If you prefer your knife in anything but basic, this black DLC 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.
- Everything the classic Leek has, plus a DLC coating of matte black; Made in the USA
- Sandvik 4C28N high-performance stainless steel blade holds its edge, resharpens easily; partially serrated blade easily cuts through rope and other fibrous material
- Fossil walrus ivory single sided handle
- SpeedSafe® assisted opening with convenient flipper; Tip-Lock secures blade when closed
Prehistoric woolly mammoth ivory is found in Alaska, Canada, Russia, and Siberia, and may range in age from 10,000 to 200,000 years. The “bark” or exterior of the fossil mammoth is naturally colorful due to the minerals surrounding the tusk. These minerals seep into the fossil over tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of years to create a permanent stain on the material. Each pocket knife is a one of a kind due to these unique fossil materials.
We do not engrave the black coated blade on this knife.
