You know the Kershaw Leek. You might even have one in your pocket right know. You’ve probably never seen a Kershaw Leek quite like this one before though:
This is the Kershaw Leek Composite. The whole knife, blade and handle alike, feature Kershaw’s BlackWash finish. This Leek has a 3-inch blade that’s made of Sandvik 14C28N and D2 steel. The overall length is 7 inches and the weight is 3 ounces. The size and weight make this a great candidate for an everyday carry knife, but it’s got some personality that you don’t often see in your average spring assisted knife.
The Leek is a Ken Onion design, and it’s a classic Kershaw blade with a new look that’s working really well for it. The knife features a frame lock, so the lockup is solid, and it opens with Kershaw’s SpeedSafe technology.
If you’re in the market for a new spring-assisted knife or an everyday carry in general, get yourself a Kershaw Leek Composite Assisted Opening Knife. It’s a classic made by an outstanding company, and lucky you—it just so happens that you can get it from Blade HQ. Get yours today!
If you’re really on top of things in the knife world, then you know BLADE Show just happened. Shot Show happens in January and that’s where manufacturers typically showcase most of their new product for the year. However, BLADE Show is obviously more geared toward knife manufacturers, and there’s still some new product that’s released at the show. This year, there was actually quite a … Continue reading
You’re probably already familiar with the Benchmade Mini Barrage, but this is a new, limited edition Mini Barrage that’s pretty awesome: This Mini Barrage is new for 2014, and it’s got all of the nice features you’d expect to see in the Mini Barrage—like the AXIS locking mechanism—but its handle is a little bit different than what you find on the original Mini Barrage. On … Continue reading
The H&K Nitrous Blitz is a pretty sweet spring assist. Honestly, my favorite thing about this knife has got to be the swedge—it looks sick, and it sets the knife apart from your normal everyday folding knife in terms of looks. In terms of function, though, the Nitrous Blitz is equally amazing. The knife uses a “spring assisted Nitrous mechanism” that is “built directly into … Continue reading
I don’t think I’ve met a knife enthusiast who doesn’t like Zero Tolerance. Zero Tolerance knives are extremely tough and functional, and when you pair that with a great design, you’ve got yourself a pretty amazing blade. While I’d say that ZT makes more manual folding knives than anything else, the company also makes some really great spring assisted knives. Some of them you’ve already … Continue reading

It has excellent action and materials, and it’s a great option for your everyday carry. … Continue reading
I know you’ve probably had your fill of SHOT Show updates, so this will be the last one for a while. I’ve already covered several new Kershaw blades for 2014, but there are a few more I wanted to show you. BlackWash seems to be Kershaw’s new finish of choice for this year, and can you blame them? BlackWash looks particularly awesome, and it’s featured … Continue reading
The Kershaw Camber is another new knife you can look forward to in 2014! The Camber has a stonewashed premium S30V steel blade, so it has great toughness and wear resistance, but the hardness is also quite good. The overall length comes to 7.20 inches with a 4-inch handle and a 3-inch blade. The aluminum handle has great texturing that provides a secure grip, and … Continue reading
SOG had quite a bit of new product at SHOT Show for 2014. One of the company’s new spring assisted knives for this year is the SOG Zoom: The Zoom is pretty similar in appearance to the SOG Tac, particularly in regard to the shape and material of the handle (aluminum). The Zoom also has the addition of a smaller index groove for added control. … Continue reading
There were tons of awesome spring assisted knives from SHOT Show, and I’ll be going over lots of product from the show in the coming weeks. Kershaw in particular had lots of new things. You’ve already seen the new versions of the Cryo and Cryo II that are coming out in 2014, but here are some more Kershaws you can look forward to in 2014. … Continue reading
