I usually carry both a Benchmade Barrage one hander and a slippie or two in my left or watch pocket. One hander is nice if
you have to cut a seat belt or a line while in the boat FAST! I do feel that the slip joints have more soul than the locker
and I do a lot of whittling with mine. Would hate to lose one of them.
If I lost the assisted locker I would not be happy over the financial loss but would just get another.
