        You should not have a problem, just be prepared for them to search the box/bag/

          Ugh, everything is considered a weapon these days... soon we won't be able to bring books on board because we could papercut someone to death!

          Are you nervous about checking them?

                good to know Ann. I was wondering the same thing. I wanted to carry them on, but then worried about the whole weapon thing too. I even sent an email to TSA with this same question. They basically said that it is up to the TSA worker at the airport....lot of help that answer was!

                  i have never ever heard of or seen anyone have a problem with glass - i mean, you can buy it all over the airport once you're past security. only plastic knives though! lol i find it all so silly, if you can't tell!

                      I bought several packs from Bed Bath and Beyond, wrapped the packs in bubble wrap and put in checked luggage. I did not have ANY problems with TSA. Since they were protected by bubble wrap, the original packaging from BB&B, and some clothing, they were fine.
