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.
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 a rainbow leek - as a matter of fact, most of the guys in our pin shooting club have them, all purchased independently of each other.
By the way, don't ignore the little lock on the closed knife. I left mine unlocked and clipped to my pocket when moving boxes in the garage. I must have bumped it just right, and the blade opened, catapulting the knife onto the garage floor. Neither me nor my pants were cut, and that rainbow finish protected the knife from damage when it hit the floor.
Kershaw already made a Leek with a S30V blade. I bought mine two or three years ago, when it was around $80. Now they are around $130. Its good to know that Kershaw are making new ones, at a better price.
TiN would be "Titanium Nitride", and it's commonly used in industrial machine tooling, so it is a hard-wearing surface. As to how it compares to the Tungsten, I'd suggest asking over at www.badlandsforums.com , or USN.
