i am sure it is okay to take it on as your carry-on ... i just flew an intercontinental flight in june and i had my in my checked-in luggage. they never gave me any problems for being in there and the case didn't even have a scratch on it. i also had the case sitting on top so i am sure it took somewhat of a beating.
kuzi16:i took mine when i went to vegas. i did not take my cutter or lighter. the shops down there are very service oriented if you buy there. they will cut for you.( i recommend the davidoff shops, best prices though they still over charge.) If you bring your own sticks, just cut them before you go. i would hate to see a good cigar cutter taken at security. lighters and matches are all over the place. leave the good stuff at home.
claritysaints:I am going to traveling to Las Vegas soon. I was wondering if taking a Herf-A-Dor on the plane was ok, and if it is better for me to keep in carry-on or in luggage? (For going through security clearance)
