Is that a sword in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
This 80-year-old woman probably wouldn't be able to answer because she accidentally tried to carry a sword onto an airplane. She didn't realize that her innocent looking cane was actually a secret sword sheath. What's the point of even having a cane sword if you're not gonna use it.
Imagine having the coolest kind of sword (one that looks like a cane) and not even knowing it. What a waste. But apparently, this is a pretty common thing, according to TSA.
“She had no clue it was in there,” said Mark Howell, TSA regional spokesman. "“It happens a lot, actually. People pick them up at a thrift store and the sword isn’t found until we X-ray it.”
