Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! A couple weeks ago I began a household project that needed a sharp knife to open a bunch of packages containing parts. At the start of the project I happened to have this 3 inch 70 year old Pal in my pocket so that's what I began using. I figured I get another "more useful" (read larger) knife whenever I took a break but I never needed anything larger. That little Pal sliced each package like a precision scalpel and I had only used the small blade. The next day upon completion of the project I was so impressed with the performance of that little pocket knife I sought out another small knife to carry for awhile, my Buck 303. After several days of carrying the 3.25 inch Buck I concluded, 1) it was never lacking in cutting ability and 2) what more do I need for everyday urban life? Of course just then a little rosewood Boker half-whittler that I had admired for years becomes available. I didn't have any Bokers in my accumulation, it was NOS, sized just like the ones I was so happy with and at a price I simply could not pass up. I've started this thread with the idea that others would join in expressing their satisfaction with small knives. Small being defined as between 2.5 and 3.25 inches. Come on folks join in and show those little knives in your collections and in proclaiming the joy and satisfaction with the Smalls.
