TSA Auctions Off Confiscated Knives

Various American government entities have a lot of stuff they need to sell off, and they often do it through a site called GovDeals, which is kind of an ebay for the federally funded set. An auction took place overnight for a lot of 40 gerber knives. They sold for $301, or $7.50 per knife.

Auctions like this are usually as-is, and this lot of Gerber knives is no different. In fact, some might not be even Gerber-branded at all. From the auction page:

**NAMES OR BRANDS ARE LISTED AS MARKED OR AS THEY MAY APPEAR, WE MAKE NO CLAIMS OF AUTHENTICITY**

After you pay shipping and a 7.5 per cent transaction fee, you'll have 3kg of pocket knives heading to your door. Whoever wins this auction probably has a good reason to buy all these knives, even if it's just to bring some of them onto planes, especially now that's a thing you can do. [GovDeals via DoobyBrain]
