Kershaw leek folding knife
The Leek series includes some of our most popular knives. And no wonder. Kershaw’s Leeks offer Ken Onion’s distinctive design as well as the SpeedSafe ambidextrous assisted opening system. With SpeedSafe, the user can smoothly and easily deploy the blade with one hand, either left or right. Leeks come in a variety of handle styles, some with technologically advanced coatings for enhanced performance.
For example, the bead-blasted stainless steel handle offers strength and beauty. A handle with black Tungsten DLC coating produces a Leek with a non-reflective surface. For lightweight and a one-of-a-kind look, choose our “smoked” double-anodized aluminum finish in two colors. Or choose our new Pink Leek with it’s fashionable pink anodized aluminum handle, the Rainbow Leek with its titanium oxide coating that produces a highly scratch resistant, brilliant, rainbow finish.
Also new in 2007 is our Random Leek with a modified Tanto blade for cutting power and chromium nitride coating for hardness and corrosion resistance. For ease of carrying, all Leeks include a reversible/removable pocket clip. Features:-SpeedSafe-Frame Lock-Thumb Stud-Pocket Clip Technical Specification:-Steel: Sandvik 13C26 stainless-steel-Handle(more..).

Great knife in appearance, performance and workmanship

I just received this knife so I am in the early stages of using it but felt the need to respond to some of the poor reviews. After three days of use I felt that the clip needed to be in the other direction. I used a T6 screwdriver and changed it without any issues or problems (took around 2 minutes). When retrieving the knife from my pocket, using my third finger I move the safety pin to the open position (the safety pin is closed which prevents accidental opening while in your pocket), and then touch my thumb to the flipper for the fastest opening knife I have ever owned. If you do not have the manual dexterity to perform these operations I do not recommend this knife, or that you should be handling any knife other than the butter knife. To all others, this is a great knife at a great value.
Great knife … dull out of the box, though

This knife is amazingly light and slim.

I was very apprehensive about purchasing this knife. I’ve never owned a Kershaw, only heard of the name, and especially wasn’t sure about the design of the blade. I’ve very happy to report that after carrying only this knife for several weeks and nearly daily use for odds and ends, there have been no issues.
Great knife with some flaws.

A very good American Made knife for a good price

This knife is very nice. From a visual standpoint, it’s simple. Not much going by way of frills, it’s designed to do it’s job and that’s it. As an American, I appreciate the fact that it’s American made, as well as the American flag they put on it. I will now go into detail on different aspects of the knife.
The drop point makes slicing open mundane items like boxes, and plastic packaging a real breeze

Reading the reviews on this knife were really frustrating to me. Every review talks about how sharp it arrives, yet you can get any knife sharp as a razor. I want to know how sharp it stays! So far I’ve opened several packages, cut a few chords, sliced up some paper, etc, and it’s still as razor sharp as it arrived. It seems to hold it’s edge very well. The drop point makes slicing open mundane items like boxes, and plastic packaging a real breeze.
My Personal Favorite EDC

The Kershaw Leek sets the standard in the EDC Market. What I seek out in a Knife, and specifically, an EDC Knife is confidence and security. A knife is only as effective as the user’s ability to secure the knife when not in use and feel confident in its ability to perform when utilized.
Great thin knife

I was looking for a compact knife that was sharp but still had enough meat for me to get a good grip.
could have been perfect

excellent value for a blade that will last a lifetime if taken care of.I have a few Chinese kershaws and like them for the flip assist and low cost.But having an itch for one of the usa made ones made me go to this one.all i can say is wow what a difference.very tight,excellent fit and finish and surgically sharp.I compared this to the Chinese models and you can tell the quality is a notch above.I like this model due to its blade as it has that straight drop blade that i find perfect for cutting stretch wrap and cardboard on a daily basis at my job.the blade is thinner but its darn near perfect for every day lite to medium use.not what kept it from being perfect is the clip.it sits way to high,exposing the top end of it too too much.i love the pocket clips but i cant get over the fact that people can see what i am carrying.Enter the lanyard hole…um too small.i had to Unwind some para cord just to get something small enough to fit though.once i got that tied up i keep the knife in my pocket with the string hanging out.this knife could have been perfect in every way but the clip riding too high and the tiny lanyard hole.dang it!…so close to perfection!

I’ve been mulling over purchasing this knife from Kershaw for some time, in an attempt to not jump on the Kershaw ‘bandwagon’ of popularity considering I’ve owned some high quality knives without having to shell out too much money.. nevertheless, a sale popped up and I pulled the trigger.
