    Just a quick question as I am totally unsure of whether I am allowed to take my Mach 3 turbo razor with me, in my cabin baggage tomorrow aboard a Ryanair flight to Dublin?

    This is what the FAQ at the Ryanair website reads: Link

    So am I allowed to take it in my cabin luggage or not, what do you guys think?

    I assume this is because you are not taking any luggage?

    Have you considered just calling the airline?

    You can take them in your cabin luggage.

    You'll be fine.

    If you are still unsure, take it out of your bag and wave it frantically and maniacally in the face of the cabin crew, demanding they let you into the cockpit. Once in, then ask the captain for his/her opinion.

    I would suggest calling them up, it shte only way you will get a definite answer.

    Maybe ask if you can put it in the hands of the crew or something for the duration of the flight?

    Just called them up, they confirmed that something like a Mach 3 can be taken in cabin luggage. She did ask how many I was taking with me, perhaps that makes a difference? I only need the one, so thats sorted!

    Thanks :)

    Razor blades are banned but you're on about taking a disposable safety razor.

    You should be fine unless the security staff are feeling particularly jobsworth.

    I don't know...I mean I suppose if you had a lot you could use them as pseudo ninja stars but I think taking over an aircraft with them would required some serious Macgyvering on your part.

    :eek: so you can't take anyform of weapon, but can take a safety razer, that you easily dissemble and form a knife out of.

    Bes bets to phone airport, even if you can't hardly a problem. Just buy some disposables when you are over there.

    On a recent work trip to birmingham, flying from belfast international. i had accidentaly left a can of deoderant in my carry on bag, needless to say this was confiscated, however i was allowed to carry a large selection of paint scrapers, filling knifes and a few screw drivers in the same bag.

    Yes. In the last month I've flown to Newcastle once and France twice each time taking hand luggage with WS Quattro blades in my hand luggage.

    You can take them in your cabin bagage. I do every week going through Birmingham airport.

    I've been on 4 flights since the increased security, they've all let me through with a mach 3/fusion with no problem.

    I only ever take hand luggage, they said as long as it's not a 'razer blade', ie the old type, it's fine

    Which it does here :D To be fair it is just a medical course but still looks a little scruffy not having shaved in the morning!
