I've seen the knife slips becoming popular, and I have to admit, I really like them. However, being a slip joint guy, I see the process of pulling the slip out of my pocket, to pull the knife out, and then use the nail nick to open it a bit redundant and time consuming. I can see having a belt pouch, where I can pull the knife out from there, but having the slip in my pocket makes no sense for a knife I plan to use throughout bthe day.

I realize the slips are more intended for protecting the nice traditional knives, which I find to make more sense in the gentleman folder (hate that expression) realm of things.

Your thoughts on slips?

I'd say depends on how much you want to care for your slipjoint's handles--but personally I wouldn't buy a knife I'd need to baby like that. I'd prefer something I could just slip into my coin pocket as that would be a perfect spot for it. I'm in your camp, that extra step of removing the knife from a slip is just seconds I don't want to waste.
