Default T.S.A. seized knives for sale?

Forget to leave your Swiss Army Knife at home and got it seized by the T.S.A. while boarding an airplane? Well, apparently the T.S.A. has numerous different seized knives for sale on Ebay at some very decent prices, one-price sale, with excellent photographs of each actual knife.

Is possible to find a discontinued Victorinox red Swiss Army model from 34-years ago, just like that one you used to have that disappeared into the deep water while fishing Lake Winnipesaukee one early morning back in 1988...... hooyah! ..... totally super-duper service from your www.tsa.gov .....

Check out the video of ten best seized items for 2021: #1 best item was a small yellow gas powered chain saw ...... a real chain saw all ready to fell a tree. Sorry, but chainsaws are not allowed on the airplane ..... ha-ha-ha ..... who knew!
.... age-70 & suffering terrible chronic tinnitus ... omg!

'Confiscated and surrendered items will be disposed of.'

Selling them and putting the proceeds towards expenses (or general treasury) is better than spending money to destroy them.

I have forgotten several cheap knives and tossed them in the bin. One knife though, was very nice though and the TSA guy looked as sad as if it was his when I handed it to him before screening and told him I did not have time to check it as luggage.

Default swap?

I carry a common brand of pen knife, and sometimes forget and end up leaving it with TSA. They must collect 100's of these over time. People traveling in the other direction must do the same thing. TSA should just give me a chit for my knife so that I could pick up a similar one when I arrive at my destination. Maybe charge $2 for the extra service. They could avoid the cost of disposal, and I'd be a happier traveler.

My cursory glance at the thread title had it as “TSA sized knives”.

I was wondering what the spec was on them.
