on topic, but not the Blades Canada subject,
I have a few Canadian friends on a different forum that have often imported Chinese knives (OHO budget folders, with frame lock, liner lock, "axis" lock and opened with flipper or thumbstud) They've never had an issue with them for years, but this past first week of February they've had the packages stopped at the border.
The "Notice of Detention" was from CBSA agents, by the member's words:
"The notice advised very briefly that a folding knife was detained under section 101 of the Customs Act and that the goods cannot be imported into Canada until a CBSA officer is satisfied that they comply with the Customs Act etc. etc. Further to that it advised that due to the volume of files it may take 6 to 8 weeks to process the file. It also advised that I was "required to contact the following address concerning the requirements that have to be met
it seems like they're really serious about spoiling the hobby
