So, I ended up having to fly back from Denver due to work. As a result of a doing some quick fixes on my bike during the earlier day, I had a number of 'unusual' things with me when going through the airport security checkpoint. Helmet, jacket, battery tender junior, and of course... a 3.5" butterfly knife.
I had it with me to strip wires, and had accidentally left it in my bag rather than my bike due to a complete oversight. So when I went through they of course found it sitting in the front pocket of my bag, far from hidden. They make me sit down, search my shit, and nearly miss my flight. They were doing their job so I'm not at all pissed at them though.
However, since it's a 3+" blade they were forced to report it, and now I might be getting a rather hefty fine for it. Anyone else had something similar?
