Dangerous Weapon


After flying perhaps a dozen times and passing through security on each occasion, my Victorinox SwissCard quattro fell foul of the Danish security inspectors and the small knife it contained was confiscated. I thought that with a blade less and 3cm long it was allowed, but apparently all bets are off if you can take it out, jam it into its slot a certain way and (in the words of the security inspector) "lock it".

It's pointless arguing with these people, but really, if I did have malevolent intent how on earth would I use a 3cm blade to hold up a flight? I could do more damage hitting someone in the face with my laptop battery.
