I had a (dull blade) batter speared knife, stamped "spread laughter" as a Christmas gift for someone. It would have been confiscated - except I returned to the general area and gave it to someone I know, then went through security again. I am SOOO tired of paranoia - I am just an little old lady who can't walk well. This was a knife less sharp than my finger nails. It is time to return to common sense when processing passengers at an airport.
