    Price? That's nice. The Fairbairn? What's the legality re double edged blades? I understood them to be restricted or something like it

    Double edge blades are not illegal to posses, buy or sell. You just cant import them. Iv done a lot of digging on this subject and am yet to see anything that suggests they are illegal.

    Alright then, if double edged weapons can't be imported how do spearfishers get their kill knives in, spear point and double edged to allow the point to be walked onto the spinal cord?? Often wondered that...

    Id say they bring them in unsharpened on one side and then sharpen after import. Quite legal. Have a look at NZ customs restricted items list on the website.

    I just came through NZ customs last night with a whole box of double edged blades, they seemed very disappointed when I was able to show paperwork for each one-the guy didn't even know what to do with the import forms if that gives you any idea how few people legitimately bring this stuff into the country with them

    Two tenths of sweet fuck all. Sticking pigs? Not that both edges actually need to be sharp for that but it does help.

    Combat knives generally, eg most of what I brought in were bayonets for collectors

    Thats good info, thanks. There is very little that I can find online and the police are not much help. Seems customs dont know anything either.

    It's really not hard, you explain to a arms officer why you feel you should be able to import the restricted item and if they feel it's reasonable they fwd your application up the chain for approval, if it's approved you get a import permit. Then order what you want, once you get tracking details it pays to let customs know as it sure speeds up the process. Or you just bring the item into NZ on your flight and declare it and show the permit
