Just buy local and be done with it.

Not worth worrying about possible confiscation or additional shipping fees.

Many of the resellers and distributors here are generally open to bringing in models they do not stock on a one-time basis if you purchase a number of pieces from them.

For example, the local distributor for Victorinox actually brought in all the 111mm models I asked for as a special order without any additional charges.

Similarly, BlackTactical brought in many un-stocked Schrade models when I asked about the possibility of a special order. They can do so because they are the distributor for Schrade.

Lastly, another physical shop I frequent has brought in a number of Spyderco and CRKT models at my request.

But of course please be realistic. They cannot provide this special service if you're just buying one or two pieces. When i made these requests, I usually have a list of more than 5 models that I have in mind.

Websites that ship knives to Singapore: Knifecenter, DLT trading, knifeworks. These websites are great websites for knives. Knifecenter ships knives starting from 14usd by USPS(Singpost for Singapore part). DLT trading ships knives starting from 20usd by Fedex. Knifeworks ships knives starting around 23 usd by USPS. You can find almost all the current production knives in here. Moreover, they have some amazing websites exclusive knife that you cannot find in Singapore.

Websites that provide knife shipping service: Comgateway. They can ship up to 3.75 inches for blade length. Higher than this you need to contact them for confirmation.

BTW, which model are you looking for? Some brands have a reasonable price at our local shop. Like Ruike, 200SGD+ Zero tolerance, 200SGD+ Benchmade, 200SGD+ We knife, Chris Reeve knife. But some brands like Spyderco and most of cheap knives, the price difference is huge. As a customer, I would not pay for the extra money just because they are the only one sell in local shop. Even at the USA price, the seller has a very huge profit at least more than 20% of the price.

Thanks for the advice bro

Im just starting out but its not for collection but for camping usage in Malaysia (Im writing into customs and SPF on how to walk this across Woodlands checkpoint).
Some that caught my eye is the Mora , Cold steel , Becker bk2

Im focusing on wood handles if possible and carbon steel. Blade length below 10inches for portability

Oh, I see. I am not into fixed blade. But normally at this price range, local shop tend to have higher price. But consider the shipping cost is not small from USA. So it is better to check. But overall I think Mora is good choice for camping usage

Here's a used santoku by Kanesho for sale. Blue steel (aogami) core, soft iron laminate. Shows patina, some rust spots, wear and tear like a properly used tool. With some effort you could probably make it look almost new, and if you use a King #800 grit stone, you could possibly get the kasumi finish at the edge to show. Comes with custom made 5000 yo antiqued bog oak, european ash and nickel spacers.

Asking for only $250. OR $300 if you want a saya included.

https://sg.carousell.com/p/kanesho-a...dle-187990781/



Thank you.
STill available - $300. And it now includes a nice kasumi finish, and a fresh edge of Japanese natural stones.

And pics of the knife with the kasumi finish (yass).





Only $300 for this custom handled kanesho aogami santoku! Kasumi was applied using a shobudani stone.

Anyone know where I can get a Victorinox Evolution S14 locally?

It will be the perfect complement to my existing SuperTinker due to tis slightly smaller size.
