Santa brought me a new kershaw leek knife for Christmas. It’s my new work knife. I’m currently placed at a water treatment plant, new construction, we’re installing electrical. The leek is a sleek knife that performs well for intricate cutting and slicing tasks. It’s narrow tip is excellent for precision jobs, and the flat blade edge slices very well. The assisted opening feature is nice, although you do have to overcome the spring when you close it. However, it does seem like a more delicate blade that’s made for medium or light duty tasks. I’m still carrying my old beater knife for the harder tasks that could break the tip of the leek. Overall I’m very satisfied with the knife and I’d recommend it for light and medium duty work tasks. I’m pleased that it’s made in the USA.
