Many people consider the Kershaw Leek the ideal EDC knife. Its slim, stainless steel handle has a clean design and houses a razor-sharp 3-inch blade. The blade is held in place when open by a super-secure frame lock, and a Tip-lock slider locks the blade closed when it’s folded in your pocket. The Leek’s 14C28N blade is a modified drop point, and it’s offered in plain and partially serrated versions. Opened to its 7-inch overall length, the Leek is a good slicing knife, and its slim tip gives it piercing capability and the ability to do detailed work. Like other Ken Onion designs, the Leek features the Speedsafe ambidextrous assisted-opening system: Just pull back on the flipper, and the Leek’s blade is ready to go to work. The pocket clip can be mounted in two positions.
