the long metal things are chopsticks (Korean)
i have had my zip-ties and Allen keys confiscated this year.
my diamond stones are too valuable to me to risk, the fire starter got confiscated too.

Why in the world did you have your Allen keys and zip-ties confiscated?? Did they give you a reason?

I finally got my corkscrew, almost like yours, confiscated earlier this year. I'd carried it on at least 20 flights. They ignored the tiny Swiss Army knife I had.

I can understand about the diamond stones.

apparently there is a "no tools" rule . .. they did not give me an explanation, and the goon was reaching towards his holster, so i "hands-up" and handed over my stuff

Ahh...never argue with the guy who's reaching for his gun.

FYI...tools smaller than 7 inches in length are just fine. I just checked the website. :P

Most TSA folks, while nice and overworked, really don't know what can and cannot be brought on a plane.

I can answer that. If the fuckers ever left me sitting on the runway for 2 fucking hours again, and left me tools, i would fuckign take the plane apart from the inside out.
