TSA lifts ban on small knives

From April 25, the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will allow airline passengers to carry small knives such as pocket knives, novelty bats and some sporting sticks in carry-on baggage.
The new rules bring US airport carry-on security rules in line with European Union rules.
TSA administrator John Pistole said that allowing these items onboard would align the US with ICAO and European standards and allow screeners to focus on the highest priority threat—non-metallic explosive devices.
Razor blades and box cutters will still be banned from carry-on baggage.
