The Leek provides pocket-perfect size and high-performance materials. It offers a distinctive design as well as SpeedSafe ambidextrous manually assisted opening. With SpeedSafe, the user can smoothly and easily deploy the blade with just one hand, either left or right. It comes with a secure locking liner and a removable/reversible pocket clip for tip-up or tip-down carry. The newest Leek, the dramatic composite-blade Leek, combines the durability and corrosion resistance of 14C28N stainless steel with the toughness and wear resistance of CPM-D2. The two steels are permanently fused together and the join is highlighted with an attractive copper accent. Designed to go anywhere and do just about anything, the made-in-the-USA Leek is the ideal carrying knife.
The Leek series includes some of Kershaw's most popular knives, and this model is no exception. This particular knife features a distinctive design by celebrated knife maker Ken Onion, who created the SpeedSafe ambidextrous assisted opening system. With SpeedSafe, the user can smoothly and easily deploy the blade with one hand, either left or right. This makes it ideal for sporting and work situations in which one-handed opening is easier and safer, such as when hunting, fishing, or working with your hands on the jobsite. The Leek also sports a simple bead-blasted stainless-steel handle, which offers strength and beauty. If the stainless handle isn't your cup of tea, Kershaw also offers the Leek in a variety of other handle styles, some with technologically advanced coatings for enhanced performance. For example, the "smoked" double-anodized aluminum handle gives the Leek a truly one-of-a-kind look, while the black tungsten DLC-coated handle produces a non-reflective surface.
The Leek also comes with a Kershaw pocket clip, which is meant to be clipped with the handle on the inside of your pocket. The clip is not to be worn on a belt, as this is an unsafe way to carry your knife.
The SpeedSafe assisted opening system lets you smoothly deploy the blade with 1 hand.
Knife Maker Ken Onion
A master of his trade, Ken Onion is one of the most sought-after custom knife makers in the industry. His custom knives can be found in the most prestigious private knife collections as well in as in the pockets of his dedicated customers. Ken's involvement in the knife trade dates back to his time in Palestine, West Virginia, where he was inspired at the age of 12 by Vernon Ott, a local blacksmith and maker of garden tools and knives. In the ensuing years, Ken joined the U.S. Marine Corps and worked in such fields as construction, heavy equipment repair, and hydraulics repair, always with an eye toward eventually designing the perfect knife. In November of 1991, Ken met Stan Fujisaki, a talented knife maker who agreed to teach him the tricks of the trade. After years of preparation--and some inspiration while working on a Harley cam for a friend--Ken created his first SpeedSafe knife. Today, Ken designs a custom selection of knives for Kershaw, many featuring the patented SpeedSafe torsion bar system for assisted opening. Ken is personally involved throughout the design and manufacturing process to ensure that each knife meets his high standards for performance and quality.

Beautiful knife but I think that its not so great for hard tasks. If I grip it too hard the frame lock tends to get wedged. Read morePublished 4 days ago by Brooke
It's a fantastic looking knife. It's small, locks closed, and has a high quality blade, making this a perfect every day carry. The price is certainly fair.Published 5 days ago by Tom
Very upset with this product. This is a great knife. I have previously purchased the black wash version and loved it. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Kevin
My husband absolutely loves this knife. It's light weight and he carries it with him daily!Published 2 months ago by Shop Girl
Nice knife. Very thin and comfortable to carry. It fits great in your hand. The action is smooth and lockup is solid. Plus how can you go wrong with D2 as a blade steel.Published 2 months ago by adam c tremblay
