    Default Army Knife?

    Anyone knows where to get army knifes/ daggers in singapore? Not the swiss army ones but the so called commando ones? those with a handle and blade, not the folding ones.

    I heard that beach road market, where all army guys go buy their barang there have?

    its not a restricted item.
    its jus against the law to carry anything longer than X inches jus for nothing
    if you going for fishing or sth and can justify it under lawful conditions like hacking in the jungle you can carry a parang even.
    there's a shop at peninsula plaza at 2nd level that jus sells them.
    else you can check online.

    another option is to look for dive knives the ones that you can use to cut urself free from entangled in nets (NOT OYSTER HUNTING HOR! will kok you if you do that in SG waters.. haha )

    depends on wat you want it for lah.. hmmm

    There is a hardware shop on 4th floor Shaw Centre that sells a range of hunting knives. Warning, they are NOT cheap

    Also have you tried here:

    You can get well known brand like Cold Steel and Al Mar from Sheares Marketing but the price is quite expensive.

    You will have to write a form with your IC number and model of knife for police record through the vendor.

    There is a store at Chinatown that sells knives which was originally from Sngarms.

    If you are buying knives from overseas, you have to go to the Police Explosive and Arms to get the import permit and most of the international courier service CSO have no idea about the rules for importing knives into Singapore.

    those are controlled military items.

    i agree with what slaam said. I've gone hiking in malaysia and carried a utility knife across the woodlands checkpoint. Customs officer asked me what was I doing with that knife on my return. I told him I just came back from a hike in malaysia. He asked a few other questions, checked my other items (including stinking clothes) and i got through.

    Another incident was while returning from a dive trip from malaysia. My instructors had diving knives with them and they didn't have problem getting through customs.

    if you have a reason to justify why you are carrying it. It doesn't only apply to knives. Any sharp or dubious objects that can be deemed "dangerous" can land you on the wrong side of the law.

    THe most common I've heard of is carrying a screw driver with no valid reason and you might be suspected for attempted burglary if so suay you get stopped by police for 'routine or random' check.

    During my sec sch days, my friend (a little ah beng looking) got hauled back to a police station because he paced up and down 2 times at a HDB block while waiting for a friend. They suspected him for "loitering" and "attempted burglary" and kept him at the station for almost a day. I vaguely remember him telling me that the police keep asking "where are his tools".
