Article 13 of the Dutch law Wet wapens en munitie, 's-Gravenhage, 5 juli 1997 states: it is not allowed to make, transform, make for a third party, transfer, have available, carry, transport, import or export an object ... that in so far look like a weapon that it is fit for threat or extortion.

So in the Netherlands you can be arrested for the possession of a piece of soap that does not resemble an iPhone.
