We made it. Home safe and sound. The flights and the trip were uneventful, except for some turbulence taking off and landing in Toronto. Thanks for the help gang!!

I have a new idea for the travel knife.

Gerber Superknife Edge, or Gerber EAB.

they both use a utility razor as the knife blade. I think the EAB is better LOOKING, but it takes a small screw to change blades, and the superknife does not.

So, but the knife at home, and take out the blade. No blade, nothing to confiscate.
Arrive at destination, go to any hardware store/walgreens/walmart and buy a utility blade. (Walwart $1.88 for 3 pack)

When going home, remove blade.

If TSA is the same one where the inspector repeatedly asserted "I can't tell if this is empty!" about my mostly-empty but oversized toothpaste tube - this strategy might not work.

"I can't tell if this knife doesn't have a blade!"
And you are not allowed to explain it.

Auto parts stores often have really cheap knives for sale up near the checkout counter. Buy one there and throw it or give it away for the return flight.
