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.

Customer Reviews

Great Tried and True Knife
Tim M. on Feb 18, 2022

I have owned several Kershaw Leek's in my collection over the years and have never had a bad one. They never had any issues. Great reliable choice.

Best little folder ever!
Peter M. on May 18, 2018

My dad originally owned this knife for awhile. It was his favorite knife he ever carried. Because of how reliable it was, he bought two! Whenever he pulled it out, it would draw attention from anybody he was near. After he bought a Benchmade, he gave his leek to me, and I've been using it with no complaint whatsoever. It feels great, stays sharp, and looks amazing!

Best looking and functioning EDC
Burton r. on Dec 15, 2018

I bought this knife because it's something that looks nice enough to carry all the time, that's not an aggressive design, while still maintaining that spring assisted design. The two toned design is more faint than it appears in the picture, but it becomes more prominent with age and use. Plus, if you ever need a new blade, it's only $10 to get a new blade from Kershaw.

Not quite as pictured
James D. on Mar 25, 2019

Overall I like (and will keep) this knife for all the reasons that everyone likes the Leek in its many variations. But just be aware that the D2 and Sandvik are NOT two distinct colors as shown above. The copper line in the seam is nicely visible, but there is almost no difference in the finish or color of the two steels. Whether the image above was PhotoShopped or just a trick of lighting I can't say, but it's not what the knife actually looks like.

Tip broke off
Donovan R. on Nov 16, 2022

This knife look very cool and I like that it was made in the USA. However the fact that to tip of the knife broke off is very disappointing. I purchase this as a gift for my father and was hoping to buy more for the family if it was a good knife, not anymore. Now that the tip has broke off the blade no longer locks. I’ve had two Kershaw‘s and they were great but we’re half the price of this one and lasted longer I have had one for about 3 years now so ya wish it was more durable.
