The Leek series includes some of Kershaw's most popular knives. And no wonder. Kershaw's Leeks offer Ken Onion's distinctive design as well as the SpeedSafe ambidextrous assisted opening system. With SpeedSafe, the user can smoothly and easily deploy the blade with one hand, either left or right. Leeks come in a variety of handle styles, some with technologically advanced coatings for enhanced performance. For example, the bead-blasted stainless steel handle offers strength and beauty. A handle with black Tungsten DLC coating produces a Leek with a non-reflective surface. For lightweight and a one-of-a-kind look, choose the "smoked" double-anodized aluminum finish in two colors. Also new in is the Random Leek with a modified Tanto blade for cutting power and chromium nitride coating for hardness and corrosion resistance. For ease of carrying, all Leeks include a reversible/removable pocket clip. What is Speed Safe? It is the patented, assisted opening system built into many of Kershaw's best selling Ken Onion knives. Speed Safe assists the user to smoothly open the knife with a manual push on the blade's thumb stud or Index open system. The Index Open uses a protruding portion of the blade's finger guard to give the uses an alternate to the thumb stud. The user manually pulls back on the protrusion with the index finger to open the blade. The heart of the Speed Safe system is its torsion bar. Closed, the torsion bar helps keep the knife closed, preventing it from being opened by gravity. In order to open the knife, the user must apply manual pressure to the thumb stud to overcome the resistance of the torsion bar. After the blade is out of the handle, the torsion bar moves along its half moon track and takes over. The blade opens smoothly and locks into position.

I have purchased several of these knives from Knifeworks as gifts and have a Random version for myself. The price point is perfect on these knives and they make great gifts, especially with engraving. The assisted open feature is intuitive and fun for new knife people, and the slim profile makes for easy carry in almost any clothing, including tight-fitting women's jeans. A useful and memorable gift. At this price, there really is no competition. (Posted on 12/29/2013)
FORMAL EDCReview by Michael Ng
A really nice blade for "formal wear" EDC. Smart looking. Nice weight in the hands. Small enough to be carried discreetly but still have enough blade to be practical. (Posted on 10/25/2013)
