From what I gather, they measure from the handle to the tip of the blade. They don’t just measure cutting edge. In any case you’re at the mercy of the agent and whether or not he hates his job or likes your knife.Interesting that they chose 6cm as the limit. The main blade on a 93mm "large" SAK is 58mm, so a shade under the line.
I live in Minnesota right on the border with them, I've been more times than I can count.
Now that I've answered your question, how about answering mine
Lol, half my wedding party was from Canada.Most Canadians I know who have experience with people from Minnesota will call you brothers, since you generally are similar in terms of culture & speaking : )
The flight attendants union lobbied hard against it. Utter BS that they were able to influence the law and that they were so terrified of knives when radiation or alcoholism will kill most of them, if they die young.Several years ago the US was headed this direction, but it got "reevaluated" and shutdown shortly after it was publicized a bit.
Apparently Canadians, unlike many Americans, feel that gun rights are subordinate to considerations of public safety. Otherwise they would have a powerful gun lobby as well. This is consistent with my characterization of Canadians. But maybe our Canadian friend can weigh in. Sure, I would like to be able to carry a knife on a plane. But we don't have a powerful knife lobby.
it would be cool if we keep this thread focused on flight knife suggestions, (under 6cm / 2.36")
