Running with Scissors
If you love to bring hand work along when you travel by air, you probably know that scissors with blades less than 4" long are currently permitted in carry-on luggage if you are boarding in the United States. However, other countries may have different regulations and you should check with your airline for guidance. We learned this from an AQ reader, who told us that she lost a very nice pair of small scissors when returning from a trip to Canada. Security regulations in Canada currently do not allow scissors with pointed blades, regardless of the length.
