BREAKING NEWS FOR ALL KNIFE OWNERS!

Brooklyn, NY (March 5, 2013) - The American Knife & Tool Institute (AKTI) is pleased
to announce breaking news for all knife owners. The U.S. Transportation Security
Administration (TSA) announced late this morning that they will allow people to
carry small pocket knives on passenger planes.

The American Knife & Tool Institute (AKTI) was instrumental in working with TSA
to allow this policy change to happen. "As the knife and tool industry association,
we were very pleased to work with the TSA on these revisions to ease the restrictions
for all Americans carrying essential and valuable tools when they travel," noted
Jan Billeb, AKTI Executive Director.

Effective April 25th, the agency will permit knives with blades shorter than 2.4
inches and narrower than 1/2 inch at the widest part. The regulations adopted
will be consistent with the international rules.

  • Quote:
A policy change scheduled to go into effect this week that would have allowed passengers to carry small knives, bats, and other sports equipment onto airliners will be delayed, federal officials said Monday.
The delay is necessary to accommodate feedback from an advisory committee made up of aviation industry, consumer, and law enforcement officials, the Transportation Security Administration said in a brief statement. The statement said the delay is temporary, but gave no indication how long it might be.

I don't like flying anyway. I have knee replacements, and lots of metal in my body. I can't walk within two feet of a metal detector or it will go crazy! The security guys always want me to get dang near naked when I go through an air port.
Keep a sharp knife handy.

But, that is good that they are finally getting a little bit more reasonable with knives on airlines.

That's a nice win for AKTI, and the general public. I wonder though. Do you think TSA would flip out if someone tried to bring a kiridashi style knife as part of their carry on?

Som of those blades are small enough to make the measurements, however, they do not look like a SAK.
