"It's sounds almost harmless but in the wrong hands a credit card knife could be a weapon of mass destruction on a plane," he said.
I believe Oz customs are treating them as a prohibited import as well - supposedly classified as a "concealed weapon" or some such.
Quote"It's sounds almost harmless but in the wrong hands a credit card knife could be a weapon of mass destruction on a plane," he said.Fear is what "takes over a plane", not a knife.If I can persuade the pilot (and copilot, and staff, and all the passengers) that I'm deadly with a set of keys, or a toothpick, then I can take over the plane.Aside from what I can achieve with all the perfectly (currently) legal to fly items - The classier airlines use metal cutlery anyway. But, Australians (or Australian Politicians) have never been anything if not terminally ignorant and alarmist, so by all means - Creditcard knives are the new smallpox. (Having said that - All these people should really know the current laws, and it's not exactly a secret about what you can't take on a plane these days, so whilst I'm not a believer than this is the devils own work, I don't think anyone who got their stuff confiscated has much of a leg to stand on - It wouldn't have killed them to put it in checked baggage, or leave it at home)
Nah boss, if they do that, its a short step to banning long nails(deadly to eyes) and fingers in general.
