    I guess the flipper would win out for the "cool" factor.

    I had a Darrel Ralph flipper that was really cool, but too big overall so I sold it. I've got a few studs, and they are good, and a button knife, it is better. In FL if you have a weapons permit button knives are legal. Some states are LEO only.
    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    I've got some of all 3 Mr. Clean. I like them all. Spyderco, CRKT, Kershaw, Benchmade, Buck etc. etc. They all serve a purpose.

    From the few button knives that I have seen they are to complicated or possibly finicky. Other than the cool factor if it doesn't deploy when needed what is the use?

    I have had a liner lock that wouldn't close after digging in the dirt for a root. I know that may sound weird but that is my EDC use. I am leaning towards buying a frame lock for a EDC. With a thumb stud.

    Say it wasn't in your plan for the day and while walking through the woods you spot some Ginseng.....

    That is a nice size plant you say to yourself and it will fix all of my ills.

    I have no shovel and of course I could carve one out of a branch but why not just use my knife?????

    even though my EDC has a stud post, the Spyderco hole is really nice.
