Country specific Multitool and Knife etc. shopping threads
« on: November 24, 2014, 12:59:11 PM »
Continuing my organising efforts I collected the various City/Country shopping guides, for multitools and knives,  that have been posted during the past few years.

From my experience it is difficult to find country specific information on these topics and some cities/areas/countries offer very little opportunities for, unusual, knife and multitool shopping.

I post this in the General thread as it has both knives and Multitools.

Where there were two or more, the 1st guide/link in the list will be the older one.
These are guides, not Laws or other official documents and countries/shops change with time.
Please post any that I have missed. I am sure there were some regarding Switzerland and possibly the UK and USA..

Glad someone took the effort to search for them all. :hatsoff:

I've been postponing it hoping someone else would do the job. :whistle:

I'll sticky it in a few days. You know no one will read it after it's a sticky. No one ready the stickies. :facepalm:

We have been discussing putting these all together for a few years and finally I decided to do it!

I am sure there may be more shopping threads like this hidden in the forum, waiting for someone to find them.....
What I, sadly, realised was that most of the links to older threads, from other threads, linked to specific posts, rather than the actual whole thread and they did not seem to work anymore..  does this make sense.. ?  :D

Sadly, yes. We used to use a mod called PrettyURLs that while making the thread links look pretty, also doubled up the size of our cache and database and caused the forum to crash a few times. And after we removed it in a forum update, all the links that were posted in the time we were using it got broken. I'll fix the important ones if I can find them.

:D  Thanks for sticking this up, always do like to see this happen.
 

dks, thanks for the effort putting it together :cheers:, I had one drafted but never did finish writing the complete thread.  I still have a few cities/countries pictures ready, but didn't get around to write them up.  :facepalm:

Lets hope that we get more guides as well as updates of the existing ones, so that this thread stays "fresh".

With the current economic climate shops open and close very quickly.
I also expect that several Wenger shops will dissapear soon, as the Wengers are no longer produced under that name.

Here's an update for the Lisbon guide.

A. Coutada, on Pc da Figueira, is no longer in business.

The Victorinox store at the Vasco da Gama shopping center is also apparently no longer there. A hotel clerk was unable to find any listing for it.

Did find a hunting shop that had a number of Victorinox displayed in the window. Didn't go in as it was closed for two weeks. It's located on Pc Dom Joao Camara, near the Rossio railway station.

Had the best luck at Laventura at R. Trindade Coelho 40, in Porto.

Coloswiss I added your post to the Lisbon guide. :salute: I will sent them an email, to see if they have just moved elsewhere.(maybe I will ask one of the Portuguese members to do that)

It is a shame as they were decent shops, that were easy to find. There was another shop near Coutada, but this was a lot more specialised.

What I do notice, from the various updates, is that many of these proper shops are slowly closing down, leaving us with online shopping as the only option.
