Kershaw’s Leek series of EDC folding knives is on sale as an Amazon deal of the day, today only, 11/18/19.
There are 13 different Kershaw Leek knife varieties on sale, with 8 of them shown in the image above.
If you want a detailed look at the Kershaw Leek, check out our review here.
Here’s a summary of why you should buy one:
- Useful blade shape, sharp out of the box
- Very compact and pocketable
- Fast opening (assisted opening)
- Great quality
- Modest aesthetics
The Leek was my gateway knife, introducing me to a world of cutting tools beyond multi-tool knives, utility knives, and the two cheap Gerber knives I bought years prior. Kershaw quality was a step up from what I was used to, and my Leek was a pleasure to use.
The stainless steel (silver finish) knife is a good choice, but the anodized aluminum handle versions add a bit of color that you might prefer.
Kershaw makes the Leek knife in the USA.
These days, I prefer flipper and non-assisted opener knives. But, on pocket knives under a certain price point, the assisted opening mechanism makes for a smoother experience. I don’t mind the Leek’s mechanism since it has a small but effective manual lock, ensuring that bumps and jostles won’t open it accidentally in a bag or pack.
The Kershaw Leek is a fantastic EDC knife that’s compact and slim. If you’re interested in something a little different, we have plenty of knife reviews here.
Price: ~$31 and up
Deal ends at 3am ET 11/19/19, unless supplies sell out sooner
Update: As a reminder, you are responsible for knowing your local knife laws before buying or carrying any pocket knife. Here’s a good resource to start with. Assisted opening knives are sometimes mis-categorized and misinterpreted. When in doubt, full-manual knives are the safer choice.
In case it helps, here’s also some pics and opening video I posted to Instagram today of my (babies) teal-handle Leek:
