Airport officials say Transportation Security Administration agents made some good catches during screenings in the past two weeks at Washington Dulles International Airport.

One item looks like a cross, but it's actually an "artfully concealed" switchblade knife.
Artfully concealed is the term TSA agents use referring to knives that are inside items that would not typically contain knives.

The second catch was a switchblade knife disguised to look like a key.

Both items were voluntarily surrendered by the travelers carrying them.
