    I need to be on a cross-country flight first thing in the morning, and I was wondering if it would be alright to put my rep in my checked luggage? I really don't want it to get confiscated. I am in California by the way.

    Should be okay in checked luggage. Let us know how it goes.

    I am hoping it all goes smooth. The only issue is that it is technically a prohibited item in CA. Prohibited in the sense that it's illegal to carry outside one's home. But maybe since I will be packaging it up, they will let it slide?

    I've flown in and out of CA with a BM Pagan and Hom Specters. Your main concern would be theft, confiscation not so much.

    This is the more probable possibility.

    You can try to have it mailed for the greatest amount of security.

    A TSA baggage checker would be happy to take it from your bag. I always mail or UPS important stuff if possible.

    Past the point now, but as stated before mail it to yourself or put it in a locked box like flying with a firearm.

    I am in Cali and have never had any issues what so ever with balisongs. Just don't carry it on your person and don't bring it in your checked bag- but Im sure you already new that.
