Blade length

2048 12
Just wondering where blade length is measured from on a knife. Is it the actual sharpened area of the blade or is it the actual metal length from tip end to hinge end.

On a folder it's measured from the tip to the hinge end. Having worked airport security in the past I can tell you most screeners use the palm of the hand as a standard of measure. If the blade is smaller than the screeners palm then it's okay to go on board. If not it gets checked. Box Cutters just recently returned to the "okay to fly" lists.
