    I was going to say the Bradley Air or the One Eyed Jack. I saw a One Eyed Jack on one of the Spyderco Facebook groups done up in carbon fiber scales. It looked so nice!

    My Hanan, Positron and Centofante3 would certainly qualify as a "gentleman's" knife. Even my S90V fluted CF Native 5 could qualify. Each is small, non-tactical and has a nice neutral gray/black scale which does not stand out and could be carried in any suit pants pocket, even a tuxedo's.

    Some of my picks for "most gentlemanly" will tic off most of your boxes, but they don't come cheap...

    The Sage 1 is worth looking at.

    Any of the Stainless models are classy. I like the Harpy myself.

    Get a Delica or PM3 and add some smooth G10 or micarta scales with no holes and no clip. Done. Want to be more different get the Wharncliff Delica and do it.

    Already mentioned but I'll second the Chaparral. In CF or Rafir Noble it's a classy looking knife. Still taller than a traditional folder, of course.

    Ti Pingo could work as well. Still available if you look around.

    This. Exceptional fit & finish, and so light. Hard to find now, but worth it.

    I wore a new black suit for my daughter's wedding and carried my CF M4 PM2, the classiest knife I own. That's my idea of a gentleman's knife.

    Both of these were my Immediate thought. The pakkawood looks nice and it’s not as expensive or complicated as buying and installing new scales.

    It's more substantial than my Manix 2 XL!

    Another vote for the Chaparral even though at 3.6 inches, its closed length is slightly greater than what you specified.

    Great, slicy blade. Very nice construction. Comfortable handle even for large hands. Attractive in any scales — I really like the CF/G-10 version.
