    Now there's a good idea. Removing the thumb stud. If that can be done without damaging the blade it opens all kinds of possibilities.

    I carry a Ka-Bar Mule Folder everyday, its a very sturdy knife, but a bit heavy.

    I love the Buck 110 folder. i know you want one with a clip,but you must get one of these just cause The ole lady has accused me of wearing mine in the sack.

    Seems like a good idea, but I can basically open all my one-handed folders without using the thumb stud/thumb hole, as the blade folds out without much effort, unlike with true two-handers (pun intended lol) that are often hard to open even with the nail groove.

    And the former would be illegal, unfortunately... German law makers: Sure, carry a 5inch fixed blade, but do not even THINK of carrying a 3inch folder that you can open ONE-HANDEDLY, lol

    if you cannot have a folder that can be opened with one hand, you are pretty much limited to the traditional swiss army knife or "gentleman's folder"

    I have a sneaking suspicion the "one handed opening" statute refers to butterfly knives, especially if you are allowed to carry a fixed blade up to 4.5" but not a folder...

    There are quite a few options for fixed blades with less than 4.5" blade length. A few I would highly recommend:

    Benchmade Nim Cub II (3.5" blade)
    Esee Izula/IzulaII 3" blade
    Cold Steel Mini Tac series

    Unfortunately, no. Butterfly knives are another section (forbidden weapons), which includes fist-knives, automatic openers and butterflies. The "one-handed" part of the statute it pretty straight forward, but I have also confirmed my reading with a German police officer. Fixed blades are allowed up to a certain length, and I assume they are because they are harder to conceal than a folder.

    I will look into the fixed knives you posted, thank you!

    What is the standard size for a fixed you can carry? If you can carry a 5 inch that opens a lot of posibilities, I like to stay around what im allowed too on knives. I have a Buck 119 fixed blade I measured under 5.5 but I think the site says its over will have to remeasure with when I get home.

    It's 12cm blade length, so 4.72 inch

    How about a Ka-bar TDI? Small fixed blade easy to conceal and draws fast. Not a pocket clip knife so may not meet your needs.
    I did not catch what your main usage would be.

    Not quite on topic, but WTH: I just received 2 machetes from Kennesaw. They weren't expensive, but I wanted carbon steel so I could re-work them. I'm doing a canoe trip this summer for a month and I figured with the smaller rivers I'm planning, I might need a whacker. I bought a Gerber machete with a saw tooth back, and a 18" kukri. Totally pleased. Quick shipping, reasonably priced, good products. My $.02
