Stop calling it "razor sharp"!
Yes, this is a FANTASTIC knife for the price, and I agree with everyone who has reviewed it and labeled it the “best EDC knife” because that’s exactly what it is. The one thing it is NOT however, is razor sharp. That’s my ultimate pet peeve with all these knife reviews is people who use the term “razor sharp” to describe the way these EDC folding knives come from the factory. Anyone who uses that term needs to go to their local drugstore, buy a pack of razor blades for $5, and then compare an actual RAZOR BLADE to their new knife right out of the box and it will be extremely obvious how woefully inaccurate the term “razor sharp” is when applied to these blades as they come from the factory. Can you make them razor sharp? Sure. The 14C28N steel in these Leeks is the successor to the 13C26 that was designed for scalpels, so yes, you can make them razor sharp, but then if you use it for everyday tasks the edge simply won’t last very long and you’ll end up spending a lot more time sharpening you knife than actually using it.Anyhow, rant aside, I love the leek, and I love the design of it. It’s a lot lighter and sleeker and easier to carry in my pocket than my Blur or my Manix 2 since both of those have much rougher grip surfaces which make them a little more difficult to remove from the pocket. I know some people don't like the bead blasted steel, but my hands don't sweat much so it works fine for me. Plus, if you do want a razor sharp knife this is a good one to start with due to the nice straight cutting edge, just be ready to do some work to get it there.
