You can carry pretty much whatever you want actually. There are no length restrictions, just restrictions on some sorts of folding knives (switchblades, etc), but you can't buy them, let alone carry them, so anything you get in a store should be OK.
If you are so inclined, you can even get something huge like an M9 Bayonet... it's completely within the law to walk around with, with one caveat...
Intent is the key. As I said, you can carry whatever you want, but you can't be carrying it for the purpose of self defence. As the previous poster said, if you're carrying the knife to open Amazon parcels, that's completely OK, and if someone attacks you, you're allowed to use your Amazon parcel knife to attack them. So if you are ever questioned about carrying it, say it is not for self defence, it's just a tool for opening packages or whatever.
This intent law does not only apply to knives, if you are carrying most any kind of weapon for self defence it is illegal. If you carry a baseball bat, make sure you have a glove and a ball with you so you can argue you were going to play baseball! (But that might be a little harder to argue your way out of...)
Either way, better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

the only knives I own would be illegal to carry in England, thankfully..
I've got one of these which is my favourite for looking menacing and opening parcels.. just counter strike things
I don't get why these people on /r/edc seem to need 3 knives carried daily, like what are they doing with them?
