If you prefer your knife in basic black, this one just might be your perfect EDC. To create this matte-black look, metal is ionized and deposited on both blade and handle as a microns-thin coating. This process results in a coating known as DLC, or Diamond-Like Carbon, which is hard and scratch resistant. This handsome Leek is all stainless steel with a sturdy frame lock. It opens one-handed with SpeedSafe assisted opening.
