Subject: Re: Cutting tools on airlines
Hi Barb,

Good luck in getting your rounded, blunt nosed scissors safely through airport inspections!

I had a mini pair of scissors that was about 2 long. I carried them through airports on many trips. They were from a small sewing kit that NORTHWEST AIRLINES had given to passengers. The quality was not great. The poor little blades were maybe 1 long, dull, dull, dull and had a rounded tip but they served the purpose. You really had to work to cut paper with them!! However, that fact did not impress the overzealous inspection lady. She drew her finger across her throat, made appropriate sound effects and informed me that they could be a very dangerous weapon. I'm glad I hadn't spent any money on them.
