I never saw any point to fixed blades under 6", but that is a matter of taste.

That being said, this general notion of fixed blades being faster than folders is generally false for concealed carry, because concealed carry means under the jacket, and that assumes the jacket is open... (Reaching under the jacket never seemed practical to me) A folder can be in a pocket on the OUTSIDE of a jacket, an immense advantage in access, unless you assume the jacket is always open. An open jacket means that, unless the fixed blade is carried small of the back (which I only rarely found comfortable), the fixed blade is easy to see on the kidney, and only slightly harder to see suspended from a shoulder harness. Even the shoulder harness is really concealed only with an additional loose wool shirt over it, which makes reaching for it slower still, but slightly less so for kidney carry.
