This modified drop-point blade shape gives it good slicing capabilities, whilst the slim tip lets it excel at piercing and detail work. The blade steel is high-performance Sandvik 14C28N stainless that sharpens to a razor edge and holds the edge for a good long time. The 3-inch blade is perfect for most day-to-day tasks. Leek lovers also love the fast and easy opening provided by Speed Protected assisted opening. Whether you’re left-handed or right-handed, a simple pull back on the ambidextrous flipper or push outward on the thumb stud and the Leeks blade is ready to go to work. But the newest and most obvious thing about this Leek is the olive drab care for color. The color is eye-catching and different, but also discrete. The olive drab color is fade-resistant, scratch-resistant and permanently bonded to the anodized aluminum—so it looks good now and looks good later, too.
