However i am not sure about the ones from the SOG catalogue.. coz they looks like weapon than the swiss army type.
When you purchase online, you will need to collect it from the Arms & Explosive branch in the Police HQ in Cantonement Road. Registration and some tax is to be done there. When they ask you question, just say you're a collector.
Take note that 'butterfly' knife, some long parang-looking types, and some concealable weapons are banned in Singapore. They will be confiscated.
It is advisable to get your choice of knives from the reputable shops, as they have contacts with the SPF and they can advise you which types of knives are allowed into Singapore.
Declaration and Singapore police's permit is needed if you bring Martial Arts-related weapons with you to oversea for trainings.

Hey I'm a Japanese sword lover. since this is a photography forum, y not post some pics of your swords.... anyway, I believe your twin sword is not katanas right??? it should be a "Tonto" with a "Wakazashi" (Short knife with med Sword)?Originally Posted by chillicutter
Buck Folding Hunter 110 in green bone
For regular use:
regular Buck Folding Hunter 110
Yet another version of the Buck 110
Buck 110 in Basketweave pattern
Of course many many modern knives today will blow the Buck 110 out of the water in terms of materials used, weight and other points..... but THIS knife single-handedly started the folding knife culture...
Boker from germany also has very good folding knives

Daiso knives only $2 each. Cheap and decent. Can cut fruits and vegetable and meat too. Another place for cheap pocket knives would be dealextreme. I collected a few just for fun.
Hmm.. thanks for the info. I am just afraid it may get confiscated when I travel to certain countries on some outdoor fun. Previously I bought some cheap knife in Thailand. Couldn't even cut open the belly of a fish.
just check in your knife or other sharp stuff
just take serious Singapore sportfishermen as a prime example of people travelling with knives .........flying to Australia, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, Maldives etc etc etc on fishing trips have no problem with checked in knives
Go into their Knifemakers For Sale area for a look at works of art

The thinking is that if there are serious crime using this type of weapons, the police is able to trace the owner.
However, I don't need to show my ID to buy a parang or kitchen knife, so go figure.
Yes, I've been to the Police Arms & Explosive branch at Cantonement Road to get a license for my camping knife. It is definitely cheaper to get it online.
Blade Forum for those still keen on playing with knives
try this forum above.... knowledgeable but full of hill billies and rednecks in there
the Knifemakers' knives for sale section is VERY POISONOUS once u see the handmade stuff they have for sale there ........... keep your wallet FAR FAR AWAY

i finally chose cold steel rajah II.
I am surprise to see a thread about knife collecting.
I'm interested to get a Rick Hinderer XM folding knife.
It seemed quite difficult even to get it in the US, wondering if any bros here has any? Can anyone advise where to get it?
i only have the SAF standard issue swiss army knife. which i now use to open kampung durians, courtesy of the sg forests that drops them for free...
I have a nice WW2 Japanese army officer's sword complete with tassle & a few others including krises but maintaining these in our weather is quite tough unless they're kept in a dehumidified cabinet or sort. Must also oil them once a while. Not a nice hobby to have in our area as we can't trade, use or show them.
