All,
I have always been fascinated about BIG but tiny knives. This one is a NYKC Serpentine pen. The overall length is 2 11/16" with the smaller pen knife @ 1 1/4" in length including tang. The construction is phenomenal. Sweet pick bone scales, super tight blades, with strong snap to boot. But man it so small I could hardly get the blade open.

Would see others examples like this if you em (-: TD

The ZT0900 immediately comes to mind.

Owned one for a long time but finally sold it because it's really too small for me but if you're looking for a "big/little" knife the 0900 certainly qualifies.

Both "big" and "tiny" are somewhat subjective, but I've been carrying my MKM Isonzo with a blade of just over 2" quite a lot lately. I used to consider anything under 3" to be pretty tiny, but I've come to really appreciate the utility and effectiveness of small blades.

I don't have any, but I've seen photos of lockbacks that are slightly smaller than a US dime when closed.
Some even have a sharpened edge.

I bought a Camillus LK6 last week; a little frame locker with a stout, beefy blade, but stopped carrying it because the knife frame was about half an inch too short for my hand.
The tip of the blade would nick my palm, almost every deployment.
Too bad...I really liked that little knife..!
I gave it away to a buddy with smaller hands, and replaced it with a n.o.s. Camillus Dominator, which fits my hand much, much better.
