Kershaw Knives
 
THERE ARE LOTS OF REASONS WHY THE LEEK IS SO POPULAR

The Kershaw Leek just may be the ideal EDC. With its 3-inch blade, the Leek is a good-sized knife, but not too big. The slim design makes it easy to carry and its razor-sharp blade of high-performance Sandvik 14C28N means it can take care of a full range of cutting tasks.

The blade is a modified drop-point, so it’s a good slicing knife, while the slim tip gives it piercing capability and the ability to do detailed work. For a partially serrated blade, choose the 1660ST Leek. Like other “Onion” knives, the Leek features the SpeedSafe ambidextrous assisted opening system.

Whether you’re left-handed or right-handed, just pull back on the blade protrusion or push outward on the thumbstud and the Leek’s blade is ready to go to work. In addition to its 14C28N blade, this Leek features a handle of pure stainless steel that gives it a clean, sleek look. For confident blade use, a super-secure frame lock keeps the blade locked during use and a Tip-Lock slider locks the blade closed when folded. The pocketclip can be configured for tip-up or tip-down carry and the handle is drilled to accept a lanyard.

Pros: Ease of Opening, Pocket Clip, Handle Feel, Weight, Blade Material, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Great knife at any price.
This is a great Every Day Knife. The design and feel is fantastic. Easy to open, the handle feels great and an easy to clean knife. I wished I would have known about this knife years ago. I had my last EDC stolen from my checked in luggage going to NYC, so this was a replacement knife and it was an improvement in every way. You won't go wrong by purchasing a Kershaw Leek!

Nice and Slippery
It's a great knife, just can't get a good grip on it. The handle is solid, but smooth as glass.

Cons: None
I sprang a "leek"!
I bought 3 of these on a promo for $99! Great deal, so I gave one to my son and another to my brother, keeping one for myself. We all love this knife. It's plenty sharp out of the box, has a smooth opening and the pocket clip can be changed for your carry preference. I've always liked Kershaw and would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a good quality, economical EDC. I also like the Wharncliffe-style bladed knives.
