    I have a Leek and a Chive. Great knives at a great price. They are really great slicers and the assisted opening is very smooth. I don't carry them that often since the handles are too slippery for my tastes, which is why I would not think of them as a SD blade in the slightest.

    Perfect light duty knife. Not so good for SD or rough use.

    I love Kershaw knives. Even their chinese made knives are very good quality for the money. I picked up a Vapor III for $14.99 at Cabela's today. I figured my wife could use a new folder to carry with her. Momma was happy.

    I have a Blur and a Leek, they are two of my most carried knives. I usually carry the Blur (and my XDm 3.8") with casual pants and the Leek (and my LCR .357) with fancy pants.

    Loved my Leek till the tip broke. They definitely make the point too slim.

    Now my edc is a CRKT M-16 10kz

    I love Kershaw as well. I think they are a great value. I currently have an RJII and a Clash. They are my favorite EDC knives. Once, I tried to pry some thin steel bars, very slightly, with the Clash and I snapped it in half. A few months later I decided to send it in to Kershaw explaining what I had done. No response for a few weeks, as expected from the explanation on their site. Then a package arrived in the mail from Kershaw USA with a brand new knife. That won them a lifetime customer. Awesome customer service. I'll certainly buy other brands, but I do have some respect for Kershaw products.

    I have a Leek and love it. Sleek, sharp and easy assisted opening. It goes with me every day.
