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 thin knife
I was looking for a compact knife that was sharp but still had enough meat for me to get a good grip.
It still looks nice and is actually easier to wrap
I bought this as a gift. It came in a kershaw box, not the blister pack thing you see them in at sporting goods stores. It still looks nice and is actually easier to wrap, so that’s cool.
Great EDC Knife With One Drawback
I was looking for an EDC knife a little smaller and less intimidating than my SpyderCo Police or Cold Steel Recon. This is the right size and is thinner than most of the types with synthetic scales. The assisted opening is impressive. I don’t know the legal technicalities but as far as I’m concerned it functionally the same as a classic Italian switchblade I had decades ago.
they’re a good value. The quality is top notch with two …
Kershaw knifes are designed to be functional, not displayed. To this end, they’re a good value. The quality is top notch with two exceptions. One, the assisted opening function varies between models & even individual knives with the larger knives being more sure. I own all the models from the Chive to the Shallot & the one hand opening feature works about 80% to 90% on all my knives with no hand movement. (The Shallot I own has never failed) With a little flip of my wrist, this goes to 100% even with the Chive. The second problem is a bit more concerning. As mentioned by other reviewers, the closed blade lock is terrible. It’s a little plastic pin that is easily broken off. I’m sure they use plastic to protect the edge of the blade but if you forget to take it off before you open the knife or it should slide to the locked position when you close it, it is not going to last long.
Very sharp blade
This knife is just the right length for an EDC, and it shipped with a razor edge. The blade lock is also very useful to put my mind at ease each time I go to stand or sit…
A very nice everyday carry!
I am very impressed with the quality of pocket knife. It fits in the pocket nicely without pocket drag. It’s light but made sturdy. The factory edge is sharp and has a needle tip. The blade flips out with little effort and the locking mechanism in the closed position is comfortable to use. I’m not a fan of liner locks but I can close this knife with one hand with a little practice. I own quite a few pocket knifes and this one has become my everyday carry. You can’t go wrong buying this knife.
Kershaw Ken Onion is no lemon!
These are the best thing since drive-thru burgers……
So very smooth
One person found this helpful.
This is the 4th leek I’ve purchased to give as a Christmas gift in the last 2 years. The other 3 were serrated, but this one is for someone who is a bit of an “indoor” person. It’s very discreet, which is great for someone who carries it at work or as an EDC. Extremely smooth opening action. Compared to my Kershaw Shallot, it opens much smoother and quicker (though I attribute that to the weight and size of the blade, it being smaller and all). All in all, great knife. 5/5 highly recommend.
Very Sharp Small Knife
I really like the Leek.
My absolute favorite.
This is my favorite pocket knife hands down. It should be known that I really only use it for opening boxes and packaging, but I open alot of dang boxes during a day. Its the nature of my job. The other main task is cutting zip ties. Having a NON serated blade is great for easy sharpening. Good quality steel keeps the edge. Super thin and Super strong clip keeps it clipped in my back pocket.
