The small-size "classic" Swiss-Army-knife ( will also make it through the WTMD in a pocket without alarming.

Small pen-knives are not a threat to aircraft. That said, if you happen to take one with you--accidentally or otherwise--don't make it visible in the airport/aircraft or someone is liable to freak out.
