The exact size limits for carry-on will depend on the airline, but your sword probably exceeds most airlines'. For example: Qantas's maximum dimension for a piece of carry-on luggage on a domestic flight is 115 cm (about 3' 9") Jetstar's is 56 cm (about 1' 10")
The situation is a little complicated and there a few things you must consider. First of all I'm going to tell you about all the legal prospects of this situation and what can happen if then open up your bags and find two packaged phones inside. Take a look at this great answer already posted here. Now, since these are two packaged phones, despite being ...
TL;DR Your bag should be fine to carry based on the picture and the link you posted. The zipper should not be an issue as long as it's easy to open and the material fits inside comfortably. The rules are fairly well defined but vary slightly from place to place. On a general basis, I would recommend carrying a transparent, resealable, plastic bag with a ...
Since it's a prescription ointment, it's not subject to the 100 ml / 3.4 fluid ounces rules anyway.

My advice is to take freeze dried camping foods in your hand luggage. Those are entirely dry and pass without any problems (source: I do this all the time).
I don't know if the TSA also has weight or mass limits but the 3.4-fluid-ounce rule is a volume limit (more-or-less equivalent to 100 ml). In any case, it would seem that the container needs to be smaller than that, by volume. A mass in grams or even in ounces does not directly indicate that.
