I like a 6-7" blade, but still relatively compact for a fixed blade like a Jackmandu or Rodent 6. That'd be a wilderness or camping type knife for me, not a urban carry... but do what the hell you want if it is legal.
I'm merely quoting another post to suggest you ensure that no part of the knife/sheath is covered...see bold below. The way you describe it, I'm thinking that with an untucked shirt, there may be a portion of it concealed.

"Except as provided in Chapter 1 (commencing with Section 17700) of Division 2 of Title 2, any person in this state who carries concealed upon the person any dirk or dagger is punishable by imprisonment in a county jail not exceeding one year or imprisonment pursuant to subdivision (h) of Section 1170."

You should be aware of People v Hale, which was a concealed firearms case which essentially held that the concealment of any part of a firearm was illegal. The same rationale would apply to daggers. You could find yourself in trouble if any portion of the dagger were concealed.

You should also be aware, as prior posters have pointed out, that there is a plethora of local ordinances governing the carrying of knifes.

Dear autocorrect, I'm really getting tired of your shirt!
