    ...it's a ulsa endpin with a stainless steel rod and the typical sharp tip.

    Anybody knows?
    How do cellists do?

    Don't. Put it in your checked luggage.
     
  3. I've just come off the phone to a cellist friend of mine who has travelled to recitals by plane. She says that generally you MUST put the endpin in the hold with the instrument.

    Thanks a lot for the advice.

    Yes, I showed the endpin to the airport security officers and as soon as they saw the sharp tip they said I wouldnt be allowed to take it on board.
