TSA officers at Logan airport take away ninja knives from passenger’s carry-on


Officers on Saturday eliminated a set of Naruto ninja knives from a passenger’s bag.

As hundreds traveled out and in of Boston this Memorial Day weekend, one customer left Logan Worldwide Airport on Saturday with no set of ninja knives they packed in a carry-on bag.

The knives, which seem like a part of a prop set from the Japanese manga comedian and anime TV present “Naruto,” had been noticed and eliminated by TSA brokers on Saturday, in accordance with Dan Velez, a spokesperson for TSA New England.

“Knives ought to all the time be positioned in checked baggage solely,” he wrote in a tweet. “#travelfail”

The TSA’s “What Can I Convey?” web site outlines which sharp objects are prohibited, which might be checked, and which might be packed in carry-on baggage.

Knives, except plastic and butter knives, usually are not allowed in carry-on baggage. And when packed in a checked bag, “must be sheathed or securely wrapped to forestall harm to baggage handlers and inspectors.”

And that wasn’t all TSA officers discovered this Memorial Day weekend. On Monday, TSA officers at Connecticut’s Bradley Worldwide Airport reportedly discovered a 75mm inert artillery shell in a passenger’s checked bag, in accordance with Velis.

“Inert or not…artillery shells are a no go!,” he wrote. “#travelfail.”
