Flying the Friendly Skies With KNIVES

knife-roll.jpgThe New York Times talks to people who travel with things like scissors and knives as part of their business. One chef, Rey Benavidez, travels between San Francisco and New York four to six times a month. His solution to bring his knives as carry-on: it helps "to wear his chef jacket and be friendly with the T.S.A. employees." In case he does have to check them, he installed GPS tracking chips in his knives in case they get stolen. For example, Ken Onion, a knife maker from Honolulu, had "14 custom knives worth about $40,000" stolen from his luggage in 2006. [NYT]
