A novel idea, except they will have you remove the eblt and buckle. They may be TSA, but that very scenario has been thought of and dealt with.

No I'm not saying break the law but the only law that matters is the constitution and I haven't seen anything about that in the constitution since it would be against our 2nd amendment right anyway

That looks to be a carpet knife.......

They have never had me to but that's cause if I do my pants will fall down and I'm not dealing with an embarrassment like that and the 4th amendment is what helps cause we have a right to not be illegally searched and things seized when you force the issue of your rights they can't do much but the air Marshall's will be told to keep an eye on you

Actually you are advocating breaking the law. Whether or not you think this law is just doesn't matter. Get arrested for it and let me know how that works out for you.

Have you ever seen the disclaimers in the airport, on your ticket, in the fine print on the website when you buy your ticket, etc that say something to the effect of. "By entering these premises you agree to submit to any and all searches that may be deemed necessary by the TSA or airport or government personnel."? The 4th amendment becomes null in void the second you pass one of those signs.

Edit: Also, have you noticed that they send everything that you take off through the xray machine? If you've done this and gotten away with it, then someone was asleep because an Xray machine can see a knife behind a beltbuckle.

Getting caught accidently forgetting you have a knife is one thing....deliberatly caught smuggling one on an airplane is another. Good luck with that

The "rebel" here does no such thing. Obviously doesn't fly. At least not since 9/11 and, given this acting-out, I suspect he will never be afforded the opportunity going forward. I think he is a fibber, doesn't understand basic issues, and is confusing what is and isn't a right like most Ron Paul anarchist-indoctrinated Libertarian cult members.

Back to the subject, if you like the idea of a multipurpose tool including having sharp pointy things on the end of your AR in emergency situations...

OKC's 7-1/2" serrated M-10* Tanto (US Army) is at least full tang and a harder edge-holding steel than junk M-9 bayonets. The new "System," as they call it, is a lighter implement and offers wire-cutter tool capability with the hard (M-9 type) sheath. You'll note the cutout in the first half of the blade below vs. the pic of my earlier one above.

For simple value though, a surplus M-7 "pig-sticker" bayonet can't be beat.

*Don't confuse this OKC M-10 with the US M-10; the latter is an improved knife steel (1095 carbon steel) version of the original issue M-9 -- the US M-9 was a cheap stainless bowie-knife shaped pointy prybar and the GI M-10 replacement is a truer bowie-knife bayonet. Either are superior to the M-9, and the OKC M-10 Tanto System is probably one of the best all-around options for a pointy cutting thing on your belt when there's an AR at hand, especially in a bugout situation.

I love my buck 119 special. 35$ on sale it was a steal. I picked one up and I love it! It came razor sharp and feels great, and has a good sheath!
