If you do get a knife I suggest you don't go around telling people you are carrying one for self protection. You'll be getting into trouble really fast.

carrying any form of weapon is not self protection, it is more of a deterrent, especially carried openly just like our home team assets and the army..

self protection is all about situational awareness and conflict avoidance.. all armed forces will teach you that the weapon is to be used only as a last resort and only when your life is endangered.

carrying a concealed weapon is malicious, especially in Singapore where all the security measures is put into place courtesy of the singapore government.

I really do not see the point why anyone here would think their life would be in danger.. if there ever is any threat, the best weapon in life is humility and graciousness.. a smile and a polite attitude makes for a civil and gracious society. I do not believe that "An armed society is a polite society."

Yep, it basically covers everything!

I guess the point here is if we are buying knives just to keep and display at home, then no issue. The law does not say we can't own or collect them. However, if we are caught in a public place with one, we better make sure we have a damn good reason for carrying one - saying for self-protection probably isn't going to go down well with the law.

Hi Viix, That's a very good point and I agree with you.

In Singapore, there is no reason to carry knive for self protection. Carrying knive around for self protection will only result in high tendancy to get into unnecessary trouble.

Keeping knifes should purely be as a hobby. Just as I appreciate and specialty steel used to construct the blade and and workmanship in the grinding and polishing of the finsh surface.

I always have this feeling that people tends to think we collect knives are up to something no good... This feeling is especially strong when I was questioned by custom when collecting my package. I think most people link knives to bad things like crime or killing
