Here are the guidelines as emphasized by the Transportation Security Administration:

According to this, you can use plastic, or round-bladed butter knifes. What if the plastic is sharp? No doubt it can be just as deadly as a small switch-blade.

Seriously, look at 2 of the "yes" items:
- Screwdrivers (seven inches or less in length)
- Wrenches and Pliers (seven inches or less in length)

In particular, you could easily kill a person with a screw driver.

I noticed this stuff the other day but didn't post anything on here about it until now.
