Small Knives Soon Allowed On Planes

Good News for knife owners! For the first time since the 9/11 terror attacks, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will allow small knives onto airplanes as carry-on items.

According to the TSA, passengers will be able to carry-on knives that are less than 2.36 inches long and less than one-half inch wide. Larger knives, and those with locking blades and molding handles, will continue to be prohibited, as will razor blades and box cutters.


The relaxed rules take effect April 25.
