    I am going to order my first knife from here, (http://www.dealextreme.com/p/mini-steel-manual-release-folding-knife-20cm-full-length-32577) and i am ordering it with a few other items, so will it get through nz customs?, aswell can it be under my name (cause im 16) or does it have to be under my parents name?

    ty, Max

    it should be fine, ive just recently ordered this knife, apparently it takes longer than any other to arrive, but ive imported other knives to NZ just fine. be aware that to import knives to nz the blade has to be less than 10cm, and not assisted (ie flick knives, balisongs, etc..) . ive never been contacted by customs when importing knives, so you should be alright, (im 17).

    could you let me know when your knife arrived to NZ, as you ordered a couple of weeks before i did.?

    I'm kinda unwary of getting knifes into NZ, if me and my mates order a package of 10 together what do you think would happen? Would it be better to order them all separately?

    not too sure as i haven't ordered a bulk amount before. Just make sure the blades are under 10cm and they are manual folding knives, not assisted (careful as some dealextreme knives are actually flick knives although they say otherwise). i would probably order them individually, or in orders of two or three.. Shipping is free anyway lol. The worst that could happen is custom seizes them, and your out of pocket a few dollars.

    Do you think that the postman and/or custom clerk will know your age just by looking at your name and address on the package?

    I havn't had any problems getting any knives through customs.

    I don't think you have to be over 18 to own a knife here do you? Is that a new law?

    Huh? I thought you must be >= 18 to even have a money account.
