Actually I remember hearing about a really nasty story of someone
already running up against this sort of thing --- the grandmother of a
friend (if I recall correctly) packed a carving knife in her luggage,
and wound up getting detained by airport security.

My apologies for not necessarily being straight on all the details,
here, though; I heard this particular story in the playground at my
elementary school...
