The olive drab Leek is composed of a bead-blasted Sandvik 14C28N stainless steel blade and olive drab anodized aluminum scales on stainless steel liners. It also has the SpeedSafe assisted opening for easy one-handed ambidextrous opening. There are lots of very good reasons the Leek is one of the most popular Kershaw. For one thing, the slim blade is remarkably versatile. This modified drop-point blade shape gives it good slicing capabilities, while the slim tip lets it excel at piercing and detail work. The 3-inch blade is perfect for most day-to-day tasks. For safety, a locking liner keeps the blade locked open during use and a Tip-Lock slider locks it closed when folded. The pocket clip is reversible for tip-up or tip-down carry and the handle is drilled to accept a lanyard. This slim, easy-to-carry design, with plenty of cutting versatility just may be the perfect EDC.
