    I take a Victorinox classic and an Opinel 7, both go in the hold on aircraft.
    I had some time to kill in Washington DC before a flight home. I visited two museums and as I had my backpack with me I was asked on both occasions if I had a knife and if so how long was the blade. I had to turf my bag out twice to check on the knives. I understand different state have different knife bye-laws.

    Along the same lines, I visited the Smithsonian in DC and had to leave a very small Buck folder with security and pick it up on the way out. Fast forward one week and I hand the same knife to security in Monticello and the guard declines with a laugh. Visit over, we're in the cafe and there is a visitor with an 18" hunting knife strapped to his belt. So, yes, different rules. ;)
