The popular Kershaw Leek was designed for Kershaw by knife maker Ken Onion. The Leek features SpeedSafe assisted opening and a flipper for quick release of the blade. Over the years, the Leek has experienced blade steel and handle upgrades; however, the design of the knife has remained the same. With all of the options, you can find the Leek to suit your needs, such as the composite blade Leek or the DLC coated Leeks. Aluminum handle scale versions feature a liner locking mechanism and heftier 410 stainless steel handle versions sport solid frame locks. Always dependable, always new and always sharp at Gpknives!
