Kershaw Knives
 
Looking for a Leek that won't get lost in the grass? Take a look at our orange Leek. 

The brilliant orange of the anodized-aluminum handle is a fade-resistant, scratch-resistant dye that’s permanently bonded to the aluminum—so it looks good now, and will continue to look good later. The business end of the knife is a task-ready 3-inch blade of Sandvik 14C28N stainless steel, a steel designed in a partnership between Kershaw and Sandvik. This high-performance steel enables us to make the Leek’s blade razor sharp out of the box and helps it hold that edge, too. The modified drop-point blade shape makes it a good slicing knife, while the slim tip gives it excellent piercing and detail work capabilities.

Whether you’re left-handed or right-handed, it’s easy to open your orange Leek with SpeedSafe assisted opening. A simple pull back on the ambidextrous flipper blade protrusion or push outward on the thumbstud and the Leek’s blade is ready to go to work. For safety, a locking liner keeps the blade locked open during use and a Tip-Lock slider locks it closed when folded. The pocketclip is reversible for tip-up or tip-down carry and the handle is drilled to accept a lanyard.

The orange Leek is a slim, easy-to-carry design that gives you plenty of cutting versatility—and good looks.
Features
  • Flipper - May be used on either manual or assisted opening knives. The "flipper" is a protrusion on the back of the blade that the user can pull back on, or flip, in order to move the blade easily out of the handle.
  • SpeedSafe® - Assists you to open any SpeedSafe® knife quickly and easily with a manual push on the thumbstud or pull back on the flipper; built into many Kershaw best sellers.
  • Liner Lock - Locks the blade open during use; one side of the knife’s steel “liner,” the steel plate to which the handle scales are attached, moves into position behind the blade to securely lock it open.
  • Reversible - Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.
  • Made In The USA - When you see this on one of the knives, it means it was made in their Tualatin, Oregon manufacturing facility by skilled Kershaw knifemakers.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Lock Ease of Use, Weight, Ease of Opening, None
Cons: Handle Material
Perfect knife for work
As a pediatric RN at a major Midwest children's hospital, I come on tasks daily where I need a knife, not just bandage shears. This knife is razor sharp; opens easily with one hand; and, in a post-9/11world where knives are viewed as evil, the orange handles say "paramedic tool" rather than tactical weapon. It's perfect for my work.

Kershaw Leek
Perfect EDC for light use. Opening letters,boxes ect. Cutting paracord and the like. Amazing deployment speed. Fit and finish amazing. Hesitated at first about getting a Leek due to the hype- but it's all true. Pure class. Light,sharp out of the box and stays that way. If you want a small piece of history buy the Leek
