    To clarify your friend shouldn't be allowed to do this - as these cutters are actually not allowed as carry on (to bring onto the aircraft) because of the razor blades inside... however they can go in your checked luggage... ;)

    Excerpt Per TSA found at: http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/airtrav...rial_1252.shtm

    "circular thread cutters or any cutter with a blade contained inside which cannot go through the checkpoint and must go in your checked baggage."

    Explosive blessings, abundance and inspiration to you all!

    However - according to the TSA - here is the regulation for needlework activities:

    Transporting Knitting Needles & Needlepoint - http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/airtrav...rial_1252.shtm

    Traveling with Special Items

    Photo of knitting needlesKnitting needles are permitted in your carry-on baggage or checked baggage.

    Items needed to pursue a Needlepoint project are permitted in your carry-on baggage or checked baggage with the exception of circular thread cutters or any cutter with a blade contained inside which cannot go through the checkpoint and must go in your checked baggage.

    I'll tell her...I guess she's lucky she hasn't been caught with them. She flies back and forth between Florida and Chicago often.

    Hi,

    Due to my job, I fly on four planes a week. It would be very kind of you to advise your friend her beautiful pendant is not permitted ensuring it isn't taken away on a future trip. TSA works very hard to ensure passenger safety and occassionally some small items are missed, but at some point, they tend to catch them. Several times, I've witnessed frequent flyers having to give up or throw away an item they've 'flown with in carry-on luggage' because a TSA agent was being diligent.
