The Kershaw Leek is one of the sleekest and most popular assisted opening knives ever produced. This model features a stylish bead blast finished 14C28N stainless blade (plain edge) and 410 stainless steel framelock handle. The Leek features Kershaw's patented SpeedSafe technology. Give the ambidextrous thumb-stud a push and the knife takes over opening the blade the rest of the way. This is an ideal one-handed opener with a reversible pocket clip and a tip safety lock so the blade won't fire by accident. The Leek is a Ken Onion design.

Great EDC
Benjamin D.
The Leek is such a useful form factor and blade shape that I ended up with three to keep handy at different locations. As an EDC knife, it disappears in a pocket. Very inconspicuous. The wharncliffe style blade is useful for pretty much any every day task most urban or suburban folks will come across on a given day and, at the price, you won't feel bad using it to lightsaber open boxes. Blade deployment and lockup are satisfying. Cannot recommend the Leek or Swindle (also a Ken Onion design) highly enough for affordable EDC that you won't be shy about using.
Great knife
Wyatt S.
This knife is great. If you want a reliable sturdy knife but don't want to alarm anyone with a big knife this is a great option. Fantastic quality. I've been EDC-ing it for a while now and the action is still super smooth and really strong. Nothing like those CCC springers. If you do buy this though just be cautious of rust. I got small speckles of rust on the blade and a tiny bit on the pocket clip. Other than that I would highly recommend this knife.
