    Whoops, in the pole I said folder instead of blade. If a mod can change that it would be appreciated. Sorry, only had one cup of coffee this morning.

    3" delica.

    I voted over 4", but truth be told it's just under 4". Only other option was under 3" which it is not. SOG Pentagon Elite

    I carry a TDI and one of a bunch of folders I have. I'll be getting an emerson soon, and that will be my primary folder...the TDI is I think 2.5" fully serrated, and the emerson is just under 4. Most of my folders are just under 4 also.

    Mine is over 3 but under 4. Where is that option?
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    I, also, am in the "over 3 inch but under 4 inch" category. I carry a 3.5 inch Griptillian as well as a 2 inch Gerber Mini F.A.S.T.

    3-inch CRKT M16-10KZ. A decent blade for a great price. It's also the maximum length allowed in my home state before it's "naughty" to carry it.

    No option for 4" exactly.
    Which is TN legal length, and a common length option for many many knives.
    Poor poll format.

    Sorry that everyone does not fit. Just looking for generalities and it looks like they are there.

    Well, since anyone who carries a 3 or 4 inch blade doesn't fit, that probably only negates about 40% of commonly carried knives.

    I actually carry TWO knives daily that don't fit your poll: a 4" and a 3".

    Just sayin....

    Either a 3 inch Delica or Native.
