The purple Leek has a Sandvik 14C28N stainless steel bead-blasted blade for both edge retention and excellent corrosion resistance. It displays the jewel-tone purple anodized aluminum scales over steel liners for the handles and comes ready to open with the SpeedSafe assisted opening: great for righties and lefties using one hand and the back flipper. The jewel-tone purple anodized-aluminum handle is a fade-resistant, scratch-resistant dye that’s permanently bonded to the aluminum. So it looks good now, and will continue to look good later. The modified drop-point blade shape makes it a good slicing knife, while the slim tip gives it excellent piercing and detail work capabilities. 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. The orange Leek is a slim, easy-to-carry design that gives you plenty of cutting versatility and good looks.
