Shake it up
Why don't you shake it up a bit and get some "office equipment" that will work in a self defense situation. Examples:
1.Heavy ass antique stapler
2.Brass paperweight molded to your fist size
4. Lead bottom trash can

Everyone knows that a 3" knife blade can't possibly cut an artery, or reach to heart muscle on a thrust.
The people who make these policies are the higher-ups (or highest ups) at the company -- and it makes you wonder how they can be so friggin' stupid and still get there to the top.
They're either total morons, or they're totally disingenuous about the purpose and possible effectiveness of such a policy to keep anyone safe. Either way, they are despicable.

I'd like to get one. What kind is yours, and is it good, cheap, and is it digital or a tape machine?
And I usually keep a recorder in my pocket that can do up to 10 hours...comes in real handy in meetings.

Here's what I do
I work in technology and am around plenty of un-manly, whining, pasty Joyce Foundation types. And, every place I have worked have rules about knives.
I have a Benchmade NRA Gaucho (3.4 inch blade) clipped on my pocket. It's "Kitchen Cutlery". I use it to cut my food while I'm eating lunch (usually at my desk). Our Kitchen has plenty of giant knives, serrated and big ... when asked about my knife I say I wash it with the dishes every night and it's used for eating food (all of which is true). Even the most schill alarmist has not made an issue about it.
So - you do not have a pocket knife. You have 'Kitchen Cutlery'. Keep it out of sight and nobody will be the wiser for it. They gonna fire you for having a knife where nobody can see it? I bet there are women here with Jennings or Lorcins in their purse but hey - that's private, isn't it?
Same deal ...

I'm sorry.... All I could think of is....
HOLY CRAP HE WORKS WITH REAL LIVE MALL NINJAS... DO THEY CARRY MP5's??
Sorry just what popped in my head. The only thing that would make me follow all of the rules to the letter is that its a government facility. In my increadably limited experiance, ignoring signs on private grounds and gov realestate are 2 very differant things with very differant consequenses.
To those that paid for my freedom,
I WILL NEVER FORGET.
As with all statements I've made and All that I will make, please check your local laws to verify accuracy. (and if i'm wrong let me know as I like to be right in the future) After all I'm just some goofball posting on an internet forum.

Oh, I was going to go to work - cut and stab everyone but - oops, I can't now cause it's against company policy to have the knife I was going to use - had too long a blade. I'll have to think of something else now....
For God, Family and Country!

Get a couple of Boker Sub Comms and carry them, or a Spyderco Scorpius.
If you cant carry more than a 3 inch knife, then carry two sub 3 inch ones. I like both those short blades I just mentioned. They are both easily drawn and opened.
There is also an Emerson folder made for these sorts of situations too.

The building is private, but some of the employees are government, most are contractors. Goverment Security Clearance is required. And I do enter Goverment Facilities on a almost daily basis, which, BTW... I have carried a 4 inch Gerber through the metal detector... well put it in the little basket, gave the basket to the guard... got the basket back, put the knife back in my pocket. No one raised an eyebrow... I've carries a 4 inch knife for the last 7 years in this environment. Only had one co-worker say anything about it (As I was poking the blade into the coin slot of the Coke machine to free a stuck coin)... and he was a new guy that had just assumed you couldn't bring a knife into the place.
