I just received a couple Kershaw Leeks with composite blades. This is a very elegant knife with a composition blade pattern that reminds me of a wild hamon. Since Samurai were typically paid with rice, the background seemed natural…
Ken and Kershaw get mega large props for this in that it will walk into an office building or other social occasion with not so much as a second look from those inclined to be “knife squeamish.” The “speed-safe” action is quick but not overpowering by any means. The blade is a 1660CB spine fused to a CPM-D2 cutting edge with the aforementioned wild wave looking pattern. This has an EXTREMELY sharp edge. The blade length is 3", overall open is just under 7”, and the closed length is 4". The frame has a lock to avoid accidental opening if you feel the need to use it.
I am personally VERY happy with this unusual yet elegant (did I say that again???) little folder.
