    RCW 9.41.250: Dangerous weapons ‚€” Penalty ‚€” Exemption for law enforcement officers.

    ...or spring blade knife, or any knife the blade of which is automatically released by a spring mechanism or other mechanical device, or any knife having a blade which opens, or falls, or is ejected into position by the force of gravity, or by an outward, downward, or centrifugal thrust or movement;...
    RCW 9.94A.602: Deadly weapon special verdict ‚€” Definition.

    The first defines what is illegal in Washington. I'm not familiar with a Kershaw Leek, so you can check the definitions here. All Washington counties will be the same.

    The second has a little more specifics regarding carrying a knife and committing a crime, but seems to only apply if you have a knife and are caught committing a crime.

    You'll need to check local municipal codes, but to my knowledge (IANAL) the county does not further restrict knives beyond what the RCW does.

    I carry a Kershaw Blur in King County and I'm careful to keep it to myself when I venture into Seattle.
