We can legally carry a 3" knife as long as it is not the locking type.
Why would anyone other than a thug carry anything longer.
So I'm a thug? My EDC knife is a little longer than 3" and it locks.
Even my EDC in high school was similar. I'd have to go back to my Boy
Scout knife but even that had a liner lock. I have a bunch of knives
around here but I don't think I could come up with a folder that
Yes I've got some longer lock knives, but I would never dream of
carrying one around with me though.
Otoh, I have rarely been without a knife on my person for the last 60
years or so. The exceptions have been on flights where I know I will be
scrutinized by the TSA goons. I did go to a concert last year where I
had to leave my knife in my saddlebags. I will not be returning to that
venue. The acoustics sucked anyway.
The models with pocket clips have become very popular and judging by the
numbers of clips I see every day I'm not the only person who never
leaves home without a knife.
"Let a man never stir on his road a step
without his weapons of war;
for unsure is the knowing when need shall arise
of a spear on the way without."
It's that I-M253 Y chromosome I carry... All that 'turn the other cheek'
from the White Christ stuff never took.
