And in some cases smaller blades are more appropriate and controllable, not to mention more jurisdiction friendly. I may be biased because the area in which I work has blade length restrictions.
Once the blade reaches a certain length, it almost seems more feasible to just carry and use a fixed blade.
A Manix 2 XL or even a G10 Police 3 which is a little over 4" is still much preferable to me than a fixed blade and still very much more pocketable. The G10 Police 3 carries extremely thin and unobtrusively in a front pocket.....probably better than a Domino from what I can recall from my store visit (I am still waiting on restocking of the G10 Police 3 SE at my local store for purchasing one.......I should have grabbed it after trying it out the first time in store)
A perfect upsized Domino would add about another half inch total blade length while keeping the same base width and thinning out to the same last 1.5" of tip profile. Actually if you place a Domino overtop a Manix 2 XL the Domino is almost exactly the same blade shape except with the Manix 2 XL having slightly more belly near the tip.
A half inch longer Stretch with the improved choil would also be an incredibly great knife IMHO .....with Peel Ply CF checkerboard scales and either ZDP-189 or some new exotic stainless alloy.
