Kershaw Leek is the greatest knife i've ever owned. If you break it, send it back, they will either fix it or send you a new one. The SpeedSafe opening is amazing.
Ken onion Leek by Kershaw:
Amazing knife. slim, light, almost all metal. Tight clip. Opens lightning fast. Great price for what you get.
The Ken Onion Leek Folding Knife has my vote. Leatherman Wave if you're looking for a heavier duty knife & multi-tool.
Edit: One of the real reasons I love this knife is that they're ~$40. I've yet to find any comparable quality for that price.
No, for a tool. My pocket knife is one of the few things that I have on me all the time. And it gets lots of use. I prefer this one. It's kind of a 'gentleman's knife.'
I was able to jump on the waitlist. Wonder if I will get in!
Went with the non serrated: [link]
Only $6 cheaper than normal...Looking at price history it has actually been a lot cheaper on sale, down to around $26.
Since you mention carrying in a purse, I'd throw in the Kershaw Leek here too; it's an assist, has a nice steel (14C28N, the same as the Skyline and better than the others) and the tip safety, while not overkill for carrying it clipped to a pocket, could be useful if it's getting jostled around inside a purse to prevent it from drifting open and giving you a nasty surprise when you reach for it.
Amazon ships the standard Leek to Canada.
The Leek was designed by Ken Onion, so every Leek is a Ken Onion Leek, though there are lots of variations of this model (steels, handle materials, even blade shapes, etc) and aftermarket customizations.
My wife likes her Kershaw Leek.
The Kershaw Leek is all-metal, and good quality for the price. If you look around you can find them in a million different colors.
