I'm not really much of a collector so I don't stay up on Japan-only models. Google will probably turn up some info. I'm not aware of any knife import restrictions but I would avoid anything automatic or balisong, just to be sure.
This may very well be the answer. In some interpretations it can be considered a federally restricted item (a butterfly knife) but depending on your locale it may also be perfectly legal to own and/or carry.
That would be interesting to find out. I lived in Taiwan for close to a decade, but that was a long time ago (I left there at the end of 1992). I don't know if there are many collectors in Taiwan, but TBH, I can't really imagine many people in Taiwan actually carrying Spydercos. At least when I was there, nobody I knew even carried a SAK besides me. I'm not saying nobody did, only as far as I knew, and from some of the exclamations of surprise when I would take out and use my SAK. There didn't seem to be much of an EDC knife culture there.timlara wrote: ↑Fri Mar 22, 2019 9:01 amThis would be an interesting topic for Sal to chime in on since I'm curious about whether Spyderco actually sells a lot of knives domestically in Japan or Taiwan, of if the majority of the knives manufactured in those markets are actually just exported and sold elsewhere.
