That alone raises alarms.

Flick knife in Singapore law usually = switch blade = automatic. This is not an automatic. legal to import and own. offense to possess outside of the house without proper reason. And EDC is not a valid reason in Singapore.

Also, I own this model (sorry guys, I know; axis lock / Benchmade knockoff and all, but it's crazy cheap for 440C steel) and the 3.5" blade is HUGE.

There have been many many documented examples of him taking money and not delivering. Check bladeforums/USN out.

His SM-100 prybar also has no heat treat on it. He does not mention it at all and people have used it to pry and got it damaged. When called out on it, they're only then stating that it is a novelty item.

God knows if his SM-100 blades have a heat treat. If you'd like a DDR design, check out the Kizer Gunhammer instead.

Thanks to one mother, a kid and an irresponsible seller, are we going to see even more restrictions slapped on our hobby?

This is a non-story and nothing dangerous came out of it. For the record, the same kid can buy scissors and penblades off a stationery shop and nobody would bat an eye.

But if restrictions do happen, it should not affect collectors here because we're not 12 year old kids.

It was a crappy Chinese pot metal karambit anyway, you're not missing out on anything.

Pot metal or not, it clearly had an edge sharp enough to slice cardboard, according to what that mother said.

Unless she was just exaggerating.

- Plasma CPM154 blade

Lightly used (cut paper and or cardboard only)
- Calavera gen 2 El Patron large S90V blade
