How would one make a purchase off BladeHQ? Looking at the bolstered Boker Kwaiken among other things to get on Black Friday.
You can use 65daigou. I've used their services before and they're okay. They're not recommended for limited runs that will go OOS quickly due to the fact that they're will be a delay involved. However, you can use their shipping service instead for that.

As for the Kwaiken, the mini version is coming out soon, just a heads up in case you want to buy that.

Thank you guys for the help! I've Singer oil on hand and will use it for the blades.

Now for my stag and wood handles. The guys on Bladeforums recommend using mineral oil to care for them. I don't want to risk ruining them with Singer oil.

Do you know of any specific, better quality mineral oil that I can find locally?
Mineral oil is okay for normal maintenance. I've used it on my Opinel and a bokken I own. I guess if you're looking for a richer finish you'd use (boiled) linseed oil or tung oil.

I'm looking for a nice bokken. Any recommendations? how much is shipping?

Linseed /flaxseed oil is pretty pricey - also, not sure whether it leaves a 'tacky'/sticky finish? I would some extra food safe version if anyone has extra, I want to reseason my cast iron pan. The non stick seems to have come off

I don't really have any insight for recommendations as the one I bought was just for prop purposes. It was painted before and I sanded off the paint after use for keepsake purposes. I believe I got it from some sports shop in Marina Square.

This question has been asked many times here. Please search for the replies first. If there is anything beyond what has already been discussed, please feel free to ask . I'm sure the friendly folks here will be willing to answer your questions.

Thanks for the reply, will give it a try. The bolstered Kwaiken is my favorite among all the variations so far, but all these limited runs can be tricky to get ahold of.

Because knifeknuts are a friendly bunch, we will help you out. Although the question has been asked often, I guess there's no sticky or anything.

1. What can I import, export or possess?

There are a few primary legislation governing this topic. There may be subsidiary legislation, regulations and guidelines but you'll need to do some legal research on your own and if you have time.

Arms and Explosives Act:

http://statutes.agc.gov.sg/aol/searc...epth%3A0;rec=0

It deals with the import, possession, buying/selling of 'arms' which includes bayonets, swords, daggers, spears and spearheads.

An exception is made for the ownership of the above whereby it is not an offence to own for eg. a sword/dagger which is for ornamental or curio - this is why it is legal to buy swords as long as you import it legally and with a licence.

Corrosive and Explosive Substances and Offensive Weapons Act:

http://statutes.agc.gov.sg/aol/searc...;rec=0#pr7-he-

It deals with the carrying of 'offensive weapons' and 'scheduled weapon' in public.

“offensive weapon” includes any instrument which if used as a weapon of offence is likely to cause hurt;

“scheduled weapon” means any offensive weapon specified in the Second Schedule.

[Second Schedule]

Scheduled weapons

1. Any knife, sometimes known as a flick knife, which has a blade which opens automatically by hand pressure applied to a button, spring or other device in or attached to the handle of the knife.

2. Any knife, sometimes known as a gravity knife, which has a blade which is released from the handle or sheath thereof by the force of gravity or the application of centrifugal force and which, when released, is locked in place by means of a button, spring, lever or other device.

3. Any whip manufactured from bicycle or motor cycle chains or from any similar kind of chainwork.

4. All kinds of knuckledusters.

5. Any blade or other instrument attached to or forming part of a bicycle pump, metal-pipe or stick, and concealed therein, which is capable of being used for cutting or stabbing.

6. Any sword, machete or parang, axe, sickle, bearing scraper, spear, bayonet, iron rod, or nancha-ku (segments of wood or metal joined by a chain, leather strap or cord).

7. Any knife, sometimes known as a wasp knife, which is capable of injecting a ball of compressed gas that freezes both human and animal tissues and organs surrounding the point of injection.

2. The SPF website helps to put this together in an easy to understand communication for the layman, and clarifies a little on 'licensing' in relation to the importation. It goes further to clarify what items require licensing (because as you can see, the primary legislation is quite widely drafted).

http://www.spf.gov.sg/licence/frameset_AE.html

But in a nutshell, this pictorial FAQ makes it easy for owner, users and collectors to know what they can buy (whether locally or imported) or otherwise:

http://www.spf.gov.sg/licence/AE/FAQ-%20Items.pdf

The preface in that PDF doc summarises it well:

Permissible Items are not regulated and no licence or permit is required for their import, export or possession. However unlawful possession of such permissible items in any public place may constitute to an offence of Possession of Offensive Weapon or Scheduled Weapon under the Corrosive and Explosives Substances and Offensive Weapons Act.

3. So, in your case:

- if your zombie sword is deemed to be a sword (maybe, as the blade length is 17"), then the item will require an import licence. The item will be detained and you'll need to present yourself at Cantonment to clear the item. There is no guarantee that you will be granted the import licence (there's some fee involved) - I have heard of requests being turned down and vice versa. If you want to be 100% sure, just email SPF and give them details of the item - links, pictures etc and they can advise you further.

- you may not carry that sword around in public unless you have a lawful purpose. Unless you want to be charged and prosecuted. Note the penalties - they are harsh. Note that a sword is a 'scheduled weapon', so the authorities don't have to prove that:

- it is an offensive weapon; and
- it was being carried in public.

So mere possession of a sword allows authorities to charge you if you don't have a lawful purpose, say - display, ornamental, art/exercise/ceremonial etc etc.

Hope that helps. You can donate USD10 to my paypal account to pay for my coffee and cookies

Great links Vespa. Didn't know throwing knives and slingshots are prohibited.
The ZT Scyllis being a single edge knife should be no problem to import. Won't need a license for it. Go for it and post some pics and review once you got it.

Ok, I'd like to make one last special offer to local guys before I retire it to the safe or to another country

1. Bundled Offer only (I won't separate at this price):

ZT0801 + Spyderco Domino with additional aftermarket 'original spaceman' deep carry titanium clip. NIB/LNIB. Box papers everything.All for only USD375 via paypal, all in.


For transparency:

ZT0801 - USD192 + shipping (usually around USD20+)
Spyderco Domino - USD210 + shipping (usually around USD20+). Aftermarket titanium clip is another USD20.
Total value (assuming you buy from same place and pay USD25 shipping): USD447.

2. Marfione Custom Anax plus whole suite of freebies is still available at USD783.75 via paypal, all in. NIB/LNIB. Box papers everything.

For transparency:
The CRKT Ikoma Fossil I'm including is USD50 + shipping (usually around USD20+). The other freebies are priceless (and definitely more than USD20+). Marfione Custom Anax is USD750 + shipping (usually USD20+ or more).

3. Hinderer Custom Spearpoint with custom silver lanyard bead is still available at USD1,280 via paypal, all in. The value of the silver bead plus extra Orange G10 Scale is more than USD100. Dead Mint.

Transparency: This is a very rare grind, I have not seen this long-deep swedged being sold in the aftermarket, don't confuse with the normal swedged spearpoint.

Payment must be via paypal in USD. Not cash, not SGD. Self collect or delivery in Bukit Panjang area.

Hope you can help with my quest to streamline and downsize - my loss is your gain.

Thanks!
up for some air. Still available. Someone has dibs on the hinderer but the Anax and Domino and 801 still waiting for new owner.

ps: all are ok to own and possess!

Anyone here use full serrated blades? I am not a fan of serrations until I tried the partial serrations on my Leatherman Wingman. Cuts extremely aggressively. With slightest slicing action will bite into the material that are hard to cut with the plain edge. It will also push cut paper. Now I wish it was full serrated. Curious about how well those on Spyderco, CRKT and Cold steel work.
The standard SAF Victorinox serrations actually slices pretty well. Other than that, I've heard that Veff serrations are really good. Only downside to serrations is that they're hard to maintain.


Btw, Massdrop's Black Friday drops are pretty good. They have the PM2 at USD99.99 and the Panchenko Coin Claw at USD229.99. Have to use a forwarding agent as they will not ship outside US.
