Kershaw Knives
 
Kershaw Knives describes this item as follows:

The Leek series includes some of our most popular knives. And no wonder. Kershaw's Leeks offer Ken Onion's distinctive design as well as the SpeedSafe ambidextrous assisted opening system. With SpeedSafe, the user can smoothly and easily deploy the blade with one hand, either left or right. Leeks come in a variety of handle styles, some with technologically advanced coatings for enhanced performance. For example, the bead-blasted stainless steel handle offers strength and beauty. A handle with black Tungsten DLC coating produces a Leek with a non-reflective surface. For lightweight and a one-of-a-kind look, choose our "smoked" double-anodized aluminum finish in two colors. Or choose our Pink Leek with it's fashionable pink anodized aluminum handle, the Rainbow Leek with its titanium oxide coating that produces a highly scratch resistant, brilliant, rainbow finish. Also new in 2007 is our Random Leek with a modified Tanto blade for cutting power and chromium nitride coating for hardness and corrosion resistance. For ease of carrying, all Leeks include a reversible/removable pocket clip.

Love this knife
I love this small knife it is very handle to get out of pocket and stay sharp and it is to sharp when it need it,I had it about a year and broke the blade I miss having it so much I went and bought a new one. Then sent the old one in to have new blade put in it and they replaced it for free I will be buying more of their knives. I Like their USA knives

Yes, you want to make the purchase.
This is an excellent knife and has served me well over the past few years. I've alternated using other knives like the gerber paraframe and the ka-bar dozier but I always come back to this one eventually. The blade steel is great quality and the assisted opening is very reliable. I have used this knife for opening packages, envelopes, boxes, carving wood/whittling, and it has held up great. Just goes to show you the quality that Kershaw puts into its products. I just purchased another leek with the desert sand finish and I have a feeling I will get my hands on a few more in the future. But I've used this particular model for everything. My only complaint (and it's very minor) is that the bolts on the handle sometimes come loose causing the handle to feel slightly insecure but it's very minimal. The blade, however, has no play at all. Highly recommend this knife.

Cons: Handle Feel
Great Knife
This is the first knife I have owned that I bother to carry every day. I have a slender frame and found this knife to be incredibly comfortable to carry. The clip is close to the edge so when inserted into the pocket it sits snugly against the back making the pocket usable. I love how light it is and find myself using it regularly for routine tasks such as opening boxes and cutting string, twine, tape, etc....it is always in my pocket when i find myself in need of a sharp blade, which it is. It may seem cool to have some thick and heavy blade for really tough tasks but the vast majority of the time this blade will meet your needs and because of its slender design you will actually be carrying it when you need it!
