Hello!

I dig sharp things - usually buy Spyderco - but the Kershaw Leek has caught my eye. I've drooled over them all over the Internet ... never handled one in real life. I'd like to hear from those who have owned or do own this model - pros & cons please!

Thank you,

Jim

I have a couple and find them very useful and easy to carry. I do not like the safety, but it is easily removed. Had an issue with the pocket clip bending, great customer service. They are the right size for me, for daily carry. They take and hold a good edge. Great value for the money.

Nice knife, mine came very sharp. The lock, as mentioned takes a little bit to get used to, or remove it. The tip is very pointy, so no prying with it!

I lost my Leek with G10 and S30V blade. I still have not found it!

Damn, they don't make it anymore.

I had to fall back to a plain Leek. Good but not as nice as the lost Leek.

Bought one at the Finn Feather and Fur last week, On sale for 32.00 till December 2017. Great EDC knife as it is light and very sharp.

The Leek is a great knife. Very thin in your pocket and work well for EDC if you like a thiner profile blade.

Kershaw as a company is great to deal with. I have a dozen or so of their knives and every once in awhile I send them in for factory sharpening and a check out. Recently I sent them 6 knives and they replaced 4 under warranty for not having a tight lock up. The 5th knife they replaced the blade free of charge for reasons unknown. These knives were all over 5 years old and were used hard.

Very nice knives for the money.

Top Gun Supply has a Olive Handle/Black Blade Leek on sale right now for $30

I had a Leek for a little while. It was my first assisted-opening knife. I didn't care for the assisted-opening feature, it always made me feel a little uneasy with it in my pocket unless the safety was on, and I didn't care for the safety. I ended up selling it and sticking with my Delicas.

But lots of people like them. If you can't handle one, you may just have to buy one and see for yourself. Worst case scenario, you sell it and maybe lose a few dollars in the process if you don't like it.

Hello!

Thanks for all the input - greatly appreciated!

I usually get my knives with blades that are half plain and half serrated. I've read that the Leek serrations are unlike any other, making them difficult to sharpen. How are they sharpened?

Thank you again,

Jim
