A knife is a knife is a knife, if the rules are no knives in the cabin then that's the rule, just because it's only supposed to be used by a crew
member makes very little difference - maybe an incident would occur and that crew member may introduce the knife, loose control of it and now a weapon
has been provided? - An aircraft of that size could have hundreds of people on it in confined area, one whack job can cause panic, lots of people in
confined space is never good.
As regards the program making such a big deal out of it, well that's probably sensationalism, every one knows that a gourmet chef and their knives
are inseparable - so this makes for a challenging and unique angle for, well a cooking show - they gotta keep that kind of show fresh, there are many
cooking programs and they are fighting for ratings in a fairly narrow slice of TV viewers (probably, I don't know the ratings).
