Like a court house/post office. Since most of them have a blade, would the authorities consider this the same thing as bringing a Bench Made or Cold Steel in there?

Well, since most gov.org employees ARE tools, I'd think they would allow them into the building. Otherwise, how'd they get any work done? [:P] Really, though, a knife is a knife is a knife. The metal detectors would be set off and you'd have some 'splainin' to do...

Personal experience - these are considered weapons just like a tactical knife. Tools are allowed if you're logged in as a maintenance staff or contractor. As someone else speculated, I guess they think some terrorist will highjack a Federal building and fly it into an airplane.

Depends on the building, and it is largely up to the guard working at the detector. I work in a federal government building and have had no problems carrying my Leatherman, but I've always been required to lock it up when I go into court houses.

Yeah, court houses are anal. My mom likes to do cross stitch and stuff and she had juror duty. They took her tweezers and said she could have them back when she leaves. She got them back in a huge envelope...yup, she's a risk to security in there.

Thanks for the info. I'm looking at a Gerber Multi-Lock (black of course...). Just wanted to make sure.
