Now your EDC-perfect Leek comes in a brand new color: jewel-tone purple. Like other Leeks, this one features a task-ready 3-inch blade, slim, easy-to-carry design, and cutting versatility. The modified drop-point blade shape makes it a good slicing knife, while the slim tip gives it excellent piercing and detail work capabilities. Built of Sandvik 14C28N high-performance stainless steel, the Leek's blade comes razor sharp out of the box and holds its edge, too. Whether you're left-handed or right-handed, it's easy to open your Leek one-handed with SpeedSafe assisted opening. A simple pull back on the ambidextrous flipper and the Leek's blade is ready to go to work. The handle is anodized aluminum; the same kind used in many aircraft and spacecraft applications. The purple color is a fade-resistant, scratch-resistant dye that's permanently bonded to the aluminum. Looks good now, looks good later, too. For safety, a locking liner keeps the blade locked open during use and a Tip-Lock slider locks it closed when folded. The pocketclip is reversible for tip-up or tip-down carry and the handle is drilled to accept a lanyard.
