    I always have a little bit of worry when I ship outside the US, so I'm glad you got it and boy was that shipping fast! Man, now I see that I forgot to put the factory clip back on there for you! Sorry about that brother!

    In the first pic I thought he had sent you some pre-chewed gum... LOL

    My best from the US to here was 4 days door to door.... my worst was approaching 4.5months.

    4 days from US to Australia??? That's got to be the extra-postage-get-to-you-faster option!

    So I thought !!! Express International (about $55US for an average sized knife) generally take about 10 days if Customs are on track. The 4 days was just a USPS First Class (cheap bastard option) package that must have made a perfectly timed run !!! First Class will slow the hell down to here from about 1 November as the Christmas buildup starts.

    I always ship the cheap option when shipping international. Knock on wood, my packages have always made it to their destination. Multiple ships to Canada, Sweden, Israel, and various APOs around the world with no problems!

    Best postal service is USPS First Class International. The only caveat, you have to use their website to process the package shipment, to get full tracking. It's something like that. It's great because that method becomes Express once it enters Canada. 2-3 days travel, typically.

    Worst one for international is USPS Flat Rate Priority International. It only tracks within the US, & takes 15-18 business days ( in my experience ). That's if you even get the bastard.

    Lots of horror stories with customs but both times they have left my parcels alone. I can swap the clip with you or since it does fit my pancake holster I can pay you the difference for it.

    No need to pay, that was my mistake! Hope you enjoy, it's a cutting machine!

    May have purchased a new fixed blade ( seeing what the maker says, might be sold already). I haven't bought a fixed blade since the CDN dollar got cancer.

    Probably jinxed it now........

    EDIT: Knife now bought and paid for. Can't wait to get it :)

    Still half the price of the YETI 20

    Edit to add: the bottle already shipped about 5 minutes after placing the order. Also just realized the bottle will fit inside the cooler according to the specs so I'll be styling at lunch now. Giving away all my little hard coolers to my friends

    There's YT vids on that knife. I considered it overpriced, to be honest. It's 200 CDN for the Guardian 3 and 250 for the Guardian 4. Not sure what that is in the US, @ street value.

    I thought the knife looked uncomfortable, personally. But then I am going from videos and photos. So ymmv, obviously :)

    Edit: Ok this version looks pretty nice, actually lol

    The 7/7 is months away, thankfully.

    And a Tops Tex Creek XL. And a Tops Tahoma. And a BCNW-o1. I should be good for the week.
