    I suggest that you compute the charges for delivery, cost of item, etc...also factor in the wait time...then compare it to the price locally, say at SOE (hanep ba sa plugging?) If the price difference is low, then buy it here, at least you get to take it home right away.

    yup i can say its ok!it would be cheaper if u have a relative or a friend in the states who can bring it here for u. u'll be able to save the shipping charges. minsan kasi malaki shipping charges going here sa pinas :) what i usually do is i get it thru internet and have it shipped sa aunt ko sa states.... 5$ lng shipping charge minsan wala pa unlike if u have it shipped here sa pinas. check mo na lng sa site how much if u have it shipped here :)

    i agree. i've been buying all of my gun accessories online. between $5 to $10 lang ang shipping charges. and mura pa kasi malakas ang peso ngayon.

    no offense po sa mga local stores natin, pero kahit idagdag mo yung shipping charges sa price, ang mura pa rin sa US.

    Of course it's cheaper in the US, because aside from Custom duties, shipping costs, and of course profit markup raises costs here...but on the flip side, there's no wait time, and there are a lot of items that are not allowed for normal US citizens like MicroTech knives that are freely sold here in the Philippines.

    Yes it is safe to order via the internet and it is safe to have it shipped there. But there is no assurance that you will get it or would the custom guys not hassle you.

    Just buy from SOE.

    Yes sir, technically anyone with a credit card can buy these knives in the US, however, the laws don't allow the ownership/selling/delivery of automatic knives to civilians in some states and localities.

    For example, the onestopknifeshop has this disclaimer:


    Also here's a summary of US Knife laws:

    ah ok, they prohibit all automatic knives. i thought only microtech knives are illegal for a reason.

    Also some states prohibit auto knives but others allow it.

    Crazy laws. I just cant understand the difference between evil automatic knives and other knives.
