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.

I use this knife most frequently to open cardboard boxes. It has a good locking mechanism and I like the coloring and also how it opens.

Hard to beat as a 'dress knife,' also great for EDC
When I buy knives, I buy them with a specific role in mind, and spend about a week doing research, reading reviews, and generally being anal about making a decision, and then I review them a few months later with that role in mind. When I bought this knife, it was to have a classy knife that I could carry in dressed-up situations that would both look nice and perform well. When I received this knife, I liked it so much I started EDC-ing it. The pictures you see online don't even begin to it justice. It's easily the sleekest, most beautiful knife I own, and one of the most usable. The finish is absolutely stunning, especially in sunlight, and it's durable above and beyond what I expected. I've used the blade to deburr holes drilled in quarter-inch aluminum with not so much as a scratch. The entire knife picks up fingerprints like a mirror, but wipes off on a t-shirt very easily. The handle isn't grippy, but for the purposes I use it for it doesn't have to be. The blade itself has an interesting shape; it's kind of like a Delica and a sheepsfoot had babies. The tip is long and slender, good for precision work and light- to medium-duty EDC tasks. Don't expect to use it as a woodworking knife; the tip's not up to that. The spring assist is responsive and quiet, and the safety is simple and hasn't loosened in the half a year or so that I've had the knife. The knife is also a good one to carry in places where knives aren't politically correct. I get complemented on it all the time. It makes a great conversation starter. It's a pretty damn great feeling to have a girl come up to you, interested in your knife. Overall, for the purpose, I don't think I'll ever find a better knife than this one.
