For security reasons it is not allowed in hand luggage peaked or sharp items which could be used as weapon (knives, all kind of scissor, cork-screw ).

New EU Security Rules in the Airports: a brief guide to help you
The new rules apply from Monday, 6 November 2006 at all airports in the EU and in Norway, Ireland and Switzerland until further notice. 

In order to protect passengers from the new terrorist threat posed by explosives in a liquid form, the European Union has adopted new safety rules that limit the amount of liquid substances that can be carried beyond the airport security checkpoints. Each passenger and its hand luggage will be checked to identify, in addition to other items already prohibited by current legislation, any liquid substances. The new rules put no limit to the liquid substances that can be purchased at stores located in areas beyond the control points or aboard the aircraft used by airlines belonging to the European Union. t is best not to open the sealed envelopes in which these products will be packaged and retain their proof of purchase before reaching the final destination. Otherwise, by passing through any intermediate airports, the purchased liquids could be seized at security checks.

While there are no restrictions on liquids placed in the luggage compartment, in hand luggage, subjected to airport security checks, the permitted liquids are instead in small quantities. They should be contained in containers each of a maximum capacity of 100 milliliters (1/10 liter) or equivalent (eg 100 grams). The containers in question must be placed in a transparent, easily retractable plastic bag with a capacity not exceeding 1 liter (approximately 18 x 20 cm). For each passenger (including infants), only one plastic bag of the above dimensions will be allowed (see illustration).

• water and other beverages, soups, syrups
• creams, lotions and oils
• perfumes
• sprays
• Gel, including those for hair and shower
• Containers under pressure, including shaving foam, other foams and deodorants
• Pasta substances, including toothpaste
• mixtures of liquids and solids, mascara, any other product of similar consistency.
They can be transported outside the bag, and are not subject to volume restrictions, medicines and liquids prescribed for dietetic purposes, such as baby foods. You may need to provide proof of the actual necessity and authenticity of such articles.

At the airport
In order to facilitate the checks it is mandatory:
• Provide safety controls to all liquids transported as hand luggage so that they are examined;
• remove jacket and overcoat; they will be subjected to inspection separately;
• Take out handheld laptops and other large and large electrical and electronic devices: they will be inspected separately from hand luggage.
