Welcome Home CHATS HAVE RETURNED

Measures that may be brought in later in the year mean that although we will be able to buy knives online they will need to be collected from the retailer personally?

Now I haven't bought a knife from Greg at TSA for a while mostly because I have been spending my money on straight razors. Also, the £ has dropped 20% since Brexit was announced which makes purchases from the States just too expensive with shipping and taxes.

This proposed legislation, however, means that I would have to travel to Detroit Lakes, so that Greg could check that I am over 18, and pick up my purchases in person. That could make the next GEC rather too much trouble, I guess that is the point!

John,

I do like Queen knives ..but.. as you stated, broken springs have no easy fix.

Short of having a ready replacement spring .........

Thanks for the offer though, John !

.

Oh .. 'n thanks for the "heads up" on the Brisa update.

.

Enjoy,

Dale

"I do have a few broken knives, mostly Queen that I was thinking you may like to have to practice your repair skills on. You would be welcome to them as long as you don't send them back to me, I am not looking for repair service just thought you may like to play with them. Don't know if you would be able to do much with them as they are all broken back springs which must be a tricky problem. Anyway if you need a project just let me know."

WOW

In contrast to your dilemma .. I just found a switchblade available on Amazon.

I'll bet that doesn't remain available for long ... not from Amazon anyway.

Those have been illegal here for as long as I can remember Dale.

Even though they are banned here people still find a way to stab each other, kitchen knives mostly I guess.

Automatic (switchblade) knives are also illegal for sale on Amazon .. anywhere / everywhere.

Hence,

I was amazed to see one openly listed on Amazon.
