You really don't need any tips except do NOT ship UPS. They will have an extra huge charge for the receiver. I would use USPS. You will need to fill a small declaration form and place a value on the knife. I would noy make any declarations like "fighting" knife but just "knife". I would try to keep the value down. The receiver may be charged, by customs , a money exchabe rate of about 10% right now plus a sales tax. I would give a 50% value with no price tags or bills inside the package. I have received 100% of the packages shiped to me including several knives. Frank
