Black Leek Serrated Edge

The Leek Knives by Kershaw and Ken Onion are wildly popular because of their utility and great variety in style. This particular black serrated Leek knife is just one of those many options. You’ll have just as much fun choosing the perfect Leek as you do using it.

Its black surface is courtesy of the tungsten DLC coated handle. Underneath this coating the handle is composed of 410 stainless steel. The blade is Sandvik 14C28N stainless steel, making both strong and rust resistant in the long term. A convenient pocket clip great for taking the knife with you and you’ll love that the handle of the Leek is drilled for tip up and tip down carry in the pocket clip and the clip can be flipped 180 degrees for ambidextrous use.

The knife features a frame lock to lock the Leek blade into position firmly when it is fully opened. You can release the blade to fold it down easily by pressing the spring loaded lock. It also features a Tip Safety Lock so you can be certainly that the blade of your Leek won’t accidentally deploy while 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.

Love this knife April 18, 2008
Reviewer: Bob Hergert from Port Orford, OR United States  
As soon as I bought one of these at the Oregon knife show, I had to buy another for a friend. I own many well-made knives, including custom folders. I embellish many with scrimshaw, then carry one to display my work. THIS is the one I'll carry now. Lightweight, sturdy, and fun to open (the kid in me can't resist).

Great Knife November 19, 2007
Reviewer: Matthew  from Falls Church, VA United States  
I bought this knife about a year ago. It does everything from cutting cheese, opening tough plastic packages,cutting open boxes and much more.  The only down fall is the coating doesn't take much wear and tea to scratch. Overall a great knife.

Best use yet of Technical know how November 19, 2007
Reviewer: Michael Kaplan from Atlanta, GA United States  
This knife is not only svelte but a joy to carry/use everyday.
The ability to 'rotate' the clip 180 degrees is a very welcome feature since it allows one to carry tip up or down. It may sound like "No Biggie" but it is...and since it only require the drilling at the factory of 2 more holes (for the clip screws) you have to wonder why everyone doesn't do this.
The 'assisted' opening is flawless, easy and has a safety if you wish to lock down the blade, etc.
It has been my experience that one is always in search of: the perfect wallet,belt,AND carry everyday knife. Well I only had to hold it and open/close it several times before I had the distinct feeling that I need look no further for the knife.

Great Small Knife!!!! November 19, 2007
Reviewer: James Bloyer from St. Louis Park, MN United States  
I own many quality knives such as Benchmande and Microtech, but this is the knife that I always carry with me!

It is as indespensible as my Victorinox Swiss Army knife. Why? It's small, retains a razor sharp edge, quickly opens with one hand, and is just plain Functional!

I'm buying three more for my friends.
