The TSA has tried to spell out exactly what is and isn’t allowed in your carry on bag at the airport. There’s a website with very detailed and clear instructions item by item. You can even tweet @AskTSA with a picture of the item in question so that you can get an indication if it is allowed or not.
So, I just love this picture posted on Twitter of a machete in a trash can amidst water bottles and food items at a security check point at an airport.

“Sir, can you please empty your pockets, take out your laptop, and unsheathe that gigantic machete strapped to your back?”
