Kershaw Knives: Leek - Carbon Fiber - CPM-154 - 1660CF
The Kershaw Leek just may be the ideal EDC. With its 3-inch blade, the Leek is a good-sized knife, but not too big. The awesome carbon fiber version is paired with a blade of CPM-154 - a premium stainless steel produced by Crucible to have superior grain structure.
The blade is a modified drop-point, so it's a good slicing knife, while the slim tip gives it piercing capability and the ability to do detailed work. The Leek features the SpeedSafe ambidextrous assisted opening system.
Whether you're left-handed or right-handed, just pull back on the blade protrusion or push outward on the thumbstud and the Leek's blade is ready to go to work. For confident blade use, a super-secure frame lock keeps the blade locked 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.

I picked this up elsewhere, but I felt compelled to put in a good word for it here. I really like the Leeks. The only ugly thing about them is the infernal slickness of the scales. This corrects that. And adds a very good blade steel as a bonus. If you like the leek, get this one. You won't be disappointed.............unless you're really wired,,,,,,er, weird.
