Getting through a TSA checkpoint can sometimes be a more painful experience then visiting your proctology doctor.  Okay, maybe it’s not that bad, but who knows what those backscatter x-ray machines are really doing to our insides.  If anything, it’s just another reason to not stand in front of your microwave as its circular glass plate whirls your food around.  It’s also a deterrent to anyone looking to bring a weapon lodged into a (we won’t name it) cavity, though the gun tampon is probably well into production thanks to the engineering skills of the Taliban’s mad scientist group.  An alternative you ask?

Check out this Belt Knife.  Hidden in the buckle is a 440 Stainless Steel blade that looks to be about 4-inches in length.  Yes, the belt portion, which measures 53-inches, leaves something to be desired, but this knife’s clandestine like ways gives it an allure a regular knife simply can’t glean.  That all being said, we’d never suggest anyone try to smuggle one of these onto a plane.  Instead, you should wear it when you’re visting foreign locals or places that you might feel endangered, such as a cock fight or an unsanctioned cage match.

True Swords sells it for $20.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
