With its razor-sharp D2 cutting edge and Sandvik 14C28N spine, the Kershaw Leek with Composite Blade is designed to be your go-to knife for any cutting task.

Crafted with a composite blade, the Kershaw Leek is a high-performance knife with a variety of features that make it stand out from the crowd. Its modified drop-point blade shape makes it perfect for slicing, while the slim tip allows for detailed work. Plus, with a slim, easy-to-carry design, the Leek is versatile enough to take with you wherever you go.

The BlackWash finish gives the Leek the look and feel of a well-kept favorite pair of jeans that you can't live without. Additionally, its stainless steel handle is finished with the same BlackWash technique, which adds an extra layer of protection against corrosion and scratches.

One of the outstanding features of the Leek is its Composite Blade. The wavy braze line permanently joins a high-carbon, high-chromium D2 cutting edge to a Sandvik 14C28N spine. With a Composite Blade, each type of steel is allowed to do what it does best. This results in a blade that is strong, durable, and capable of taking and holding an incredibly sharp edge.

The knife's assisted opening system, combined with the ambidextrous flipper, makes it a breeze to open one-handed, whether you are left-or right-handed. Plus, with a secure frame lock to keep the blade locked open during use and a Tip-Lock slider to lock the blade closed when folded, you can be sure you are using a safe, reliable tool.

The Leek also features a pocket clip that can be configured for tip-up or tip-down carry, and the handle is drilled to accept a lanyard. At 7 inches in total length, and weighing in at just 3 ounces, the Kershaw Leek is the perfect everyday carry knife.
