With all the recent teen gangs slashing incidences I really hope it dont indirectly affect us genuine knives collectors...

I read from straits times few days back, some MP even suggest licensing for jungle knives and camping knives :eek:

Ironically if you notice from pictures of newspaper, the knives they used for violence are all kitchen bread knive and cleavers :look:

That's what we call "ivory tower policy making." It's just silly reactionism out of complete ignorance.

The knives people collect are high quality tools that cost a lot of money. Which gangster with any brains is going to go spend a lot of money to order a high quality camping knife and risk going to ICA to be registered, or buy one in a local shop and be registered with the police? Only law-abiding citizens like us would do it.

Gangsters mostly buy kitchen knives, box-cutters and water melon knives which are cheap and can be thrown away after they've done their illegal activity, and won't be registered. If anything, that MP should suggest people register kitchen knives instead.

These kind of stupid laws when enacted only affect the law-abiding folks like us who use these knives for their proper purposes - as tools, not weapons. Criminals will find other ways to hurt people. Are they going to license metal pipes next? Or baseball bats? Or spanners above a certain size?

It's just silly.

Your point is exactly the case!! No gangsters with abit of brain will order expensive knives and risk collecting it from ICA or cantonment station having their particulars recorded, when they have the intention to use it as a weapon to hack their rival and most likely dispose it after the fights, as it will become conclusive evidence against them

But yet, law abiding collectors are the ones that will be affected the most when they tighten the laws on collectable knives and still wont stop the gangsters from using kitchens knifes or other stuff for violence.

Knives can never kill human. Only humans kill humans

I agree with you. Curfew for youth and more intensive contant counselling and brain washing will be more effective.

Then uncles like us can continue with our expensive hobby hahaha

BTW, I ordered a Fallkniven PHK from KnifeSupply and received their confirmation, for two weeks now they have not process the order... I sent them request for order status and no reply... think this site really sucks !!

This company is really crap, I waited another week and still no reply to my email.

I wonder this knife supply website is a scam to trick people into disclosing their credit card information

I sent knife supply another email today enquiring about my order... if they still don't, I guess this time really kena con liao.

Is it charged to your card already? Ask the CC bank to stop the transaction if it is.. then monitor for fraudulent transaction..

So far I've not encountered any phishing of CC online, but dunno why always kanna when I go overseas.. change a few cards already everytime I return to sg :o

How cheap u wan and how many tools? ou can check out edcdepot as they've limited multitool for pretty cheap shipping. DX multitools are ok but I wouldn't trust the steel they use as the quality is pretty random.. If you are looking for an online retailler, you can check out Smartgiftidea where I got my MUT.. great seller and very fast shipping.

Maybe low than 30USD? for the tools, as long it has those reasonable tools which normally it includes? such as screwdriver, tweezer, scissor..

Hope you can reccomend something that is randy handy and small.. =D thanks!
