Brooklyn, NY --(Ammoland.com)- The American Knife & Tool Institute (AKTI) is pleased to announce breaking news for all knife owners.

The U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced late this morning that they will allow people to carry small pocket knives on passenger planes.

The American Knife & Tool Institute (AKTI) was instrumental in working with TSA to allow this policy change to happen.

“As the knife and tool industry association, we were very pleased to work with the TSA on these revisions to ease the restrictions for all Americans carrying essential and valuable tools when they travel,” noted Jan Billeb, AKTI Executive Director.

Effective April 25th 2013, the agency will permit knives with blades shorter than 2.4 inches and narrower than 1/2 inch at the widest part. The regulations adopted will be consistent with the international rules.

More information will be available on the AKTI website shortly.
