Re sgians, have a care if you value them. Not long ago I was told by a friend that on the arrival in New York the sgian he had in his suitcase was confiscated and he was not able to re- claim it. It was a family piece of some 120 years at least. No compensation or discussion. He was told - NO Knives Allowed!
