can I bring a cheese slicer (aka cheese plane) in my carry-on bag? It's a domestic flight, if it matters.

By cheese plane, I don't mean a grater - It slice cheese into thin slices. I'll look for a link on amazon.

By domestic flight, I mean internal U.S. flights.

  • Domestic flight in which country? I mentioned an answer for US. – Kuba Aug 10 '17 at 19:18
  • Here's a link to the type of slicer I mean: amazon.com/Wusthof-Cheese-Plane-Gourmet-Black/dp/B0060MCRTY/… – Begonia Aug 10 '17 at 19:29
  • I have seen them for sale in the airport at Amsterdam, in the secure area. But I would personally not take one on a flight if I have to bring it through security. (I was in the position of needing it and found an other way to transport it.) – Willeke Aug 10 '17 at 19:57
  • Within USA, it's TSA, and if it isn't clearly covered by a specific regulation, it's up to the discretion (or bad attitude) of the screener who sees it. I didn't phrase that well. If the screener thinks (or can argue) that it is implied by a vague regulation.... I had a screener demand the mustache scissors from my bag to measure their length. One millimeter under the limit! – WGroleau Aug 10 '17 at 20:14
  • Thank you - this totally answers my question. What a catastrophic ending to the Blogin story. Thanks to all the other responders too. I'd rather not risk losing my super cool norwegian cheese slicer to the whims of a TSA agent!! I'll just mail it later. – Begonia Aug 10 '17 at 20:21

I would not because it has that sharp edge alongside the back of it, which could arguably be similar to a knife.

According to TSA:

In general, you are prohibited from traveling with sharp objects in your carry-on baggage; please pack these items in your checked baggage.

And the Amazon product you listed describes it as

Incredibly sharp and easily maintained

This forum details how one passenger wasn't able to bring his in his carry-on luggage.
