I purchased this knife at a gun & knife show three years ago and have carried it everyday since. I’ve owned ($60.00) Spyderco and ($150.00) Benchmade (Automatic) knives, but this Stainless Leek model is slimmer, quicker to draw and has a better clip than both of these knives. Because of the unique spring action mechanism, many think it’s an “automatic” knife. My only recommendation is to occasionally lubricate/clean the mechanism to keep the action quick. I did have to tighen the allen screw to keep the safety from slipping “on” in my pocket. I will be ordering a second one at this price. This is a very well designed, well made pocket knife.

I have a lot of knives, among them Benchmade, Beretta, CRKT … but this Ken Onion Leek may be THE sharpest knife I have ever purchased. Aside from all the other great features you will read about in these reviews (they’re all true) it simply has a razor edge that is a box cutter’s equal. I have been developing my knife sharpening technique with a diamond stone and a steel for years now, and I can put an amazing edge on a knife. But not quite like this – this is a true razor’s edge. It starts to cut you the instant you test it.

I got my Leek because I wanted an every day carry knife with a “stay closed” safety, so it only opens when I want it to. I wear my knife hanging off a carabiner with my keys, and sometimes my old Beretta would come open when sliding into or out of my truck, for example. So I love that this has a tip safety. And for sure, the Speed Safe torsion opener is waaaaay cool. It’s the closest thing to a switchblade I’ve ever tried.

And major kudos to Kershaw for really putting a pro edge on this blade. A “criminal edge” – because it’s “sharper than the law should allow”. Have fun and be careful.

Like the Chive, this knife is a nice small package that’s deceptively stabby. Sure, it looks innocent, but how much of that blade do you want in your eye? Hypothetically speaking, of course. I would never indicate that you should stab people with this knife. Never ever.

The high points are the sleek design, flawless assisted opening, and light weight. I have problems with thumb studs on assisted opening knives, so I am very pleased that this has an index opening. For the safety-conscious, there is a safety lock to keep the blade from opening in your pants. Not that it will, but just in case I guess.

The Leek is a perfect knife for people with small hands; that i’s assisted opening is a definite bonus. Too many assisted opening knives are too bulky for my hand, or too powerful when it snaps open (Kershaw Tactical Blur, for example). The Leek firmly snaps into place without “recoil” and is light and small enough for people with small hands to easily use. But don’t be fooled by its innocent appearance. This knife can be a deadly little package and should not be underestimated.

I’m not a huge outdoorsman but wanted a nice everyday pocket knife. The Kershaw’s Leek fits the bill. I love the size, long enough to get your whole hand envolved with the task yet small enough to have clipped to your pocket and forget its there.

I was planning on taking the clip off and just letting the knife “float” in my pocket but fell in love with the clip. The only thing better than light weight in your pocket is no weight in your pocket.

I find that the knife is well designed and I really like the Speed Safe opening action. It has a solid “click” that lets you know that the knife is in a locked position. Super sharp and the perfect drop point blade.
