Top 5 TSA “Friendly” Knives

The TSA shocked many and angered some (Flight Attendants Union among them) when they announced that beginning April 25th certain knives will be allowed on board domestic and international flights in the United States.

Below are 5 knives we’ve selected that seem to fit the TSA standards of:

  • Blade length under 2.36″
  • Blade height less than 1/2″
  • Non-locking blade
  • Non-molded handle

The following traditional style knives appear to meet the TSA guidelines.
