Slingshot and rocks. Was deliberate, was a child and the TSA woman gave it back to me when no one was looking .

Before taking the elevator up the Eiffel Tower security confiscated my corkscrew, but in the gift shop on the top of the Eiffel Tower they were selling corkscrews.

2 bottles of banana liquor TLV.

When learning in yeshivah, luggage was overweight, took out the 2 bottles of liquor placed them in a bag of dirty laundry (!) I had with me, by security I put the bag of laundry under my sisters stroller (she happened to have been on my flight) and at the gate they checked everyone's bags for liquid, and they asked me to show them my bag (of dirty laundry...) they quickly let me through

I see that I didn't write what the item was. It was a challah knife.
I took a challah knife into the Kosel past the security checkpoint. It was the wooden ones that are in the challah board, may have been wrapped as well. I had gone straight from meah shearim to the Kosel and was carrying the gifts I purchased with me...

Na, the TSA just knows that decorative challah knives are about as useless as toy guns

I always wonder how hard it could be to sharpen the edges of these metal credit cards to be sharp like a knife.

Brought pocket knives countless times (by mistake), only had it confiscated once, when I put it once in the small tsa pre bin.

A bottle of water. They took forever to look into my bag - to see what triggered it.
Almost missed my connecting flight in Heatherow to Israel.

My friend was stopped once for having multiple knives on him. He did pass by before with them many times.
