Looking for a great knife? The Leek is a Best Buy
The Kershaw Leek just may be the ideal EDC. With its 3-inch blade, the Leek is a good-sized knife, but not too big. The slim design makes it easy to carry and its razor-sharp blade of high-performance Sandvik 14C28N means it can take care of a full range of cutting tasks.
The blade is a modified drop-point, so itâ€™s a good slicing knife, while the slim tip gives it piercing capability and the ability to do detailed work. For a partially serrated blade, choose the 1660ST Leek. Like other â€œOnionâ€ knives, the Leek features the SpeedSafe ambidextrous assisted opening system.
Whether youâ€™re left-handed or right-handed, just pull back on the flipper and the Leekâ€™s blade is ready to go to work. In addition to its 14C28N blade, this Leek features a handle of pure stainless steel that gives it a clean, sleek look. For confident blade use, a super-secure frame lock keeps the blade locked during use and a Tip-Lock slider locks the blade closed when folded. The pocketclip can be configured for tip-up or tip-down carry and the handle is drilled to accept a lanyard.
The independent review site, Outdoor Gear Lab, recently awarded the Kershaw Leek its Best Buy of 2016.
