    Travel Knives

    Since I had my camera out shooting another knife, I thought I would post my travel knife set. When I go on longer vacations or to someone's house where I know the knives to be really deficient, I usually bring a couple or all of these knives. I had sheaths made for them all because it makes it easier to pack. I just throw all three in a padded knife case along with a friendly note to TSA if flying. Fowler made the sheath for his and Eamon made the other two wooden ones.

    The top knife is a mini-gyuto by Stephan Fowler (175mm in W-2). The second is a 165mm Devin Thomas damascus petty in the twist pattern (I think it is AEB-L and 304). And the third is a sheep's foot parer by Pierre Rodrigue (110mm in CPM154).

    I am sure there are others here who travel with knives.

    These are great knives! The DT is the kind of knife that could be used in a pinch for just about anything.

    I would be scared to travel with knives that nice for fear of sticky fingers and/or overzealous TSA agent.

    You're correct on that. If I take one, I usually take the Devin Thomas because it is a very nice utility blade.

    And as for the fear of losing a nice knife, I used to be concerned about that, but don't think about it much anymore. Not sure why exactly, maybe it was because I hated traveling with Forschners But again, I do leave a note for TSA, and I am also registered in the TSA trusted traveler program, so I hope they 'trust' me

    I usually only bring two knives when I travel (near or far): a Henckels Cermax chef's knife and a Shun 4" parer. I like them both enough to use, but would survive their loss or damage.

    Hmmm.....this topic has been rattling around in my head for a few weeks now...I frequently travel with firearms, so adding a pointy stick isn't much trouble.

    I like the idea of a well-crafted petty as the one thing to take (if you take only one).
    Remember: You're a unique individual...just like everybody else.

    Plus if you lose a knife to the TSA, then you get to replace it!
