    also, ermm... do you know what should i do if i bring it for trips overseas? will they permit me to bring out and in of country and into another country?
    Swiss army knives are definitely no problem, tried it a few times. I also want to know about folding knives that are like the ones in the SOG catalogue, will the customs let us bring in if we put it in the check-in luggage? Also what if we purchase online? Need we declare anything?

    Yep, no problem with swiss army knives, as long as it is kept in the check-in luggage.

    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)?

    For collection:
    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

    Wow, looks like they are straight out of a classic american movie The prices of the knives for regular use seems very reasonable, i'm guessing the price in local shops will be a little higher?

    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

    Thats what they did when i got mines.

    Then what will happen? Does that mean the CID will or can go to our house spot check anytime they want?

    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.

    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 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.

    You can try bladehq.com
    Hinderer knives quite expensive, 3" cost around US$900 or you can get alternative such as ZT 0550 , ZT 0560. Both are designed by Rick
