    If you can figure out a way and don't want to risk losing something expensive, try a Fury knife. I bought a couple for that purpose for less than $4.00 each. They've lasted for a couple of years without the screws falling out or the blade falling off. I know, cheap stuff, but it's a tradeoff.

    There's a bunch of knives made from non-metal materials, mostly tacticool stuff like the CS grivory knives and the infamous 'CIA letter opener'. There's now way I'd want to travel through an airport with one of those. I think they still show up on X-rays and I'd hate to try explaining that to security. It would probably guarantee a rubber glove being inserted into that most notorious of body cavities.

    Or you can get a Victorinox classic.

    I am too, but I figure if I'm going to be flying twice a week I don't want to mess with checking bags.

    Seems like the best idea is to just buy something cheap and deal with losing it once in a while. Oh well.

    Sorry, I should have been more explicit..
    No evasion of scanners intended, DevilDog is far too smart to attempt that.

    It's a high-quality low-cost alternative.
    Something to keep in mind if you're concerned about having it dissapear in a checked bag, or to mail to yourself at the planned destination.

    I would be a little wary of somebody who admits to carrying such a weapon to attempt to bypass airport security with or without a "US Air Marshal" badge. Sounds like a lot of hot air.
