The first thing you'll notice about the Composite Blade Leek I well, the composite blade. The wavy copper line you see running through the blade is the brazing that permanently joins the razor-sharp, durable D2 cutting edge to the Sandvik 14C28N spine. The combination of these two steels enables us to give you a blade that not only looks cool, but also provides the best of two steel worlds. On the edge is a high-carbon, high-chromium D2 steel capable of taking and holding an incredible edge. On the spine is high-performance Sandvik 14C28N. With a Composite Blade, each type of steel is allowed to do what it does best. The composite blade Leek shares its 3 inch blade, slim, easy-to-carry design, and versatility with other Leeks. The modified drop-point blade shape makes it a good slicing knife, while the slim tip gives it excellent piercing and detail work capabilities. The Speedsafe assisted opening system makes it easy to open the knife one-handed, whether you're a lefty or a righty. A simple pull back on the ambidextrous flipper and the Leek's composite blade is ready to go to work. This Leek also features a handle of pure stainless steel. A super-secure frame lock keeps the blade locked open during use and a Tip-Lock slider locks the blade closed when folded. The pocketclip can be configured for tip-up or tip-down carry and the handle is drilled to accept a lanyard.
- Speedsafe assisted opening - assists you to open any SpeedSafe knife quickly and easily with a manual push on the thumbstud or pull back on the flipper, built into many Kershaw best sellers
- Flipper - may be used on either manual or assisted opening knives, the flipper is a protrusion on the back of the blade that the user can pull back on, or flip, in order to move the blade easily out of the handle
- Frame lock - a portion of the handle (the knife frame) moves behind the blade to lock it into position during use, this is a safety feature of the knife, tip-lock slider
- Reversible pocketclip (right tip-up/tip-down)- pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries
- Composite - a blade composed of several types of steel brazed together in a permanent joint, the technology enables Kershaw to use steel known for edge holding on the edge, strength on the spine for the best of both worlds
