“During 2011, I traveled extensively (mostly by air) throughout the African Continent, as well as in Greece, Germany, Italy, France, the UK, and points in Eastern Europe.

Throughout it all, I had my Cold-Steel Sharkie in my carry-on bag. Never a problem! One airport policeman in Germany asked me about it. I explained that my hands are arthritic, and thus, for me, small pens are unusable. He was satisfied with that explanation, and I went my way without further interruption!”

Comment: The “Sharkie,” now called the “Pocket Shark,” is unregulated, so far as I know. I carry a copy all the time.
