The Kershaw® Leek, designed by Ken Onion, is one of the most popular Kershaw models we sell. Using the patented SpeedSafe® assisted opening system and a built-in flipper the blade is easy to deploy, left or right-handed. The modified Wharncliffe blade is good for slicing and the fine point makes this a perfect knife for detailed work. The blade has a stonewashed finish that helps to hide scratches earned through hard use. The carbon fiber handle helps to reduce the weight of the knife making it an extremely comfortable EDC.

The 3" blade is CPM-154 stainless at 59-61 Rc. Stainless steel liners support the carbon fiber handle scales. Liner style lock. Measures 4" closed. Weighs 2.4 oz. Made in the U.S.A. Suggested retail is $139.95.

Kershaw Knives

Kershaw Knives was founded in 1974 in Portland, Oregon when knife salesman Pete Kershaw started a cutlery company that would make knives from his designs. Japanese based KAI Cutlery manufactured those designs. In 1978, KAI Cutlery purchased Kershaw Knives and the company, renamed KAI USA Ltd., continues today with three product lines; including the original Kershaw Knives, Zero Tolerance Knives, and Shun Cutlery which primarily markets kitchen cutlery.

Over the years, Kershaw Knives has worked with several custom knifemakers. Cutlery Hall of Famer Ken Onion, a custom knife maker and inventor of the “SpeedSafe” assisted opening mechanism, is the premier knife designer for Kershaw Knives. Kershaw has also collaborated with custom knifemakers Grant and Gavin Hawk, Frank Centofante, and Ernest Emerson. Kershaw has released models that were developed in collaboration with National Geographic, Jeep, Orange County Choppers, the American Professional Rodeo Association, and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.

Kershaw manufactures excellent knives and has built a very strong customer fan base due to their innovative designs and their quality control.
