I'm heading to SE Asia very soon and naturally have packed my mask, snorkel, some weight and some small fins (i really can't fit freediving ones unfortunately). But i was wondering if anybody had experienced problems with taking a dive knife through customs and airport security (in checked baggage obviously)?

I'd just take a little oceanic 4" blade or some such.

any advice would be appreciated, Thanks in advance
Hi Breathe , and welcome to the forums . :cool:
I have a similar knife attached to my B.C.D. It has gone through a few customs out here (Bankok ; Kuala Lumpur ) without attracting undue attention . I think if it's small and obviously part of your diving equipment you should have no problems .
