Gotta Chive, Boa, now a Leek. This thing rocks. Fast opening, dagger like, and razor sharp. Sleak profile that carries easier in the pocket then anything else.
Fantastic. $45 bucks.

Makes a great fist-load too! Nice little knife that would really persuade someone to seek their amusement elsewhere.......
Only have the diminutive Scallion right now - but slick lil number it is.
BOA is next on the list hopefully but have considered a Leek too. (Usually after a coupla soda's too many )

I carry the Scallion around everyday, great knife if you wear slacks. The leek I carry with jeans or shorts. Love Kershaws assisted openers. Try the Blur - very good knife as well!
I too am loving the new Leek. I bought one at the same time George did. I have been using it all day and go out of my way sometimes just to be able to use it.
There are 2 sounds in the world that strike more fear than any others. A click when you should hear a bang and a bang when you should hear a click.
Where the heck did you get that ring? I need one of those.
I made the mistake of doing a shave the arm hair tests without paying full attention. It freaking filleted a layer of skin with the hair. Holy cow.
The best thing about the Leek is that it's not too scary as to freighten the sheople.
Does the Leek have a pocket clip on it?
I've given Chives as gifts, and I have a Scallion somewhere. Call me girly, but I'd like a Rainbow Leek.

My wife carries a Leek at all times. I find it a little small for my hand, and prefer the Blur. Both excellent knives at their price points.

Ed B, yes it has a pocket clip on it.
Betty, I have seen the Rainbow Leek and think that it looks sharp. Might not look so good on a man's slacks/jeans, but it sure is cool looking.
I have a blackened Leek that is my favorite carry knife. I love the slim profile, except it's so unobtrusive that it ends up going through the wash every now and then when I forget to unclip it from my pocket.
I have some Kydex neck sheaths for the Leek. I can sell them to anyone who wants one for 20 bucks each.
It is indeed a sweet little knife -- razor sharp, needle tipped, opens like a rocket, has great fit and finish. A very classy little pocket blade.
(If you want one, just download the PDF order form from the store page of The Martialist (www.themartialist.com) and pencil in a Leek sheath for 20 bucks, then mail it in to me.)
