Hey, there, wmcilvain! Fellow NoVA resident here (Fairfax County). I feel your pain, man. Around here you have to be super-conscious about when and where and what you can carry. There are more magnetometers per square mile in this city than anywhere on earth.
I've built a collection of small, light Spydies that I use just for this purpose - wearing with suits or office attire when I need a shorter blade. This includes:
- DragonFly (various flavors)
- ManBug (several varieties)
- Baby Goddard
- Walker lightweight
- Urban (several handle materials)
- Squeak (several handle materials)
- Bradley Air
If you want SS scales, you could go with the CoPilot, Spin, or SS Dfly.
