Anti-terror airline cutlery?

I suppose we should file this somewhere between "Everything is a Weapon" and "Leave All Blades Behind."

From the Times Online website in the UK:
A British company has produced "anti-terror cutlery" for use on board aircraft.

The knives made by Arthur Price have shortened blades with rounded ends, and the forks have prongs that the company claims are too small to be used as a weapon.

The cutlery has been designed to meet guidelines issued by the Department for Transport.

A spokesman said orders had been taken and BAA, the owner of the UK's biggest airports, was considering the products.
