I bought a twosun TS08 off ebay; 60mm cutting edge, 155mm long, so it's small, heavy, d2 blade, titanium scales, flat grind. It feels like a heavy duty tough folder. It's a flipper. It came from Kowloon. There was a message on it "been opened by Australia Post for inspection by ABF". Little leaflet from ABF inside explaining everything. Mmm, I've got four ganzo's coming soon o_O🤣. It's the first time I've had something inspected - I'm guessing I'm on their "look out list" now, which is understandable. Luckily my tastes are practical not tactical. I do like the knife; waveman would call it a slow flipper 😂, I call it majestic - kind of like a big ship being launched. It has a nice pass through for the frame lock.

mate I like it, a little fatty like my ZT0456 and don't worry about the Border Force note, they sometimes appear and as long as it isn't a seizure notice it's all good.

with folders as long as it isn't assisted or an automatic they should come through OK, gone are the days of the infamous 'flick test' crap.
