Ken Onion developed the SpeedSafe assisted-opening mechanism, and its application on the Leek has made this folder a staple in the EDC community. The Leek’s drop-point blade shape and slim, tapered profile allow it to excel in both slicing and detail work. This version kicks things up another notch with a CPM-154 blade and a carbon fiber handle. One of the most impressive steels on the commercial market, CPM-154 boasts excellent corrosion resistance and edge strength. The carbon fiber scales reduce weight by almost an ounce compared with the stainless steel version, making the already easy-to-carry knife even easier to take with. The clip can be positioned for tip-up or tip-down carry.
