Can you Bring a Razor on a Plane?

Transportation Security Administration, TSA states that there is a lot of confusion about the type of razors you can pack in your carry-on luggage. Let’s find out which razors you can take as carry-on luggage and which you can pack in checked luggage.

Safety and Straight Razors: Safety and straight razor blades are easy to remove. You can take them as carry-on luggage without the blade. The blade should be sheathed or wrapped securely in checked luggage so it is not an injury risk for baggage handlers and inspectors.

Disposable Razors: Disposable razors are allowed in carry-on luggage, including the handle and the cartridges. These razors come in two types; disposable and ones in which you replace the cartridges.
