Kershaw 'Leek' Pocket Knife with Azurite/Malachite Stone Handle.
A masterful marriage of fine steel with natural materials! Perfectly functional and collectible, the popular Kershaw Leek Knife is inlaid stainless steel stripes and authentic azurite and malachite stone. Mined in Arizona, the semi-precious minerals are naturally occurring copper ores prized for their unusual color tones (azurite forms in blue and malachite in green). The azurite/malachite stone is painstakingly shaped, ground, polished, and assembled by artisans in Santa Fe, New Mexico and applied to the factory-new knife.
Sleek, stylishly sharp, and practical!
About the Kershaw Leek-style Knife
Closed, the knife is 4" long, the perfect scale to fit the hand, while being sized small enough for everyday carrying. The 3" combo blade (straight-edge and serrated edge) is fashioned of sharp Sandvik 14C28N stainless steel for excellent edge retention and extreme resistance to corrosion. The reverse side includes a stainless steel clip that easily attaches to outer pockets or can be used as a money clip. The pocket clip may also be removed or reversed (giving the option of carrying with tip up or tip down) with the use of a small hex key or Allen wrench. Made in the USA.
About the Kershaw SpeedSafe Assisted Opening System
The Leek series features Kershaw's SpeedSafe assisted opening system for smooth, easy opening by both right and left-handed users. It is specifically designed for sporting and work situations where one-handed opening is preferable and safer, but allows for ease of use in all everyday tasks. Simply apply pressure to the finger stud for a smooth, easy blade extension. A frame lock ensures the blade is held stable upon deployment and a sliding safety lock ensures the un-deployed blade stays securely inside the handle until the user manually releases it.
