Kershaw Knives
 
THERE ARE LOTS OF REASONS WHY THE LEEK IS SO POPULAR

The Kershaw Leek just may be the ideal EDC. With its 3-inch blade, the Leek is a good-sized knife, but not too big. The slim design makes it easy to carry and its razor-sharp blade of high-performance Sandvik 14C28N means it can take care of a full range of cutting tasks.

The blade is a modified drop-point, so it’s a good slicing knife, while the slim tip gives it piercing capability and the ability to do detailed work. For a partially serrated blade, choose the 1660ST Leek. Like other “Onion” knives, the Leek features the SpeedSafe ambidextrous assisted opening system.

Whether you’re left-handed or right-handed, just pull back on the blade protrusion or push outward on the thumbstud and the Leek’s blade is ready to go to work. In addition to its 14C28N blade, this Leek features a handle of pure stainless steel that gives it a clean, sleek look. For confident blade use, a super-secure frame lock keeps the blade locked during use and a Tip-Lock slider locks the blade closed when folded. The pocketclip can be configured for tip-up or tip-down carry and the handle is drilled to accept a lanyard.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality
Cons: None
I sprang a "leek"!
I bought 3 of these on a promo for $99! Great deal, so I gave one to my son and another to my brother, keeping one for myself. We all love this knife. It's plenty sharp out of the box, has a smooth opening and the pocket clip can be changed for your carry preference. I've always liked Kershaw and would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a good quality, economical EDC. I also like the Wharncliffe-style bladed knives.

Pros: Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality
Cons: None
I was sceptical at first as I'd not previously owned a stainless blade that could compare with good carbon steel, but this one does. I've had a small pocket knife in my pocket since I was a small boy and so far this is the best of them. I bought one on a whim, used it everyday for a few years and then lost it, as I occasionally do. This time I've bought three just in case. I like to take the clip off as for me it's unnecessary. I use mine for everything from opening christmas presents to eviscerating game and it does a fine job.
