I went through airport security with keys in my pocket, and with liquids, gels, and aerosols not in a separate bag, but the only thing the TSA screeners wanted to look at was the chainmail vest in my carryon.

hee.

Ya know what frightens me more? They send the pilots through the same screening to get into the secured area...

The TSA is worthless. I'm not surprised. I've been carrying blades on planes for years.

All that stuff didn't make anything more secure, it just gives the impression of security. I noticed that my titanium jewelry doesn't get detected, even if I wear the bigger pieces and many.. which is quite a bit. They don't check peoples pockets for liquids and what not. Sometimes the people running the x-ray stop for things, other times not. It's still and probably always will be very easy for people to bring things through security, because there isn't really any security.

I know what will help! A national ID card!

Titanium isn't a ferrous metal and as such isn't likely to be picked up by a metal detector :)

Which is exactly my point. But terrorists only use ferrous metals it seems.

I own a knife made of hardened plastic (similar to the Boot Blade II on this page: http://www.coldsteel.com/nise.html). It's undetectable by metal detector or x-ray machine. It can't hold much of an edge, but it's more of a stabby kind of knife.

Man, I feel sorry for any 13th century knights who try to take over that plane as you're obviously ready for them!
