DETAILS

New! Kershaw's patented composite blade technology plus blackwash™. The first thing you'll notice about this Leek is the Composite Blade. The wavy braze line permanently joins a razor-sharp D2 cutting edge to a Sandvik 14C28N spine. The next thing you'll notice is the new BlackWash finish. With a Composite Blade and BlackWash, this is the Leek that has it all. On the edge is a high-carbon, high-chromium D2 steel capable of taking and holding an incredible edge. On the spine is high-performance Sandvik 14C28N. With a composite blade, each type of steel is allowed to do what it does best. The Leek Composite BlackWash Folding Blade shares its 3-inch blade, slim, easy-to-carry design, and versatility with other Leeks. The BlackWash finish gives the Leek the look of a favorite, well worn pair of jeans-the ones you just can't live without. Once you own it, you may just feel that way about this Leek Composite BlackWash Folding Blade, too. The modified drop-point blade shape makes it a good slicing knife, while the slim tip gives it excellent piercing and detail work capabilities. SpeedSafe® assisted opening system makes it easy to open the knife one-handed, whether you're a lefty or a righty. A simple pull back on the ambidextrous flipper and the Leek's Composite Blade is ready to go to work. This Leek also features a handle of pure stainless steel, BlackWashed to match the blade.. A secure frame lock keeps the blade locked open 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.

Made In The USA
When you see this on one of our knives, it means the knife was made in our Tualatin, Oregon manufacturing facility by skilled Kershaw knifemakers.

Composite
A blade composed of several types of steel brazed together in a permanent joint; the technology enables Kershaw to use steel known for edge holding on the edge, strength on the spine for the best of both worlds.

SpeedSafe®
SpeedSafe is the patented, assisted opening system built into many of Kershaw's best selling Ken Onion knives. SpeedSafe assists the user to smoothly open the knife with a manual push on the blade's thumb stud or Index Open system. (Index-Open uses a protruding portion of the blade's finger guard to give the user an alternative to the thumb stud. The user manually pulls back on the protrusion with the index finger to open the blade.

Flipper
May be used on either manual or assisted opening knives. The "flipper" is a protrusion on the back of the blade that the user can pull back on, or flip, in order to move the blade easily out of the handle.

Frame Lock
Locks the blade into position after the blade is deployed.
To release the frame lock simply press the spring loaded lock and the blade will easily fold back into the handle.

Reversible
Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.
