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.

Back to the edge of perfection
I'm in qualms over how to describe my affinity for this knife. Let's go back to 2004. I've had some cheap 'gas station' knives (I'm 41) up until then and I never really knew the difference until the Kershaw Leek MADE THE DIFFERENCE. My first "real" blade. As a bartender, a reliable knife soon becomes paramount. From processing inventory (boxes) to defending oneself from drunken evildoers, the Kershaw Leek had been there for me time and time again. Also, in the 5 years that I owned said Leek (it was stolen from me and now 16 yrs later I am buying my 2nd one), I only had to sharpen it once. So smooth in its opening, in its handling, and in its sexy lines. If you are on the fence about adding this knife to your cart, once you have the Kershaw Leek in hand, you'll understand why this has permeated throughout the knife world as one of the best damn EDC knives to ever grace a palm. Peace and safe living...
