This knife is fantastic for what it is intended to do. Because it is slim and lightweight, it's a great blade for Every Day Carry. One can carry the Leek in any pocket, along with other items and not even notice it's there. I've always carried a knife clipped into the same pocket I keep my wallet in and after years of carrying rough textured G-10 handled Emerson's or even rougher textured CRKT M-16 series knives, carrying the Leek is a welcome relief for my much scratched upon and abused hands. The spring assisted opening action is easy to use and fast, and the blade is incredibly sharp right out of the box. However, the blade is rather thin and I've already had a small part of the delicate tip chip off. If you get the black coated version, the coating will wear off rather quickly (although this is to be expected with almost all black coated knives). Do not use this knife for incredibly hard tasks, like chopping down trees or gutting grizzly bears. If you're looking for a good knife to carry around for simple tasks though, this is the knife for you! Most often, I carry a larger and thicker bladed knife (usually an Emerson or a Benchmade) as my primary go to knife but since the Leek is so lightweight and freakin awesome, I'll have it in my back pocket as a back up blade. If you use this knife correctly, you will not be disappointed as Kershaw once again delivers the best value for it's price range.

Yes, it is a fingerprint magnet -- but, hey, that means you get to polish it!

Okay, now to the guts of the review. It is, as Leeks are, sharp as all get out and both pretty and useful. But this one is best for dressier carry. It is a whole lot smoother, and therefore more slippery, than the other Leeks. For an EDC knife, I'd recommend the standard stainless or the black or, best of all, the composite-blade Leek. Unless you don't have any other Leeks, because then, even if you have a lot of other knives, this is the one to carry.

Do understand, though, that a knife is for cutting things, not for driving or loosening screws or prying things open. For those tasks, get a multi-tool.

The are guys called Leek Nuts who have gone nuts collecting the Kershaw Leek. This is a particularly nice model, incredible blue, green and pink hues. Comes very sharp out of the box. While the Leek makes a great EDC knife this model is almost too pretty to do anything more with than open envelopes and such.

I got this knife over a year ago, and it is just nuts how well this thing stands up to the stupid things I do to it. The speedsafe mechanism is perfect, the bladelock works perfectly, the jimping is in just the right place, and (personal preference) the material, size, and shape of the knife is perfect to carry around clipped on your side pocket without being annoying whenever you reach into your pocket. I love it. But more important is the blade. I don't know how good 1660 steel is (I thought it was middle of the road, but I could be wrong), but using this knife every day, the wear on the blade is remarkable. I use it for everything... as well as things I definitely shouldn't use it for (prying staples out of industrial cardboard, cutting heavy duty zip ties at odd angles, using it as a makeshift standard screwdriver, etc...) I'm always careful when I use it for things I shouldn't, but the blade is always fine. I've even bent the tip of the knife to probably a 30-45 degree angle, and was able to bend it back without it snapping. I don't know what sort of magic steel 1660 is... Maybe Ken Onion forged these in Mordor or something... I don't know, but I would buy 100 of these things if I had to... And I've only had to buy one. Great knife!

Superbly made knife with attention to detail - - made in USA. The model number is 1660VIB since not shown under product details, and the MSRP on Kershaw's website is $129.95. It's so beautiful that I have to hide it from my girl friend to keep her from `borrowing' it. Has a great limited lifetime warranty which reads: "Any product we find to be defective in its original material, construction, or workmanship will be repaired or replaced with the same item or one of equal value at no charge. (Of course, normal wear, rust, abuse such as prying with the knife, or neglect are excluded from this non-transferable warranty.)" They will also routinely sharpen the knife whenever needed at no charge, aside from the cost of initially shipping the knife to the Kershaw facility.

This is my first Kershaw, but certainly not the last.
