Here's the thing about these knives: the steel is of a good quality, the locking mechanisms are decent, the handles are acceptable, and the price is tough to beat. In short, at this price point you won't find better quality.
For those who are uncomfortable with sharpening their own knives, the serrated blades will probably treat you better. For those who are uncomfortable or unsure about purchasing the larger size, keep in mind that it's designed to sit closed in your pocket. Chances are good that you'll hardly notice the smaller one is there (that's what she said), but you may feel that a 5.25" closed knife is a bit much to carry in the pocket.
It is interesting you say that. In some states, it is illegal to even openly carry a knife measuring more than 3.25". Of course, other states are even more strict about it stating a blade of 3" or more, and then there's Florida where it's pretty much carry whatever you want so long as it is not used for illicit purposes (or illegally concealed).

You Are joking, right?
capital offense n. any criminal charge which is punishable by the death penalty, called "capital" since the defendant could lose his/her head (Latin for caput). Crimes punishable by death vary from state to state and country to country. In some American states these offenses may include first degree murder (premeditated), murder with special circumstances (such as intentional, multiple, involved with another crime, with guns, of a police officer, or a repeat offense), and terrible act with additional bodily harm, and the federal crime of treason. A charge of a capital offense usually means no bail will be allowed.
