Can I fly with flatware in my carry on luggage?
Including dinner + butter knives — but not sharp...
You can't in the EU or UK.
gotto go into checked bags.
I think the weight would be too much for your tiny wings...
Ugh — would i be crazy to put silverware in my checked luggage?
Can I bring forks + spoons on the plane?
Not crazy...unless you believe in your heart that they will be stolen...
spoons , i'd think....forks...maybe not.
Can you ship them instead?
Are we talking about things of value? Or just things?
Silver — flatware, candlesticks, a pitcher + bowl, some cups...
I can — I just hadn’t thought that it would be necessary...until I started putting things in my bag and realized — some are pointy! Some are heavy!
I have never mailed anything if value. I worry about it getting lost or stolen...
A few years back, I packed in my carry-on an old wooden jewelry box with stuff of Mom's that was becoming mine, mostly jewelry, but included a sterling youth size fork and knife set that belonged to my grandfather's sister as a child. The blade of the knife was not at all "pointy" but when my bag came out of the xray scanner, 2 TSA guys swooped it up for inspection. When they finally got to the offending piece, they realized their mistake, apologized, but then left the repacking to me.
I wouldn't recommend taking the knives in your carry on, pointy or not.
God help those TSA agents if they had tried to confiscate those pieces.
I could see @Bakersgma going all out ninja on them.
Spoons are fine, forks not.
