TSA To Allow Small Knives


Small Knives Permitted in Carry-on Luggage

Small knives permitted in carry-on luggage must 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


Not Permitted:
  • Knives with locking or fixed blades 
  • Knives with molded grips
  • Razors and box cutters

If a passenger is unsure if an item meets the above requirements, TSA recommends that the item be placed in checked luggage.

The final decision rests with TSA on whether to allow any items through security checkpoints.
