You know, as much as I hate pointless security theatre like the next guy, something about allowing knives on one's person on a flight just seems....
Not a good idea.
Ironically maybe the national security establishment in all their fear of bombings realised one of the few things that don't blow up are knives. Small containers of liquid are still menacing weapons, watch out bottle-feeding new mothers! XD

Have you ever tried to open a packet of airline peanuts?
On a more serious note, in an emergency situation on a plane, something like a Swiss Army knife or multi-tool could be a potentially life saving item. Cutting people free from jammed seatbelts for example.

So, you can carry knives but not deodorant? That's not going to end well for those with poor personal hygiene...
