1. My EDC knife blade lengths range from 2 1/8 to 4.25 inches.
2. Everyday, mundane taks, such as cutting string, plastic, opening mail, cutting boxes, scraping caked-up grass out of the lawn mower, cutting line for a weed-wacker, sharpening pencils, cutting PVC pipe, pruning trees and other yard trimming work, occasionally harvesting game, and if lives depend on it I'll use my knife for self-defense as a last option.
3. I've carried at least a small pocket knife everywhere (including to school) since about age 7.
Sal, keep us posted on the progress of the case, if possible. And let us know if you need any more help.
