The TSA has announced that it will be allowing some small pocket knives aboard US flights from the 25th APril 2013.
The TSA said on its website, "The decision to permit certain items in carry-on bags was made as part of TSA's overall risk-based security approach and aligns TSA with International Civil Aviation Organization Standards and our European counterparts."
The small knives will be permitted in all carry on luggage and must meet all of the following requirements:
The blade must be no more than 2.36 inches or 6 cm in length – from tip to where it meets the handle or hilt
The blade must be no more than ½ inch in width.
The TSA said fixed blades, razors and box cutters will still be forbidden.
