Kershaw Leek Folding Knife
i own roughly 200 knives all of high quality from sog to gerber, buck, browning, and so on. i also have several kershaws crkt and benckmades. the kershaw leek is easily my favorite by a stretch. i use it everyday in the construction field and it performs great. razor sharp and durable. the assisted opening is top notch and it holds an edge like no other. also its slim design, smooth surface and lightweight make it a perfect and extremely comfortablr knife to carry everyday for any occasion. my only ever complaint is the narrow tip makes it a tad fragile. i highly reccomend it though.i have owned 5 of them and at least one of every style leek.

Best pocket knife ever
I bought this knife in the store when it opened in Manteca. I've since purchased two more for my son's. I fish a lot and I've always multitasking with line, bait, etc. This "open" assist feature is the best idea cause it opens with the use of one hand, or just 3 fingers. The blade is really sharp, and the design of the blade makes it easier to follow the edge of the knife to see where you're cutting. I've told numerous of my fishing buddies about this knife and I'm seriously thinking of getting a few more for my friends so they don't have to keep asking me to use my knife. Seriously, it's the best idea and design that I've ever seen and owned.

I have recommended this knife to many. I got a serrated blade for Christmas and think it is the best knife I've used. I use it for all purposes. With minimal honing (20 degree recommendation from Kershaw), it will take and hold a razor-sharp edge and cut through half-inch rope with minimal effort. It opens extremely quickly and easily, and closing is simple. The lock is solid. It feels great in the hand and is slim so that it goes in the pocket well. I got the serrated blade for cutting rope, but I find that the edge is so sharp that I do not use the serrated part. While I'm extremely pleased with the knife, if I had to do it over again, I'd get the blade without the serrated section.
