Kershaw Knives

The famous Kershaw Leek just got better—with the new BlackWash finish that gives this Leek an already-broken-in look, like your favorite pair of well worn jeans. 

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. The BlackWash™ 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.

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.
  • Flipper - May be used on either manual or assisted opening knives. The "flipper" is a protrusion on the back of the blade that the user can pull back on, or flip, in order to move the blade easily out of the handle.
  • SpeedSafe® - Assists you to open any SpeedSafe® knife quickly and easily with a manual push on the thumbstud or pull back on the flipper; built into many Kershaw best sellers.
  • Frame Lock - A portion of the handle (the knife frame) moves behind the blade to lock it into position during use. This is a safety feature of the knife.
  • Reversible - Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.
  • Made In The USA - When you see this on one of the knives, it means it was made in their Tualatin, Oregon manufacturing facility by skilled Kershaw knifemakers.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Ease of Opening, Weight, Pocket Clip
Cons: None
Sleek Quality Flipper!
My first EDC knife! The black wash finish is awesome. Being a businessman, the size of this knife carries nicely with dress slacks. It's sleek design makes it easy to carry in pocket and doesn't draw a lot of attention when I use it in an office environment. The Leek exudes quality in every facet. The flipper action is smooth and quick, the blade is razor sharp, and the clip is well designed for deep pocket carry. The blade lock feature is a plus! While it's not a heavy duty EDC, it handles all cutting tasks encountered in the office without a problem. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

super slim
I just purchased this beautiful locker and love it already. Very sharp and should stay that way. It fits perfect in my suit jacket and none of my clients or partners would even guess it was there. Love the drop point too very handy for everyday stuff, the finish looks amazing as well and it also fits great in jean pocket. I did not buy it for heavy use but I think it would take a fair amount of abuse.

Blackwash Leek
This is a typical high quality Kershaw Leek. Very sharp, good pocket size, slim, fast opener. I was pleasantly surprised at how good the blackwash finish looks. I thought it would be good, but it suits the metal handle w. matching blade very well. It will take residence in the pocket of my black jean jacket.
