Hi guys. Can recommend a good place to get a knife in Singapore? Online probably out as I need it by this weekend. Looking for something more versatile, as it's a gift for my uncle who likes to go hiking and camping.

I remember I bought a knife from Sheares before. If no recommendations I'll probably head back there. Budget probably around 60-70 bucks.

Any knife/brand recommendations that can hit that price range most welcome. =)

Edit: A folder would probably be ideal as he usualy drives across the causeway to camp there. Easier to hide from their customs I guess.

HGS? Saw online that they've got a fair number of options.

I just got hold of Warthog CURVE sharpener. It works.

Now I can again shave using my SOG Mini Vulcan, the only knife I own.

For safety sake, I will stick to my Gillette Mach 3.

Did you end up getting your yuna?
I have already designed it with him and paid the deposit. It's a few months of wait for the knife to be completed.

His communication, I would say is quite good, always get replies within a day so far.

Anyone got recommendations for a good slipjoint that meets the following criteria?
- Wide blade
- 2.75" - 3.25" blade length. Nothing bigger. Can go a little smaller though.
- Body should preferably not be made of wood or any 'natural' materials like bone or horn.
- Stiff backspring. The blade should not be able to be 'flung' open from a wrist-whip.
- Preferably single-blade only. But dual blades are fine if done in a Canoe style (i.e.: one blade on each end). No barlows, and no modern, tactical-style folders. I already have the Spyderco UKPK and Byrd Tern for the latter.
- Nail nick opening.
- Steel type not important, but should be at least 5cr15mov or equivalent / better

The closest option that matches this is AG Russell's Rancher, but he does not ship here:


Any other suggestions?

Hi guys any suggestions for getting knives for my kitchen? Budget probably around 200+.

I'm thinking of getting a chopper, a chef's knife, and maybe another smaller one. Would this be enough for a typical kitchen?

Looking for a Strider folding knife. If you have one for sale, please pm me with details (model, condition, asking price, pictures etc.) so that we can discuss and see if we can make a deal.

Thanks.

Anyone interest in we knife?

Recently I talked with Fstoplight who is the distributor of We knife in Singapore. Their low price model seems not matching the price at US. But their expensive one like 704CF-C has a similar price as BladeHQ or knifecenter.

Their price is S$390 and gets 10% in-store discount which is then S$351 (USD 257 by google rate). BladeHQ sale it at USD 253. Consider all the shipping and exchange rate by Visa. Their price basically same.

I'd like to order from them, but the problem is that they do not have the model I like in stock. Moreover, they only import we knife in batch. Therefore, it is not clear that what time they would import new WE knife. I am trying to find some other people who interested in we knife, and get enough people that we can ask them to import knife for us.
