    Got the Leek

    Got to Bass Pro about five minutes after opening, went upstairs to check out the knives after holding several, the Leek just felt better in my hand. Boy! Kershaw believes in selling a sharp knife, don't they?

    The Chive/Scallion/Leek is a great knife. It's very sharp and the assisted opening is just a pleasure to use. My only gripe is that the metal handle doesn't give you a lot of traction for gripping, but then again, it's not really a self defense knife.

    +1 I also have a Chive, Scallion, and Leek. All three razor sharp. Love the assisted opening. Good choice!

    I have the rainbow color version of the Leek, and I have to say its my favorite knife. Congrats on your purchase of a true american classic.
    God bless our troops!

    Yup, they're sharp alright! Carry some extra bandaids!

    If it's grip you want on the Leek, then look at the Leek 1660G10. G-10 grips for traction and S30V blade; this little knife has sliced me without me even noticing, it's that sharp!

    Needless to say, it's the best folder I've ever owned, and that's saying something coming from an Eagle Scout!

    That G10 handle looks great. I don't usually EDC a Leek since I carry an Emerson CQC-10 or Benchmade Kulgera, but that looks like a great choice for Leek fans.

    The Leek is great. I bought a few, and gave them out as gifts. My girlfriend uses hers everyday at work, as do I.
