Classy Solid EDC
Peter K.
The Leek is a light, thin, classy, and solid performing EDC. This is my second Kershaw and I am now a huge fan of their knives. The wharncliffe style blade is ideal for opening and breaking down boxes. After moderate use on boxes and packages, the blade was still sharp and still cut like new. The stainless steel look is clean and inconspicuous. My only complaint about the Leek would be the safety, I don't use it or have a reason to but I just keep it in the unlocked position, so no big deal. This knife a great EDC and highly recommend it.
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.
