Sharpest and coolest folding knife I've ever seen
on November 4, 2010
I wanted to buy a knife for a female friend as a gift. She loves things that are pink-colored. So naturally I searched for "pink knife". Lots of crap showed up in the results, as expected, but this Kershaw Leek was in the results and I began reading all the reviews for this knife and Kershaw's other knives. I bought it, and of course had to check it out when it arrived. Forget that it's pink. This is the sharpest gosh-darned blade I've ever handled, short of a scalpal or box-cutter. It easily passed the paper test with only the weight of itself. The handle is a sort of matte-finished metal that is easy to grip, and is ever-so-lightly rough to the touch. There are two ways to open the blade: with the standard thumb-knob, and a small notch on back that you can press and the blade flips right open. I advise using only this notch on the back, and the thumb-knob isn't quite big enough and is positioned just perfectly so when the blade begins to open, it's easy for your thumb to slide into the edge of the blade...something which I do not recommend, considering how bloody sharp the blade is. Long story short, I fully intend on buying one of these (in a non-pink color) for myself. For the price, it's the best folding knife in the world as far as I'm concerned.
