    I just use NZ Post. I fold cardboard over the edge and tip, duct tape it up and put it into a NZ Post plastic bag.

    Funny how NZPost will take knives, but won't take any firearm part including scopes.

    NZ Post are too dumb for words... losing business hand over fist, laying off staff and refusing to take business from legal and safe goods like non explosive firearms parts....

    Its not only that they lose, I try to send everything else by alternative means as well.

    Just looked at NZPost restricted items, and knives are NOT restricted. https://www.nzpost.co.nz/personal/se...stricted-items
