Bhai Ji - Normally, when I travel internationally, I do pack my full-size kirpan in my stowed luggage and I wear a smaller kirpan in full view and I show it to the security personnel with a short explanation. Security is different at different airports in different countries, so just be relaxed and open with the inspectors. Guru Ji will take care of it all for you.
