The leek is such a great knife! I was just looking at the black washed one last night thinking of reasons to justify buying the exact same knife in a different color lol

Impressive knife

Kershaw Leek Review

Wrap upThe Kershaw Leek is a true gentleman’s EDC knife. Its stunningly simple and sleek appearance makes it look just as apropos sliding into a jeans pocket or a suit pocket, and the knife is discreet enough not to draw too much attention if you pull it out to slice the olives in your cocktail.
