    CRKs and Airline Travel


    ADVERTISEMENT
    I travel a lot for work. I usually pack a less expensive knife in my checked bag, like one of the cheaper Spydercos. I've never had any problems, but was wondering if having something special like a CRK knife in one's baggage increases the odds of "loss" by the airline or customs, etc. Was wondering what the consensus was here. Do you take your CRK along, or leave it safe at home?

    You shouldn't have any issues with checked baggage. When I travel, I put a SAK in my checked bag.

    Awesome post!

    I am heading down to New Orleans at the end of the month and I'll be grumpy as hell if I can't take a Sebenza.

    If you guys can say how you pack them, that would be great too!

    I would mot pack the CRK at all, i pack a SAK sportsman and a caly for travel in the pockets of a rolled up pair of jeans.

    Leave at home, bring a spydie. That's what I do. I don't think it will make you bag more likely to "disappear" but those things go missing often enough on their own!

    I travel with a sebenza. Roll it in a sock and stuff it in a shoe is my way, so far so good. Checked baggage of course.

    Take the blade out of the handle. Put some tape on the edge for safety, and use a zip tie through the pivot hole to secure it to the inside of your checked bag (most luggages have a rail of some kind). Take the handle and screws and put them in your carry on. If the blade were to go missing, you still have the handles and would only need to buy another blade.

    I've always hesitated to take along a knife I would sorely miss if it somehow disappeared out of my checked luggage. Great to hear some other options, like removing the blade. Not sure I'd do that every time, but good to know.

    I've done this very same thing. Just no zip tie, but sounds cool. No issues!
