you would want to hang on to for years, even as a first knife. If it's a budget issue, get the better known brands. A spyderco delica will not be out of place in any bag/gear 5 years down the road.

Are assisted openers now officially disallowed? I still see many being sold online in Singapore, last I checked they're not prohibited as they're not autos but somewhere in the grey area.

Have you tried the usual online dealers that ship to Singapore? Newgraham, Cutlery Shoppe, Knifecenter (EDMW favourite due to fast and affordable shipping ) etc.

Vespa bro, it's listed as prohibited.

I asked Black Tactical before it he could help me import Kershaw.
They say no to assisted opening leh.

I looked at the list again - thought they may have updated it. The prohibition is against automatics. NOt flippers or assisted openers (the release is the blade itself, not via a button or 'trigger' on the handle). Am I reading it wrong (lately my eyesight has been bad, the problem with ageing and long-sightedness)....

Hi, while this knife may look nice, I would really advise against getting it.


1) Assisted opening knives I'm not really sure what is the consensus on it. It seems like there are many places selling them online. I personally would not risk it as good manual folders open just as smoothly.

2) Assisted opening means more parts can go wrong in that knife. Not really advised for beginners. Once whatever mechanism in it goes kaput, the knife might not even be functional for all you know.

3) There are plenty of better options out there. You can browse through many of great offerings from Kershaw, Spyderco, Cold Steel, CRKT (to name a few) at a reasonable budget. Maybe you can state what kind of requirements/purpose you'll be using the knife for and the people here can give you some suggestions.

Good luck, and have fun collecting.

Man jailed for having card-knife at State Courts



SINGAPORE - A hotel worker was jailed for three months on Wednesday for having a card knife with a 7cm-long blade at the State Courts.

Hairulnizam Hanafi, 30, admitted to an amended charge of having the offensive weapon without lawful purpose at Havelock Square on March 10 this year.

The court heard that Hairulnizam had accompanied his father to the State Courts that morning as his father had a court mention.

He placed his wallet in a basket at the security counter near the entrance of the building.

When the basket went through the X-ray machine, a Certis Cisco officer spotted a sharp object inside the wallet.

The officer asked if he had anything to declare from his wallet and showed him the prohibited item. Hairulnizam then took out the card knife from his wallet.

Hairulnizam, who claimed he bought it from a shop, had been jailed and caned before in 2009 for having a scheduled weapon. He had other unrelated convictions such as using criminal force on a public servant, theft and drug-related offences.

The father of two could have been jailed for up to two years under the Miscellaneous Offences (Public Order and Nuisance) Act.

Look at his rap sheet. There's more to the article. In any case, caveat emptor. The burden is on you to show a lawful purpose. the cardsharp is a useful tool, but I would not smuggle it past scanners.

that's what I was telling my friend this morning. Seems like there are some things not spelled out in the article.
