Legally, locking folders are no worse than fixed-blade knives. You can carry either in a public place if you have a good reason, and you can have either in private places without needing the reason.

As a side note, if its not illegal to own a locking blade, just carry it, another option could be to just ship it to your house prior to flying home.
It's not illegal to carry it if you have a good reason, any bringing it home after a trip abroad would be a good reason. So you don't need to ship it.
