3.5" closed and <6" open.
Perfect for a "gentleman" EDC.
Here's one from Orvis, on sale too!
This is a knockoff, right?
The steel is a dead giveaway, CR uses S35VN
Nice to see this thread back from the depths and some cool knives with it.
I attended the Blade Show earelier this year and picked up a new EDC slipjoint from Master Smith Roger Massey. Just a honey of a knife. A good deal more robust than the little pearl folder that still lives in my briefcase, but still entirely pocketable and portable. And sharp as heck, as a good knife should be.
I guess if we're talking high-end, I'd recommend a Chris Reeve knife. I carry a Sebenza. One of the best things about it, for me, is that it comes in a left handed version (so the thumb stud is placed on the left side of the blade so I can open it with my left hand).
Otherwise, Spyderco knives are ideal EDC. I have a couple Ladybugs, amongst others. The best one of all, for my money, is the Harpie...but you have to be careful. It's a mean-looking knife and I think the blade is longer than 3 inches.
The Buck Prince 503 or Knight 505 are wonderful smaller pocket knives.
Above is the 505 with a 1 7/8" blade and available from http://www.amazon.com/Buck-Knives-505RWS-Knight-Pocket/dp/B000EHUYTQ/ref=pd_bxgy_200_img_2?ie=UTF8&refRID=0A6201J0HMFR2ZSN1Z7G
The 503 looks the same with a 2 1/2" blade: http://www.amazon.com/Buck-Knives-503RWS-Prince-Lockback/dp/B000EI0W06/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1448246374&sr=8-1&keywords=buck+prince
I carried the larger 501 Squire for many years but today carry a pocket clipped Benchmade Mini-Griptillian and a small Victorinox Ambassador (scissors, knife, file, toothpic, and tweezers) in my pocket: http://www.amazon.com/Victorinox-53681-Multipurpose-Tool/dp/B000KSCDAW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1448246835&sr=8-1&keywords=victorinox+ambassador
Factory knives at custom knife prices - at least for their nicer stuff.
