You shouldn't have any issues shipping a knife to Canada as long as it isn't of a prohibited type. (Push blades, spring-blades, gravity knifes, butterfly knives, etc.) Fixed blades that are obviously knives aren't really restricted for import. Apparently we can actually have a few that are illegal in the US. Cane swords anyone?
Not interested in buying a completed knife, but I may steal your idea to make a few for myself. Making knives and even swords has been something I've wanted to do for awhile, but never got around to setting up a forge. Simply buying the blades and finishing them sounds like a reasonable compromise.
