Great Quality... Great Carry Knife,
This review is from: Kershaw Leek Knife (Sports)
I purchased this knife at a gun & knife show three years ago and have carried it everyday since. I've owned ($60.00) Spyderco and ($150.00) Benchmade (Automatic) knives, but this Stainless Leek model is slimmer, quicker to draw and has a better clip than both of these knives. Because of the unique spring action mechanism, many think it's an "automatic" knife. My only recommendation is to occasionally lubricate/clean the mechanism to keep the action quick. I did have to tighen the allen screw to keep the safety from slipping "on" in my pocket. I will be ordering a second one at this price. This is a very well designed, well made pocket knife.

That spring action you refer too is a thing of beauty. It is pretty much automatic but what seperates it from the pack is that the opening is so precise and flowing. So many spring openers practicaly fly out you your hand when you flip them open. Not this one, it's just one smooth gliding flip to open with no slam to your hand at the end. Nice.

What kind of oil do you use to keep the mechanism lubricated?
