            There's three good US stores that I'd use:

            BladeHQ: has a fantastic range with great prices, however if you want direct shipping you'll have to use a wire transfer (lots of fees), or otherwise use a package forwarder like Shipito or USGoBuy (I know from others and my own experience that they'll deal with knives no worries.

            KnifeCenter: Very similar to BladeHQ except instead of having to use a wire transfer you have to use their proprietary international checkout which has ludicrous exchange rates and shipping charges, but you can use a package forwarder instead and use their much better US checkout to avoid that.

            Knifeworks: Fantastic prices and good range too I believe. No stupid international shipping fees rubbish except you have to pay minimum ~$50 shipping and I think it's expedited USPS with no other choices. Package forwarding works just like the other two.

            I'm sure there's others as well

              Adventure friends is the Aussie importer of Fallkniven. Good to deal with. Typically similar prices to OS stores.

                +1 on all of the above.

                These guys are easy to deal with too http://www.knivesshipfree.com/ (not free shipping to Aus!)

                  I actually found http://www.cuttingedgeknives.com.au/ was a good place to buy Fallkniven's, mainly for their prices, but they took about 2 weeks to post which can be annoying.

                  There have been a few Fallkniven's come up in the Exchange lately at very reasonable prices (Yes I may have taken advantage of a few of them) - if your patient I'm sure more will be offered for sale by forum members as people seem to collect one user and a spare, the later of which is soon offered for sale.

                    Best places for bark river knives are to main dealers.
                    I have ordered from both and they were great to deal with.
                    http://www.dlttrading.com/has good selection of fallkniven at great prices.
