The TSA Asks That These Items are Left at Home! 

March 14, 2016

comb knife smaller.jpgTSA asks that please leave these items at home!  If an item looks like a real bomb, grenade, mine, etc. it is prohibited!  When these items are found at a checkpoint or in checked baggage, these can cause significant delays because our explosives detection professionals must respond to resolve the alarm.  Even if they are novelty items, you are prohibited from bringing them on board the aircraft.  For example, the comb knife as illustrated was discovered in a carry-on bag at Lexington Airport which could be considered a concealed knife.  Concealed knives can lead to fines and arrests! 

From the offical TSA Blog: 

"Unfortunately these sorts of occurrences are all too frequent which is why we talk about these finds. Sure, it’s great to share the things that our officers are finding, but at the same time, each time we find a dangerous item, the line is slowed down and a passenger that likely had no ill intent ends up with a citation or in some cases is even arrested. The passenger can face a penalty as high as $11,000. This is a friendly reminder to please leave these items at home. Just because we find a prohibited item on an individual does not mean they had bad intentions; that's for the law enforcement officer to decide. In many cases, people simply forgot they had these items."
