    Red face Anyone orders knife from Dealextreme?

    Hi All,

    The knives in dealextreme are extremely drooling... I am beginning for a knife collection. May I ask whether anyone has successfully had his knife or swiss knife shipped successfully from dealextreme to Singapore??

    Customs is the stop-check authority, and enforcement/permits would be under the SG Police Force (SPF). Check on their websites about importing knives and restricted items into Singapore.

    Its best to ask the SPF Arms & Explosives Div. But the usual restrictions do apply, eg. no autos, no double bladed knives like daggers, no balisongs, no gravity knives etc...

    Edit:Be warned, as with all hobbies, sooner or later one may just spend $xxxx on these items lol

    yes i ordered a ceramic kitchen knife from DX before. it was 6 inches in length. i remember reading somewhre that you can import a knife 6 inches or less without a permit.

    anyway, i got a letter saying that the parcel was held at the customs office in singpost HQ at paya lebar, and i have to go there to open it so it can be inspected.

    a little troublesome, but no big fuss. i paid about 80% less than what i would have paid in the stores.

    Ok.... real life example.

    I've ordered a together of 5 pocket folding knife and 1 ceramic kitchen knife from DX since the beginning of the year. The folded knife range from 8-24cm.... but all have no problem coming in... the only one I had problem is with the ceramic kitchen knife.... which on the SingPost X-ray, must have looked really dangerous....

    I got a letter from Custom and was told to go to SingPost HQ to collect my knife (and explain myself). If I don't collect my knife within 2 weeks from the letter.... SingPost would sent the package back to HK.

    I when to SingPost HQ with my letter.... saw the custom officer, he open the package infornt of me and when the ceramic kitchen knife popped out, he asked me to explained, which I did.... and he just issue me a letter for collection, but also told than CID would get a copy of the letter also. I walk out without further issue.... and no, CID didn't ask me to drink coffee .

    Btw.... on the letter of collection, it is stated that as long as the knife is kept inside your house and not brought out into any public place.... ordering knives BY POST from overseas is ok.... but you might have to go explain & collect at SingPost HQ every once in awhile....
