It's called a "Leek" - designed by Ken Onion. Onion, leek, get it?
I'll go away now.
I have a shorter Kershaw my wife bought me.
I carry it daily (and I just have an office job).
Extremely handy and easily opened one handed with a bit of practice, but it’s a little small for any serious work. This is my first pocket knife with a locking blade, and I’ll never go back to a non-locker.
Been thinking about getting something larger and more utilitarian for in the field, perhaps something with a fixed blade, but I got a bit distracted stocking up on guns and parts and the knife has gotten pushed down on my todo list.
I have a Kershaw Leek too. It is a very good “Assisted Opening” knife. Mine has the same handles as the picture. I took off the blade lock slide since it was always getting bumped on. With some Assisted Opening knives, like CRKT models, you have to get the blade open past 30 degrees before the assist starts to work. Those are difficult to operate and, to me they are no better than a manually opening blade.
I bought one of those Kershaw 1600’s from a store that was going out of business a while back. I think I paid about 20 bucks for it. It was mine right up to the moment Mrs L saw it.
Now it livesin her purse. I should have bought two.
I like my “Kerssaw Leek”. It’s lightweight sharp and fast opening. In black it matches my Ruger LCR perfectly and is just as reliable.
