Tools for urban terrorism ™ # 5 Swiss Army Knife

"Neil Flewitt QC, prosecuting, told the jury that Waheed Ali and Mohammed Shakil were making plans to travel to Pakistan, including buying equipment from camping or outdoor shops. Items included a Swiss Army knife ".... BBC ONline report 8th May 2008 of trial of 3 brown men with beards who knew some other brown men with beards.

There is NO inoccent explanation for having one of these lethal and carefully designed tools, innocently disguised as an easily concealed and easily pocketable device for opening beer cans, wine bottles ... why would a brown man with a beard who doesn't drink alcohol have such a thing ?

TOP ADVICE : If you see anyone with one of these, portable lethal weapons of mass destruction, immediately inform the Police. Do not delay, women and children could die a horrible lingering death.

HANDY HINT : Do NOT confuse with the Swiss Army which is something completely different and could not easily be carried.

the knife in that picture is, I believe, the fiendishly named victorinox 'picknicker' model and, with a blade length of a little over 4 inches, well and truly in the offensive weapon category - unless you can convince plod that you have a 'reasonable' excuse for carrying one

which makes for a nice change from all that innocent until proven guilty nonsense and a price worth paying for the virtual extinction of knife-related crime in the UK

size of course isn't everything and a bloke I used to work with got done for carrying a 'waiter's friend' (blade length about half an inch) in his back pocket as he staggered home drunk from work one night - the fact that he actually was a waiter didn't qualify as a reasonable excuse...

The twirly bit looks perfect for mixing up energetic compounds.
The only tricky bit is to retrieve it from the luggage hold mid flight as its been a while since you could carry on these things.
