The Kershaw Leek is one of the sleekest and most popular assisted opening knives ever produced. It 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.

Classic knife, nontraditional color
Cassidy S. on Feb 3, 2020

The Leek is a classic and I'm not ashamed to say I have several in my collection. The bright colors add variety to my carry rotation, and you can't go wrong with Kershaw's Speedsafe mechanism.

I have several knifes that cost 10x more than this Kershaw, but I hate how beat up looking they get when used as a daily carry. When I try and use a less expensive knife it feels cheap and I end up switching back.... until now. This is a great little knife as good a value as any knife on this site.

Great knife
Mack R. on Jan 5, 2018

This knife isn’t the most expensive or best knife you could get but this knife is amazing and worth twice as much. Great quality. Highly recommend

Great knife
Brett B. on Jan 21, 2018

This is a great knife especially for the price I would highly recommend this knife for an edc blade very smooth action and good lock up no blade play at all

So close
Dutch A. on Mar 15, 2019

This knife has one of the most useful bladeshapes I have seen, and when it’s sharp, it is a joy to use. The problem is that it doesn’t hold an edge very well at all. Maybe I got one with a bad heat treat, but it seems like the edge wears down within just a few days of light use. I had a great name, a great design, a great action, and a great color, but I can’t give it more than 3 stars because It just doesn’t cut nearly as well as other knives I have in this price range. If they release a sprint run with a better steel I would definitely recommend getting it!
