    @Gibo would have owned you that night Dundee. Even with your bloody Leatherman he had a reach advantage and was powered by Waikato. You had been drinking that fucking lolly water piss and were by far the shorter arse. Ha ha ha ha ha
    Dundee, BRADS and Gibo like this.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Thanks mawzer308, yeah it looks like both bayonets and balisongs fall under the same category under the law so hopefully it is granted, and it does look like it is the same form they gave me to fill out at the station. This is the exact one I am hoping to import, a customized Carbon Fibre BRS replicant. It's about $400 so I would hate to have it confiscated and destroyed lol. Name:  image.jpg

    And just wanted to post this really quick, a while back I sent an email to customs just asking what their stance on balisongs was (whether they were completely prohibited or just restricted) and this is what they replied:
    "Hello Martin.



    As long as the butterfly knife has a blade (sharp or dull), you will require a consent to import. These are issued by the New Zealand Police."

    Now I just hope they don't take 6 months to approve or reject my request lol.

    Hi @cphelilife (you really picked a hard spelling login!)

    It's obvious you're not criminally minded but a bona fide collector - what with spending that amount of money on a smart letter opener (-: Good to hear your local AO is as sensible as me. Hope you have a good life in New Zealand. What's happening with your firearms license?

    Hi Cordite, haha yeah, has to do with my other hobby of RC collective pitch helicopters. I have not yet applied, as I have started my uni studies recently and really don't have much cash left (only had just enough for this knife, and this Rep is something I've always wanted), but it is definitely something I'd like to do in the future. For now, I have a .22 airgun that I just use for plinking in the yard, so until then it'll have to do

    Those letters are never good, meanwhile I’m still wondering why a knife like this is considered more dangerous than say, your average $10 kitchen knife haha. ��
