When in Doubt, Check 'em.It isn't worth the effort.
Last year I flew with a stiletto in my checked luggage to and rom Philadelphia, even recieved a TSA notice that my bag had been searched. it arrived safe and sound. Only thing I carry on the plane with me is my Laptop, Cell Phone and Ipod.

I think I'd play it safe and check them; the TSA gets rather excitable
about some decidedly odd and frequently innocuous things. You *may* be
given the opportunity to put them in an envelope and mail them; some 
airports provide that facility for prohibited items, but I don't know 
that all do, and in any event stamps may not be available, or they may
be out of envelopes, or something else of the sort. 

I hope you have a totally boring and uneventful flight wach way and 
a *marvelous* weekend.
