    I carry a folding pocket knife too and the blade is right at 3.5 like you. I don't think we would ever have a problem with that length but you and I both know that you don't always encounter common sense and reason on every interaction with law enforcement.
    When a whole squad will break into a guy's gun safe and take the best guns for themselves, and be caught on video discussing how sweet some of them are and how to make it 'legal' to get into the safe and 'secure them', you best believe that some nice small knives may not be returned.

    But in truth, it's all about intention. If you're a 50 y.o. grandmother and have a knife your 'son' gave you, you'll get a 'dearie, that's a big knife you got there...' and sent on your way. If you're someone 'of interest' the report will say 'had a weapon...' on the report and no mention it was a small SAK with scissors and a toothpick in the handle.

    I'd select based on how well the knife slices cheese and spreads peanut butter and cuts twine, and unless your cheese is trying to escape, you don't need an auto-assisted knife. :)

    I think I'd avoid those knives with skulls on the blade and super-scary pointy points and stuff if I was worried about interdiction.

    Cool

    Depends on what is going on that day as to what knife I carry to do the job at hand.

    All the knives in the photo are legal for a Florida CCW holder to carry concealed.

    The vast majority of the time it is a Cold Steel Voyager (third from bottom) or a Cold Steel Lawman (bottom).

    Strong side clipped in front pants pocket.

    The Benchmade Nim Cub II (bottom right in pic) is carried at 4 o'clock OWB

    Eagle Pro Sunlite Turbo Flashlight is carried at 3 o'clock

    The Ka-Bar TDI is carried at 8 o'clock IWB pistol grip forward

    any one of the folders, though lately i've favored the Benchmade rift (top center) or the kershaw blur zdp-189 (middle left of ka-bar tdi), is clipped in back left pocket.

    (cant carry a firearm so am limited to knives)

    All are concealed except the clip on the folder showing at times

    I carry a well maintained and sharpened Spyderco Harpy. IF I ever have to pull it out, I want at least a chance that the look of it causing a second though of a bad guy, and if not, I want it to be effective, quick and a long time friend that I have opened and closed a few thousand times. Mine is over 20 years old and is as good as new. Cant say enough about my confidence and pleasure of this blade.

    While I am working, I carry a S.W.A.T. 2" blade in my boot, and at all other times I have Gerber Paratrooper 4" blade clipped in my front pocket.

    I used to carry a working folder clipped to my right front pocket, along with my G19 carried AIWB.

    However, after taking the Suarez International 0-5Ft Gunfighting class, I found out there are times when a weapon accessible by either hand is a necessity. And sometimes a knife truly can beat a gun in a fight.

    So I now have added a strictly defensive knife that is on my left-hand side. It is either a Spyderco waved folder, or a Kabar TDI fixed, depending on the state I'm in at the time.

    Speaking for myself, I would rather have a good fixed blade for a back-up than a .380 or .32 in my pocket.

    Maryland has such crazy weapon laws, and of course it's just about impossible to get a CC permit or take a firearm anyplace... But you have to love their knife laws:

    Maryland has no blade length laws as far as a "pen knife" goes.
    Maryland defined a "pen knife" as one that the blade folds into the handle of. There is a bunch of other legal speak in there about NOT being a switchblade as you will get in trouble for carrying one of them.
    As the law is written and case law supports this you may carry a folding knife of any blade length.
    Go buy that pocket machete.

    I carry a S&W M&P Black M.A.G.I.C. Assisted folder with drop point. Here in Indiana everything that is assisted opening is technically illegal. Similar to the legal stuff posted on page 1 of this thread. My father is Chief of Police and pretty much stated that no one cares what kinda blade you're carrying as long as you aren't pulling it on someone as a weapon. In defense would be one thing but he was indicating the use of the knife to mug or initiate an attack.
