Attention Fashionistas! Clutches Are Now A Flight Risk?!

Well I think we’ve all had that moment where we’ve dreaded packing for flights, especially whenever carry ons are concerned. Not only are there weight restrictions- but we’re limited with the personal items that we can bring. Liquids are a basic no-no unless under 100Ml, and can fit into a clear plastic bag ( just leave that Evian face spray at home girl!). While nail clippers, you better put that item in your checked luggage- but then again can you imagine someone clipping their toe nails mid flight next to you? Gross!. But there is one item that I wouldn’t have imagined as being considered a flight risk. I was watching the local news, and it showed items that the Canadian border security confinscates often- ranging from the usual liquids, alcohol, meats- etc. But then I saw an item, that anyone of us might not be aware of that can’t go in your carry on- because it’s apparently dangerous! & the Canadian border security will take this item away from you, and they won’t even care about the price tag. 

The item I’m talking about is a simple Clutch! I’ll use the Alexander McQueen clutch as an example because the brand rolls out clutches that have the exact element that makes them fall under Canada’s prohibited items list under section 5 amongst the following items

Blunt objects that could be used to cause serious injury when used to hit, including:

  • Sporting bats

  • Golf clubs, billiard cues, ski poles

  • Hockey sticks, lacrosse sticks

  • Brass knuckles

  • Clubs and batons, such as billy clubs, blackjacks and night sticks

  • Martial arts weapons

    Tp 14628 E Prohibited Items List (canada)

    Can you guess which item this clutch might be classified as in section 5? If you’re out of guesses- I’ll tell you! It’s Brass knuckles! Yep BRASS KNUCKLES. You know those clutches with the top handle that lets you slip your knuckles into them for grip, and has that  sexy femme fatale look- yeah, those are going to have to be put into your checked luggage from now on. Or else..they’ll never be seen again.


Yep these are the brass knuckle bags/ clutches.
