Air travel with knives?
I''ve taken the bulk of my entire toolbox back and forth to Maine from the Virgin Islands a couple of times, including several knives (rigging, work, etc.) grinders, sanders and most anything you can imagine for sailing and doing boatwork. The only problem I''ve had is a near-fistfight on the tarmack on Puerto Rico after carefully watching out windows (via Pan Am) from Bangor, Maine, to San Juan, with a stop or two in between, for my two coolers full of live lobsters. I watched them loaded onto a Cape Air flight we were boarding. Then, as we approached the plane, they yanked both coolers and set them aside so a Cape Air employee could catch a free ride to St. Thomas. I wanted my luggage, wife, anything left behind and got nothing but threatened (by Cape Air employees and thumb-in-rib wife). They came in on the next flight, but I never left the counter in St. Thomas until they arrived. Mmmmmmmmmm. Time to head north again, soon. And take the nonstop from Boston.
