Kershaw Leek with Composite Blade
Kershaw Leek Assisted Opener with Composite Steel Blade
There are few knife models as popular as the Kershaw Leek. This Leek‘s blade is a composite meaning that a truly top quality CPM-D2 tool steel is sandwiched between some softer but more corrosion resistant stainless. This gives you the most amazingly hard cutting edge at a price many times less than you would pay with a blade of solid CPM-D2 steel. The final sale price is very low for a knife of this quality. Here is some more information from Kershaw:
Stock thickness is 0.090″ and blade length is just under 3 inches (7.62 cm). Closed length is 4-1/16″ (10.3 cm). Weight is 3 oz. The index trigger serves both as an ambidextrous opening aid and as a finger guard when the knife is open. With a simple push on the index trigger, the closed knife quickly springs open using The Ken Onion Speed Safe torsion bar technology to propel the blade to an open and locked position. The dual thumb studs serve as the positive stop for the blade. The notched thumb ramp of the blade provides a secure placement for the index finger or thumb to rest on during use.
