Kershaw Ken Onion Leek Pocket Knife (Black Plain Edge)
Everything the classic Leek has, plus a DLC coating of matte black
If you prefer your knife in basic black, this one just might be your perfect EDC. To create this matte-black look, Kershaw engineers ionize metal and deposit it on both blade and handle as a microns-thin coating. This process results in a coating known as DLC, or Diamond-Like Carbon, which is hard and scratch resistant.
With its 3-inch blade, the Leek is a good-sized knife, but not too big. The slim design makes it easy to carry and its razor-sharp blade of high-performance Sandvik 14C28N means it can take care of a full range of cutting tasks. The blade is a modified drop-point, so it's a good slicing knife, while the slim tip gives it piercing capability and the ability to do detailed work. For a partially serrated blade, choose the 1660CKTST Leek in basic black. The Leek features the SpeedSafe ambidextrous assisted opening system. Whether you're left-handed or right-handed, just pull back on the blade protrusion or push outward on the thumbstud and the Leek's blade is ready to go to work.
For confident blade use, a super-secure frame lock keeps the blade locked during use and a Tip-Lock slider locks the blade closed when folded. The pocketclip can be configured for tip-up or tip-down carry and the handle is drilled to accept a lanyard.

Super nice knife with a great edge.
Hey its an awesome knife, holds a nice edge and can be sharpened to a point at which it shaves very well!
I have had 3 Leeks now and loved each one. The basic black is a replacement for one that was stolen (so I guess they are popular with others too!). The only tiny hitch with this one was that the blade safety lock was a little stiff but I am sure that will get smoother with time. Very sharp, very quick to open, light in the pocket, and strong. What more could you ask?
