Black Leek Plain Edge

The all black Leek knife by Kershaw and Ken Onion features a plain edged blade and several excellent safety features. After all, having a knife is a necessity but that doesn't mean you can’t feel comfortable having it around and with this Leek blade you’ll be very happy indeed. This particular black Leek knife is just one of the many optional styles of Leek knife that are available from Kershaw.

The flat matte black surface is a result of the tungsten DLC coated handle. The metal handle underneath is composed of 410 stainless steel. This Leek blade is composed of Sandvik 14C28N stainless steel. Both are strong and provide long term rust resistance.

You’ll also receive a convenient 180 degree reversible pocket clip and the handle of the Leek is drilled for tip up and tip down carry in the clip.

In addition there is a frame lock to lock the Leek blade into position when it is fully opened. Release the blade easily by pressing the spring loaded lock. It also features a Tip Safety Lock so that the Leek won’t accidentally deploy in your pocket clip.

Reversible Clip
The Leek handles are drilled for both tip-up and tip-down clip carry. The clip can be rotated 180º .

Frame Lock
Locks the blade into position after the blade is deployed. To release the frame lock simply press the spring loaded lock and the blade will easily fold back into the handle.

Tip Safety Lock
The tip lock available on many of the Ken Onion SpeedSafe models provides added security to assure that the blade will not deploy while clipped into your pocket.

SpeedSafe from Kershaw Knives revolutionized the knife industry when it was first introduced on the Ken Onion Chive. First off a knife that features SpeedSafe technology is not considered and automatic knife. The correct classification is an “Assisted Opening Knife. There are two variations of SpeedSafe. One being a “Flipper” where the user uses their index finger to deploy the blade, and the other the user uses the thumb stud found on the blade for deployment. Both variations require the user to apply manual pressure to overcome the resistance of the torsion bar. This is why a SpeedSafe does not meet the definition of being classified as a switchblade. A SpeedSafe will not deploy with the push of a button or by gravity alone. Once open, the blade locks safely into position until the user releases it. A key advantage of a SpeedSafe knife is that many of the models are ambidextrous, and can be opened just as easy by either a right or left handed person.

I never dress with out it. November 19, 2007
Reviewer: Tommy Southam from Butte City, CA United States  
I'm 54 year old and have had a knife in my pocket before grade school and this is by far my favorite. I'm going on four year's with this one and to my supprise the anidise finish on the blade and handle look as good as the first time I clipped it in my pocket. The only time you will fine me  without it is when I have the stash it is when I fly, and it's the first thing I dig for when I get back on the ground. Tom Southam Jr. Butte City Ca.

Best assisted opener November 19, 2007
Reviewer: Mark Smith from Dayton, NV United States  
The Leek is an extremely well built knife. Materials are first rate and the fit and finish is very solid. Durability is on par with knives that cost much much more. Opening action is smooth and easy with a satisfying little snap. Better than an automatic if you ask me. This knife is by far my favorite and have no doubt you will enjoy it too.
