Kershaw Knives
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.

Excellent Knife
The look edge quality and design are all superior. I had a knife just like this several years ago and the little pin that holds the blade in the closed position broke. I sent it back to Kershaw and they fixed and returned it in a very timely manner. However it broke again within a month. I gave the knife away after that. Aside from that I loved the other knife. I am hoping that the problem has been rectified as all this happened a few years ago. The knife is small, holds a razor edge and is the right size for all the things you use a pocket knife for. I would recommend this knife to anyone. It would also make a great present. RES

Damascus Leek
Got my 4th Leek, first Damascus one, yesterday and it was as beautiful as I knew it would be. Like all my Kershaws it came razor sharp.

Best knife i've ever owned
This is an amazing purchase. I bought one for me and one for my father, and we are both blown away by this knife. one tip i have is to flip the pocket clip around (there are screw holes in place for this) and if you plan on carrying it clipped to your pocket, while you have the clip out, tweak it a little bit more tightly. this makes for a nice snug fit in my slacks or jeans.
