I bought DH a ninja wallet tool last year for Christmas. He was really pleased and kept it in his wallet.

Without giving it a thought he has flown with it in his wallet several times. However last month, on the way back from Cyprus his hand luggage was flagged up on the routine X-ray, opened, wallet found and wallet tool confiscated. He received a quite stern talking to, and in hindsight we both thought that was fair.

Thought I'd share, as I see these tools mentioned a lot on Christmas threads. They are a great idea, but don't forget it's in your wallet if going on a plane....

Says meets hand luggage requirements on the packaging? Who was wrong then?

Almost - I'm not sure but DH wasn't going to argue with a very stern Customs Officer who was not impressed by the tool in his wallet!

My husband has his taken off him at Manchester Airport last month after flying with it several times. He was most put out!
