Best Kershaw Leek Hunting Knife
When looking away from the more well-known companies, it’s still easy to find quality pocket knives like the Kershaw Leek Knife. 4 inches when closed, the blade is made of 14C28N steel, with an overall knife weight of 3.1 ounces. The prize in the feature list is that this is an openly ambidextrous pocket knife, with a Speed safe assisted opening system making it ideal to open in either the left or the right hand. A comfortable handle helps in the process, a Bead-blasted stainless steel that feels good in a short run through. The edge is ‘box cutter sharp’ worthy, and maintains that sharpness through the lifetime of the knife with correct usage. Kershaw offers a limited lifetime warranty on this product, rather than full.
This pocket knife is very sleek and feels good in the hands, but because of the materials that the handle is made out of long running use may get uncomfortable. Even heavy endurance tasks may irritate some user’s hands, even though Kershaw went out of its way to make it universal. The knife action is spring assisted, and with the correct Allen wrench can be adjusted and cleaned with ease. A great pocket knife this is, it just lacks some of the long term use that other products in the same price range offer.
