You don't mention what country, but I am assuming this is Europe and not USA as it would be very odd socially to hang out in an airport that long here and could even get you in trouble with TSA if someone decided to notify them. Nonetheless here are some options you can use (at least in the US): Early or Late checkout. In your example you're leaving a bit ...

Basically any hotel will keep the luggage for you - secured - until you pick it up. That might be inconvenient if the hotel is on the other side of town, though.

Here's what the TSA website says for "small swiss army knife": Check Only In general, you are prohibited from traveling with sharp objects in your carry-on baggage; please pack these items in your checked baggage. Scissors with blades smaller than 4 inches, small needles carried for special medical needs, and other sharp objects that do not ...

At the airports they usually have those plastic crates, either big ones to put your big bag when you checking or smaller ones that you put your things into at security check, or both. You can grab some of these and put them upside down, side by side and form an improvised bed out of them. This serves two purposes: 1) You can put all your valuable things ...
