Rather than alarm any TSA staffer with undetectable or questionable items in my carry-on, I urge only putting the Corkscrew in checked luggage. Having been a “road-warrior” with airline miles accumulating to the hundreds-of-thousands, the extra 22-minute wait for checked baggage that holds any oddities is valuable when it allows TSA agents to more calmly do their “thankless” work of detecting risks and anti-social behavior.
Having only a modest study of metallurgy and the molecular (crystalline) patterns needing respectful care to maintain their integrity, I would never, ever uncoil or reverse coil the Corkscrew and expect it to retain the properties it was designed to serve. –Just a bit of old school perspective —
