Kershaw Knives

Remember when you said, "I wish you guys made a plain black Leek with a stonewashed blade"?

Well, we made it.

Like other Leeks, it features a task-ready 3-inch blade, slim, easy-to-carry design, and cutting versatility. The modified drop-point blade shape makes it a good slicing knife, while the slim tip gives it excellent piercing and detail work capabilities. Built of Sandvik 14C28N high-performance stainless steel, the Leek’s blade comes razor sharp out of the box and holds its edge, too. We gave it a roughened up, stonewashed finish to hide scratches and for general cool looks. Of course, it also has SpeedSafe assisted opening for fast and easy one-handed opening. Left- or right-handed, a simple pull back on the ambidextrous flipper or push outward on the thumbstud and the Leek’s stonewashed blade is ready to go to work.

A sturdy frame lock keeps the blade 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.
  • 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.

  • Closed length: 4 in. (10.3 cm)
  • Overall Length: 7 in. (17.9 cm)
  • Reversible (tip-up/tip-down) pocketclip
  • Steel: Sandvik 14C28N, stonewashed finish
  • Handle: 410 Stainless Steel, DLC coating

Cons: Ease of Opening, Handle Material, Blade Material
good but one problem
This is my edc knife, and it certainly has done its job well. Whether opening boxes, eating, or any cutting task, it preforms admirably. There are 2 reasons for my 3 star review reason 1: The knife rusts fairly quickly. It rained everyday for about 2 weeks and I also carry the knife in my pocket when I exercise. I have had the knife for about 2 months, and there is a ring of rust where the blade is joined with the nub you use to open it on both sides. There are also tiny specs of rust on the blade close to the cutting edge. reason 2: the assist on my knife was not very strong out of the box. It took about a week or so of use to get it to open with one motion. You could call it user error but I have used other assisted folding knives and never had suck difficulty getting it to open in one swing. conclusion: This review is not intended to be a bashing of this knife. I still carry it everyday and I would recommend this knife for anyone looking for a relatively cheap edc. The only things I would warn someone of is keep it dry and don't expect the spring assist to be very strong. It will get the knife open, but the spring is no power house.

Nice knife
Like the knife. Easy open and close. Came very sharp. Only downside is the handle is very slick, first time closing I nicked my finger on the blade. More I use the better I have adjusted to it.
