comment Bringing a camping knife to Japan
I think some countries do not allow it even if it's in your suitcase. For example when coming in to Australia you cannot bring a blow pipe in as it is deemed a weapon.

It can vary greatly by country though, some countries do not have meters in their taxies and fares are usually negotiated ahead of time.
