The famous Kershaw Leek just got betterwith the BlackWash finish that gives this Leek an already-broken-in look, like your favorite pair of well worn jeans. With its 3-inch blade, the Leek is a good-sized knife, but not too big. The slim design makes it easy to carry and its razor-sharp blade of high-performance Sandvik 14C28N means it can take care of a full range of cutting tasks. The blade is a modified drop-point, so its a good slicing knife, while the slim tip gives it piercing capability and the ability to do detailed work. The BlackWash Leek features the SpeedSafe ambidextrous assisted opening system. Whether youre left-handed or right-handed, just pull back on the flipper and the Leeks blade is ready to go to work. For confident blade use, a super-secure frame lock keeps the blade locked during use and a Tip-Lock slider locks the blade closed when folded. The pocketclip can be configured for tip-up or tip-down carry and the handle is drilled to accept a lanyard.
