Just saw this thread - interesting because I was thinking I need a new pocketknife (lost my Spyderco). I ended up happening upon the Kershaw Leek and really liked the profile. Plus, it's was about $60 to boot in the stainless/carbon hybrid. The profile is what appealed to me most, because the reviews seemed to indicate it was a good profile. There are a ton of colors etc:

Mine is really nice - love the opening mechanics and it is very light and useful for all kinds of stuff.

I like Kershaw knifes. I only wish more were made in the US. I do find most of their Chinese made blades to be boring and have a hard time seeing any real differences between many of them. Had any problems with the tip of your Leek? It seems to be a common statement that it is fragile.

I have some Kershaw knives, and while I like them, I loathe liner locks and they are plenty among the Kershaws.

I think it all depends on what you use the knife for on a day to day basis. Liner locks, in my opinion, are fine for knives used for opening mail, boxes, food preparation, etc. Most liner locks are not a style I would choose for any heavy cutting. Frankly, I would not take a frame lock either, which is why I carry a small fixed blade.

The profile on my leek does taper to a thin tip, frankly I've held off on sharpening because I didn't want to alter it, which looks it would happen easily with say a 400grit stone. Very sharp ootb though. Mine says made in USA..

I have carried Kershaw skylines off and on for years. Made in USA, fairly sharp out of the box, takes and holds a nice enough edge, about the right size and weight for light pocket knife duties, and is not too costly, ~$30. I got mine for ~$25 but that was a while ago.

Nice Jeff. I figure if you guys get me into a kitchen knives addiction the least I can do is fuel your pocket knives addiction.
