Kershaw® Knives describes this item as follows:
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 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.
This knife will mark the first appearance of our new proprietary steel 14C28N. Our 14C28N is made by Sandvik Steel out of Sweden, and will have similar performance characteristics of 13C26 but will have /much improved corrosion resistance/. The hardness of the steel will fall into the 59-60 Rc category.
This Random Leek will sport a Stonewashed finish and will come in plain edge only. It will incorporate the standard Leek Frame Lock.Limited Edition - Only 1,000 pieces made. Specifications
