The only knives I have tip up are my waved folders and ones that do not have tip-down carry options like my Benchmades. I prefer tip up for non-waved knives.

This right here :) Cool factor...... possibly intimidation factor I guess, but I think a spyder-dropped fully serrated Endura would have the same intimidation factor. Honestly, its the cool factor. Id really like to say its more lol, but I can open up a Spyderco pretty darn quick with just one hand...

It looks like the Resilience could be a poor man's alternative to the military. I'm very anxious to pick one up.

Here's my 2 cents: To deploy a non-stiletto type auto, it takes 3 steps in order to be sure that it won't close on your fingers: 1) disable the safety 2) push the button 3) enable the safety (to prevent the button from being accidentally pushed) Seems like a lot of steps to me.
