Onions are great for when you want or need to carry as little as possible. My Chive is my go to Sunday folder. My Leek Composite saw a lot of use until I bent the pocket clip, and I can barely wait to get it back into my EDC rotation.

I just love the way that Kershaw did the composite blades on the Leek.

I've been carrying the my Leek for 2+ years and love it... It's held its edge better than any knife I've owned and it's the perfect compromise of thickness, weight and blade length I've found for EDC

Still carrying one of mine daily. Size and feel is just about perfect.

Nope, he went in the other direction with the Shallot. It is a bigger knife with a 3.5" blade. I might just get one to finish out the set.

The Leeks are good blades for sure, but my only gripe is that the tip is very weak on them. Kershaw tries to avoid this problem by using softer steel so it doesn't break off (in most cases). Also they don't really have much of a belly for slicing. I think for most every day application they fit the bill nicely.

I can see your point on the tip of the blade. But that is one of the things I like about the Leek. The thin tip allows me to get into places I can't with a broader tip. And I wouldn't want to use the blade for heavy work better suited to a thicker blade.
