I found this after a brief search. I though blades up to 2.3" were allowed but apparently not.

The TSA briefly entertained the idea in early 2013 but backtracked after resistance.

What happens if my pocket knife doesn't meet the requirements at security?

Don't worry, you won't be arrested or charged with breaking any law. TSA classifies banned items in two different sections, prohibited and unlawful. Prohibited items, such as pocket knives, are items that are completely legal outside of the airport. If you accidentally go through security with your pocket knife, you'll likely be given four options:

  1. Take the item back and check it in your luggage
  2. Give the item to someone who is seeing you off, if they are still at the airport.
  3. Take the item to your car
  4. Mail the item; TSA often has mailing supplies at security.

A ceramic knife, some duct tape, and you're all set to get banned from flying, Plus some new friends, if they find out, lol.


You can get ceramic blades some places that won't show up on an xray... :)
