If you don’t already know, all weapons are forbidden from being taken into the cabin, whether they are guns, grenades, and yes, even swords and other types of knives. This is obvious bad news for knights, dragon slayers, and warriors who have mastered the blade out there. These policies are all laid out on the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) What Can I Bring? website.

The man was traveling to Sao Paolo, Brazil with his sword, which was safely stowed in a scabbard inside a box. The TSA caught the sword on a security scan, which led to officers taking a closer look, according to USA Today.

Farbstein also posted a photo of it on Twitter, reminding people that all weapons, regardless of value, are prohibited in carry-on luggage.

The man was directed to check the box with the sword and scabbard so it could be transported in the cargo hold. No harm, no foul. It’s unclear why the man was traveling with the sword in the first place.
