    The "molded grip" makes it about worthless. However, I can carry-on a fish bat without any problems. Morons!

    when I came back from Hawaii, I checked my SAK in hold baggage, but hand-carried an 18 inch hardwood crane statue with a beak you would not believe...I bought it as a work of art, not a weapon.

    The govmint doesn`t like to admit that one of the reasons 911 worked is that passengers were told to not fight back. That held out till the people on the plane that crashed in PA found out the game plan from relatives on cel phones and jumped the terrs.

    Lets recap the score:

    1) The govmint, with its immense power and experience, stopped 0 terrorist planes.

    2) The peons, unarmed and ignorant, stopped 1 terrorist plane.

    Looks to me like the peons won by a score of 1 to 0.

    Best unintentional meaning quote here:
    Sure, they can make deadly use of permitted items such as canes, umbrellas, children's toys, and plenty of things that are more nefarious with some simple electronics bought at Brookstone or InMotion than a silly little 2.36" knife.

    Yeah, so I found out this past weekend.

    Woman at the scanner was really proud that she found it buried in my luggage too. Not that I was hiding it, but it had been through security three times and no one said a word.

    I just get all the clap-trap out of my pockets and inside my bag when I'm in the garage so when I get to the belt it makes the process faster. Then I reload my pockets at the gate instead of the security line.

    Drives me nuts standing behind someone who is just learning the rules by trial and error.

    Damn.

    Oh, well. I've carried things more effective than a 2" bladed knife onto flights for years.
