Some of my collection
Here are the ones that I could find right now under 3”, always have at least one in my pocket.
Added to my daily carry choice
A trio of tiny stags.
I originally took this one for "Stagurday" to show off my new Wharncliffe mini trapper (I believe it's Case's smallest knife), along with my "raised lettering" peanut, and my mini copperhead.

The GEC Pemberton; possibly one of the best but definitely without any doubt, one of the coolest of smalls.
Just my two cents.
These are my favorite smalls, at 2 3/4". Some have come and some have gone since this photo.
The single blade #14s are still my hands-down favorite smalls...
This little 3" Camillus Half Congress showed up today. Oh ya, it's going to see a ton of pocket time!!!
It literally disappears in the watch pocket unlike any other knife I own. The blades are very thin and slicey and the build quality is very very good. I think it definitely deserves a spot in this thread.
Nice. Half Congress is a very useful pattern, and I greatly prefer 3" smalls over the smaller Peanuts. That extra 1/8" or so makes all the difference in the world. And that classic yellow can't be beat
Thanks. I agree with you, 3" seems to be the perfect blend of small enough to hide in the watch pocket and large enough to be completely usable.
A shapleigh DE made by schrade cut or early walden, both blades are stamped. Original condition with excellent grinds on these small thin blades.
Another small is this stainless cut 7424MT, basically the same knife as the above shapleigh. An unfortunate victim of horrible sharpening but the blades are pretty much all there and it's good to have a useable example of schrades early stainless attempts. Not quite as good as schrade+ steel I might add.
When these tip bolster knives get loose they are very easy to tighten. A couple light taps with a rubber mallet on the ends (which are usually bent out) and they are tight once more.
The twin to the above shapleigh I posted is this shapleigh, in french ivory.
The pen blades. All blades on both knives are really thin and wicked sharp.
These are my remaining boyhood knives I've had since the age of 6 or 7. The Case 042 medium Stockman is my latest edition and it carries nicely in my watch pocket. I forgot how much I loved these little knives so there's more to come. looking forward to the BF's annuale slippy
