The Kershaw Leek, named the Outdoor Gear Lab’s Best Buy of 2016, just may be the ideal EDC. With its 3” 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 that comes in both serrated and non-serrated styles, while the slim tip gives it piercing capability and the ability to do detailed work. Like other “Onion” knives, the Leek features the SpeedSafe ambidextrous assisted opening system. Whether you’re left-handed or right-handed, just pull back on the flipper and the Leek’s blade is ready to go to work. In addition to its 14C28N steel blade, the Leek features a handle of pure stainless steel that gives it a clean, sleek look. 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 pocket clip can be configured for tip-up or tip-down carry, and the handle is drilled to accept a lanyard.
