The Random Leek from Kershaw and Ken Onion is one of a popular series of Leek Knives. This particular knife comes with a tanto blade and chromium nitride coating for hardness and corrosion resistance. You’ll adore this little knife with its partially serrated blade great for slicing and sawing its way through meat, wood, thin metals and plastics. Use it for a whittling knife or keep it in the kitchen to ironically chop up some leeks. The Leeks come with a frame lock to ensure that their blades stay firmly locked in place when fully opened which is easily released with the press of the spring loaded lock. The tip safety lock is also featured on this knife so you can be certain that knife blade will stay firmly in place when its closed.
Reversible ClipThe Leek handles are drilled for both tip-up and tip-down clip carry. The clip can be rotated 180º .
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.
