Here are a few tips for understanding TSA Knife rules and traveling with knives on airplanes.
In 2013, the Transportation Security Administration announced it would allow certain knives in carry-on bags. However, that was repealed in June of 2013. Now no knives or blades of any sort are permitted in carry-on bags.
If you are going to be traveling via airplane with knives they must be put into checked bags. Checked bags are subject to inspection so do not pack any knives that you would not want stolen or lost, this happens way too much at airports, not only with knives but with other personal objects.
You need to know the knife laws of your destination, before you pack them for your trip. Knife laws can vary widely. No knife is guaranteed to be legal everywhere, however a small, non-locking knife that opens with two hand is most likely legal everywhere.
