    I have a liner less Chokwe I always choose, because it's ultra lite.

    Couple that I don't think have been mentioned and might be worth consideration are the Baby Horn sprint which is still available and the recently released stainless Kopa sprint.

    Spyderco Sage 2 Ti liner lock. I find this to be the perfect knife for dress pants, or jeans for that matter. Excellent EDC knife!

    The Des Horn that I just purchased & received is also a very nice "gentleman's" Spyderco.

    Spyderco Gayle Bradley Air, awesome. The Delica is a classic small EDC.

    Just got my One Eyed Jack on Sunday and I must say it is super nice. My favorite knife to date and should make any gentleman proud.

    My Volpe suits...well, a suit just fine. Nice olive inlays. Great fit and finish. No scary serrations and moderately sized. No william henry good looks but william henry is no spyderco performance wise(or budget).

    I generally keep my “real” knife accessible but a traditional or smaller SAK for such occasions. Maybe sub a roadie, clipit(blade+scissors)or dyad jr if you want to keep it in the family...

    The Mantra is pretty classy but I'm not sure if a flipper fits the gentleman folder definition.

    I'll suggest the Para3 blurple. It is a purple/blue color with highly polished stainless accents, so it doesn't say tactical. It's full flat blade is finished in a very nice satin brushed finish that has bright flash at just the right angle, it's overall look is closer to that of some types of jewelry than a knife per se. If that doesn't say gentleman's knife, I don't know what does. To me, a slip joint says bumpkin's knife, or someone who just doesn't know that technology has advanced.
