I have travelled with two Leathermans for years. One
is packed in my checked bag but the other one (a
Micra)is normally in my pocket. Until I hit the metal
scanners and then I put in in the bowls opened with
the scissors out. Only once has the item been
questioned. For some reason, no one has condidered the
scissors any threat (very small) and it tends to make
them ignore the other deadly aspects of the tool.
This tip was given to me by a security checkpoint
guard once upon a time. Scissors, small and blunt,
aren't viewed as a threat.
