The stonewash black Leek is a 3-inch stonewashed Sandvik 14C28N blade and black anodized aluminum scales over steel liners for the handle. The SpeedSafe assisted opening makes this knife ready-to-open and easy-to-use with the back flipper and one hand. The modified drop-point blade shape makes it a good slicing knife, while the slim tip gives it excellent piercing and detail work capabilities. Kershaw gave it a roughened up, stonewashed finish to hide scratches and for general cool looks. A sturdy liner lock keeps the blade 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.
