Neat little pair of folding scissors. Purchased to take on aeroplane to use with my cross stitch. According to the current rules I should be allowed to take these on the flight with me. However, if they are confiscated, I won't have lost much as they were cheap. In the past I have taken a pair of mini nail clippers on board but I would prefer scissors if I can get away with it. A little cross stitch needle can easily be left in your purse by accident, and would not generally be noticed (after all, they are very small and blunt)!
