But dono can past out customs or not. Plus it's not cheap leh. If kanna cheong gong by AEP really heart pain man.

But I am very impressed with the blade.
Just email to A&E and show a link to the item lor,
they reply pretty fast.. Last time wanted the swamprat waki but their preorder sells out pretty fast!

OK, saw the scrapyard version on the comp instead of the iphone, don't really like the handle. still prefer the swamprat's..

By the way, does anyone of you buy Blade Magazine?

I bought one recently and found that it really gives alot of info, esp for Knife Fanatics. Learned quite a fair bit from it too, esp for newbie like me.
About $10 and quite worth it.
Mostly read the pdf online here and there, don't really follow.. where did you get your copy from? Kino?

Ya. I got it from Kino at Taka. There's another one called Knives. That one not so good. Blade magazine is better.

Quite true.
But at times dono which tread to go mah. And the magazine give you all the good websites to look the knives that you may be interested.

But to me thus far the best is to ask you guys here lah. Helpful and willing to share experience.

Yup, it's fine as a set for people who never ever had a knife and a proper kit. But otherwise, this knife is just modified around the gerber prodigy.

I personally prefer a g10 handle and no serrations..

The ultimate knife looks quite promising if you are not those hardcore users. If u have never owned a knife before, it'll be a good starter =)

Here u go
http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/sh...ghlight=grylls

But yeah, to knife collectors like me, this knife looks like junk =/

Wah lau! Arr neh aw eh ah!! Lucky u gave the link man! After reading it...I think I wouldn't want to waste my money. Maybe I rather go for an LMF II in that case.
Other than that, what would you recommend? And about how much it will cost me?


Same for you Viix:

What would you recommend?

Well, so far the ESEE-4 is the most reliable knife I've used in the field, and really holding up well. Alot of my NS mates got the seal pups but the blade geometry is really not practical for usage.

If you are rambo then probably it might be useful but I'm not and my experience with it has been disappointing.. It might be good as a fighter knife (i wouldn't know since I've never stab anything with it) but for greenwood or deadwood processing, simple is best. Well, the only except ion will be the khurki.

If you really wanna know which is the best knive to use, the machete or parang is honestly the best knife there is. It's the item my detachment will die die indent before outfield.. Even the bengkias use it.

What kind of knife u want? I would recommend seal pup elite for GP.
Ok, this I have to ask, why the Seal pup? All the gadget boys I know have one but they never use it so I wonder what's the appeal other than looking like a professional soldier on that SBO with a alicepack/black hawk 3day assualt pack on the back..

Seal pup elite has a pretty thick blade stock, well balanced, easy to sharpen, and it's stainless. Esee 4 has a slightly thicker blade and is heavier, which may be better for some people. However 1095 steel in Singapore isn't a very good idea. People in the states complain about 1095 steel rusting there... what else in Singapore?
However i dun own an Esee knife so i can't really comment about which is better. FYI, i just ordered an izula coz i was attracted to Esee's imba warranty. Lol

Ah, yes I see, your points are precisely why I hate it. I find the balance a little off personally because i get fatigue fast using it, which is why I feel it's more of a fighter knife.. it seems to be balance for that..
Well, rust isn't a problem if you use it.. in fact out in the rain, I've never had rust problems because you're using it all the time there's no chance to rust..

Well, warranty wise, I doubt you'll ever need it.. it's pretty hard to destroy a knife!~
