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.

First off, this knife looks classy. Not too threatening for the office environment, but still plenty functional. Slices through food at lunchtime without a hitch! The only thing that is a little annoying is that the safety isn't tight, so sometimes will move a little when the blade is deployed, so the tip of the blade may come down onto the safety bar if you don't check it first. Not a big deal, but something to be aware of. Quite snappy, the SpeedSafe really does it's job. Overall, loving it!
Everyone loves a good leak, myself included. This one just had that special look with the black wash finish. This is a knife my wife not only approved of, but tried to steal! Needless to say I may have to pick up a second one in the near future.
This was the first Leek I bought and I loved it so much I bought the carbon fiber one. This one will feel great in your hands and spring into action with a little flip. All the Kershaw Leeks are good, it's just up to your preference.
Bought this for my wife to stick in her purse and it quickly grew on me. Just a great little knife, sharp out of the box. Love the stainless steel handle and frame lock. Guess I need one for myself.
This is a classy little EDC.... Flips out fast and smooth and looks great. The fish feels really nice in your hand ..... The blade is a unique shape that you will find many uses for.... Great to carry everyday if you don't need anything bigger
For a small light weight edc knife I love it! This knife has a really thin blade so I usually only use it for very light tasks like cutting string or opening boxes. This knife has also been my go to for cutting fruit I bring for lunch as it slices so effortlessly. If you're looking for an inexpensive classy looking sharp as s**t knife that you can put in your pocket and forget but also endlessly enjoy playing with the spring assisted opening, this is the knife for you!
I love the look of this knife. I never owned a wharncliffe style blade before and I love it. This knife is nice and compact, but has great blade length. It definitely fits in the pocket well, the assisted opening system is nice and snappy. It looks really classy with the blackwash finish. I love carrying this knife. I work in an office and the size is perfect for the environment. I love that Kershaw has so many different color options for the Leek, this gives you the ability to find a good color that fits your preference.
Action's super smooth, and it feels excellent in the hand. Downside is the blade shape. I wouldn't call it dainty, but you do feel the fear of breaking the tip while you're using it. Great knife overall however.
The Leek is timeless and for good reason. It is sleek and is very flibbable due to the speed safe mechanism. The wharncliffe blade is sharp, pointy, fun to look at. It's really not the best for EDC but does have its uses. Fit and finish are very good for this pricepoint. Two issues. It carries too shallow in the pocket. And, the sliding lock is silly. It's too loose and slides around randomly. I tightened mine down fully so it doesn't move.
Solid knife. My only buyers remorse is going with this model. I'd rather save twenty bucks and some weight and get the entry level leek with an aluminum handle.
