Bringing knife to Phils from US restrictions?

I have a friend just asked me if there are any problems with bringing a 6 inch blade buck knife in a sheath in his checked baggage. He is not wanting to carry it or anything, moving here permanently and doesn't want to leave it behind.

I brought a set of chef`s carving knives from the UK with no problems at either end.

I brought a 12 inch bolo back from Philippines in my checked baggage I'm sure your friend would not have an issue.

They sell pocket knives like that in every mall I have seen here.  It is illegal for us to carry them - but they are everywhere here.  Checked bag should be no problem. I brought my Sabitiers with me when I moved.  I did give my sword/dagger collection to my son, but a friend shipped his here.

I bought a large meat cleaver from a vendor at the beach in Subic.

I miss carrying a knife. I used to have a knife and a flashlight in pocket every day at work. Some of the other maintenance guys would say, "Wow, you really have everything." I'd reply, "Wow, you don't?" 

I shipped my Benchmade Mini Ambush, Spyderco Native and RAT-3 here in a BB Box and I thought for sure they'd be "confiscated" but they made it through.

I think that would be the only problem with putting anything, knives included, in checked baggage. It's always possible they will get "lost". But from a security standpoint, knives in checked baggage should be okay.
