I'm flying tomorrow, from London to Japan. With my tickets there is a handy little "Airport travel and security tips" card.

Amongst other things it says:

DO NOT pack the following items in your hand luggage:

Toy/Replica guns (metal or plastic)

Catapults

Household cutlery

Kinves with blades of any length

Razor blades

Tools

Scissors

Tweezers

Hypodermic needles (unless required for medical reasons)

Knitting needles

Darts

Sporting bats

Billiard/snooker or pool cues

I've guessing a bo, bokken or jo looks pretty much like a snooker cue to your average airport security bloke.

Don't risk it: pad 'em, pack 'em, check 'em in.

Kia ora
Ian
