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.

Absolutely beautiful knife, made in the USA, and sharper than a scalpel. If you buy this knife, please learn a lesson from me: I accidentally brushed (and I mean brushed) my finger... Read morePublished 14 days ago by john elmquist

Better than I thought it would be. It will take a razor sharp edge and operate perfectly.Published 1 month ago by al arsenault
Good knife, but it got rusty when I took it camping. Looks like D2 steel isn't as corrosion resistant as other steels.Published 1 month ago by Brian
