    Incidentally just read that someone was boarding with such. BUT I would not attempt. What good would it do? Just put some blade in your luggage instead of carry on. If you are having only carry on, just get a cheap knife where you touch down. Will serve you for a few days maybe better than this thing. And on board, I see no need/use for such. There are TSA safe "tools" you can carry, if you feel you have to.

    Well, if it were me, I wouldn't test them.

    Leatherman claims that those are TSA compliant.

    I just took a look at the linked LM page. I'd be surprised if a TSA agent didn't object to at least three of them: the two with the rescue hook (PUMP and CAM); and the one with the cork screw (JUICE CS3). Maybe also the RAIL because of that protrusion at the top of the tool?

    I'd hope to be wrong but I don't think I'd volunteer to do the field research to confirm. Unless LM was buying all the air tickets! LOL. Keeping in mind that at any given airport any given TSA agent can at their discretion choose to confiscate the tool...!

    L'chaim!

    The TSA website has pictures of the same knife confiscated at multiple airports.

    $25 for that credit card knife? Insane price.

    That's why I wrote "claims". Plus I don't wanna argue with some TSA agent right before departure. They don't give a flying f¥€k if you miss your flight or whatnot (pun intended). Therefore I just don't have anything on me for boarding.

    Usually when I go to a foreign country, I got my SAK Camping in my luggage and leave the "bigger toys" at home. When I am on a business trip I see the airport, the road (motorway) to the destination, the clients site. The hotel and maybe some restaurant and/or bar with my clients people. Vacations abroad have to be endured with just the Camping. Again, discussions with local authorities (in a language I don't speak) are not to my liking. On my home turf that's different.

    Corkscrew without a blade is allowed in carry on but ice picks are not allowed.

    I question the other 2 items as similar type items have been confiscated and displayed on the TSA page

    I bought 10 of those on Amazon for .99 each.
    My wife flew to Seattle from Ontario CA with it forgotten in her lady's-wallet, but it was detected in Seattle on the return. So, for .99....we just let 'em pitch it!

    Why would anyone spend $25 on that is beyond me.

    I travel every week, and have for 23 years. There is a 60-70 percent chance that the TSA will find and confiscate that knife. If you try travelling with it regularly, there is a 100% chance that they will eventually find it. Don't carry a blade on a plane, period.

    If you carry the Leatherman Style PS (which has no blade and is TSA compliant), or something similar you will be fine.

    And burden them with rules that all people and all items in the same category are equal in threat.
