    Are you serious, you can take a pair of sharp scissors up to 4" and you can't take a Spyderco Bug?

    Number one rule of travel. Take nothing you aren't willing to lose.

    You can take one bic lighter in your carry on as well. Some of the rules are goofy.

    I can understand a lighter. I've read things about smokers having community bins in airports, put one in when you get on the plane, take one out when you get off the plane.

    My wife had a nail file (one of the metal ones with a pointy tip) in her check in luggage on one trip (SFO) and (I assume) TSA took it!!!

    I carry spydies all to the time for travel. And since I live in Indy ( the burbs) you are good to go up to about 4 inches here on a folder.

    This.^^^^

    And, like LC Kid, at one time I traveled a lot. At least twice a week. I learned the #1 rule mentioned by Zatx. After many mishaps (lost luggage, stolen stuff) I started traveling with only a carry on and computer case. Nothing gets checked in. Ever. Too much stuff? Ship it ahead.

    As far as knives go, what I do today is to ship ahead or (my personal favorite) add a trip to a sporting goods or knife store into my agenda. I then ship the knife home after using it for the duration of the trip. Good excuse to get a new knife.

    BTW, one way to ship ahead is to buy a new knife (see how I did that? always looking for some way to "need" a new knife. ) and have it shipped directly from the on-line dealer to the hotel.

    Finally, I always carry a USPS flat rate box, pre-labeled and ready to go to throw the knife in and ship home. The hotel will always handle getting it into the mail for you.

    Best of luck and enjoy your trip!
