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.

Pros: Lock Type, Ease of Opening, Lock Ease of Use, Handle Material
Cons: Overall Quality, None
Smooth, but.......
Upon getting my knife, this was the first time I had ever seen the Leek. I had no idea what to really expect. The fit and finish are excellent, as are the actions of the lock and opening mechanism. It's smooth and fun to flick open. But wow, is this knife DAINTY. I almost want to say it is flimsy, but I might be unfairly denigrating it with that term-- especially since the locking mechanism feels robust for a knife this size. But is it really necessary to make a knife blade this pointy and thin. It is absurdly thin. You know a blade is too thin when you can EASILY bend the tip with your own two fingers. This knife might be right for some people, but I personally can not get over the daintiness of it. It's just not for me. Ironically enough, I have used this knife on a few occasions for purposes that benefited from the blade's slender qualities. Overall, it's a fine little knife, and it can definitely find a niche in my collection. But when I get my Umnumzaan back, that will be occupying front pocket again.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
Cons: None
Gorgeous, slick, well made and opens / locks instantly!
Again, I bought the smaller version of this knife first and THEN bought this "bigger brother" version. Sharp, Strong, Opens easily and FAST, resilient pocket / money clip and UNDER the arbitrary 3" rule in California. Edge holds well with a razor edge. This knife should cost 2x as much.

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
