Default Korker question

No I am not asking how to make korkers. I know how. I was wondering what is the average length of your korkers? I usually make mini korkers 2-2.5" long. Well my sister wanted a big korker so I made it 4". She loves it, but I think it's too big. What do you guys think? Do you think maybe I should stick with the smaller korkers for my regular customers.

TIA

I don't make them, but I love the way the bitty korkers look. The larger ones are too big imo. Just my opinion though.

I think its just preferance. Some of my customers prefer the 2 1/2 inch korkers and some prefer 3 1/2 inch korkers. I offer both.

My large are 6" stretched out (so about 3.5" curled)
My smalls are 4" stretched out (so about 2.5" curled)

I also make 'micro' korkers

I use 3" pieces. Everyone seems to like that size best. Not too big and not too small.

I do them at 2.5 cut. I don't like them any bigger than that but I do smaller ones sometimes.
