The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has made some changes to the prohibited items list that are helpful for EDC purposes. They are now allowing (after April 25th 2013) for small knives to be carried in carry-on luggage as long as they meet all of the following requirements:
- The blade must be no more than 2.36 inches or 6 cm in length – from tip to where it meets the handle or hilt
- The blade must be no more than ½ inch in width
- Knives with locking or fixed blades
- Knives with molded grips
- Razors and box cutters
Not great if you want to carry your everyday SOG or Gerber but if you have a extra Swiss Army Knife laying around its better than nothing.
