    I concur with Webmaestro.

    For the following reasons:
    - The knifes are not spring loaded
    - The G8 summit is over

    You will likely have nothing to worry about.

    it seems that the only knifes that you can't import in canada is knifes spring loaded and the one that are hidden (like in a buckle) ...

    the knives you listed are NOT spring assisted, so if what the others say is true, you should be ok even if customs does check them.

    Also no butterfly knive allowed. Not a big deal, but I ordered one and it took more than a month for my package to arrive because they kept it, probably to punish me of buying one :)

    One of my orders with this sku.35062 knife in it is being held at customs. Anyone know why that is? It's a spring assisted knife but still requires you to manually pull it out. It's not a push button spring loaded knife. I thought sping assisted knives were legal in Canada as long as there is not push button release on the handle and the knife won't open from gravity by holding it in certain position.

    there are rules/laws but I've read them and the pshot is this:

    customs can choose to hold anything- and they can keep whatever they want- seriously. Whatever everyone says or doesn't say, the fact is it's up to them...
    As for what's legal in a knife it's going to be their discretion whether they'll allow it...

    If customs do choose to hold the knife in the order, do they hold everything else in the package as well? I have $50 of other things in there like mouse pads and goggles.

    Also, if they choose to hold anything, do they notify you? or will you just never know?

    In the UK f they hold an item they will hold the whole shipment; if they confiscate an item they confiscate the whole shipment. I'd be surprised if Canada are different - why should they take the trouble forward on the rest of your stuff if you're a criminal trying to import illegal knives?
