hello, i'm a beginner with this thing. now, i pulled the trigger and bought online through e-bay and paypal. as i understand it, paypal would have paid for the item and shipping. but the UPS will not be sent to my house. rather, i will pick up the package in the post office, where it will be opened, inspected, and assessed.
anyone here have any experience regarding duties, customs regulations, etc? the product i purchased is a pocket knife (rather expensive.) i simply read the general customs regulations which says that importation of pocket knives is neither prohibited nor restricted.
