My bad didn't read clearly.

Any idea if knives with Blade 7.4 inch Long allowed? I'm looking to get buck general 120.
7.4 inch is somewhere like 18cm, should be okay.

I sent a email to SPF and got this reply, I thought to share it here:
-----

1. Automatic knives, double edge knives are prohibited regardless of their length.
2. Fixed blade knives are permitted. Kukri which blade extending more than 30 cm, need to apply import licence.

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a knife for EDC and i've found cold steel code 4 to my liking (thru youtube review) planning to get from urbantoolhaus.

Anybody own this knife? is it worth the money?

Thanks in advance!
With the recent steel upgrade that the Cold Steel knives have gotten, they're really worth it to buy.

I don't own one, but the Code 4 is probably one of the better designs. The aluminum body will not kill your pockets if you intend to clip it on.

Both blades looks fierce. You got your zombie apocalypse covered.


OK guys, I want to move this out by this weekend.

ZT801 at USD200 via paypal all in. you can't get it at this price anywhere else. This is also the second batch - super super smooth flipping action. Blade practically falls down close as well. This is the lowest I'll go and I'm eating a loss already.

The Big Chris Bolo I will let go for USD530 via paypal all in. If you commission a CPM3V Bolo at this size with Peters Heat Treat etc. you will find that it will cost you a lot more, and that's not including shipping etc. And freight forwarders will not ship this type of large chopper either. You'll have to go via USPS which costs a lot more and spend I have more than this invested in this blade. Don't equate CPM3V with spring steel, 10XX series steel, 5160, 52100 etc. As Worcer says, CPM3V is about the best all round chopping steel there is. And it doesn't rust that easily either - just wipe down with oil. It holds its edge way better than the regular carbon steels as well - this is first hand experience.

They are great blades both of them and prices are more than reasonable

it's at the discretion of SPF. are you sure you are ready to collect swords? you should enquire directly with SPF - generally it is better to get their position on this for your item etc. It also depends on who you are...they are less likely to approve if you are a high risk individual.

thx for the reply.

i read through the faq n they onli say to bring the sword down for their assessment. but as i cannot bring in real weapons and sg does not have any place selling (not that i know of), i cannot get my hands on the sword since it's physically in japan. so i asked my question here hoping someone who was in a similar position as me could give me some guidance.

General Knife Discussion

Thanks deadjr and Shikiwaru for the reply

Im just curious. How many of us in this forum actually carry a knife with you on a daily basis?

If you do, what do you usually carry and have you ever encountered any instances when ppl ask you why u carry a knife or give u weird looks?

I stick to a knife with a blade length of 2.5' or less, usually a SAK. When i take it out to cut something, i usually go to a discrete corner just to avoid weird stares hahha.

Just wanna hear ur experiences and start a mini discussion.

Actually I carry a folder on a daily basis, came in handy a few times. But that's the thing about a knife, you won't need it until you need it. So I rather have it on me 100% of the time and only use it 10%, rather then not having it and needing it.

Haven't encountered life or death situations mind you, just everyday tasks.
I don't go for the tactical looking folders for my edc so thus far no one has given me any strange looks.

anyways, those who carry won't tell

I do have the SAF bantam on me most of the time - they're great fingernail cleaners and the tweezers are super useful.

I will not comment on anything specific, but I can tell you about the great knowledge passed down to me during my NSF days: "Do but don't get caught".

This applies to everything. Singapore is definitely not vice-free; I have seen people carrying the 4-letter V-word item around.

If you do get caught, please have a good reason/explanation beforehand.

In case anyone is interested. All prices firm and fair unless you buy more than one, then I'll throw in a small discount (depending on the configuration). Thanks for looking

1. Marfione Custom Anax integral framelock, stonewashed blade. NIB. Box, papers, cert. This is a phenomenal folder - a ground-breaker of sorts. A full custom integral at this price is hard to find. USD[revised, see posts below]. I will also include some additional freebies like stickers and maybe a patch.

2. Hinderer handground custom long/deep swedged spearpoint XM18 3.5 with Duratech 20C blade (sterile satin blade - Gen 3). Non-flipper. Black G10 scale. Mint from maker. Perfect action, sharpness and fit and finish. Does not come with the pictured skull tab as it was sold off separately. The regular tab has been reinstalled. Also, this deep swedge version is very rare - don't confuse with regular spearpoint. USD[revised, see posts below].

3. Spyderco Domino with custom spaceman deep carry titanium clip. USD[revised, see posts below].

(BTW, a new Domino w/o the custom titanium clip is already USD210 + shipping, the clip itself will cost you another USD20 plus shipping).
