Kinda what I thought about CA until I actually left.

Ill take my ceramic knives with me. I only carry a 2 steel blade anyway.

Maybe as a real middle finger, Ill fail to register my .38 when I get there. Oh my, a 4 barrel wheel gun is so deadly and concealable...

I imagine being stabbed with this
would make a heck of a mess.

But there we go as to "why someone would need a plastic knife?"......if they were operating in an environment where a metal knife would be subject to "rust". I don't know of any dive knives that aren't a metal but it is conceivable that one might be in an unfriendly to metal environment.

One other thing to toss on to the table. Others have said why should people have knives that can get past metal detectors. Well, consider the opposite side of the coin of why the government must insist on having metal detectors to search its citizens? Just food for thought.

This reminds me of all the hoopla that came out about the Glock way back when. How it could just whizz by x ray machines without being seen and metal detectors as well. Uh huh. And then it was shown that even the polymer frame showed up plainly on x ray and since it is full of metal parts and the slide barrel etc were steel metal detectors went off on it as well.

A ceramic or polymer knife will still show on an x ray and many of them have metal parts on them as well. And I haven't seen any military or LE types carrying anything but metal knives. I could be wrong but I just haven't seen it myself.
