VERSATILE AND POWERFUL An outdoor knife must be hardwearing and robust. That is why we gave the OK4 a 3.0 mm extra thick blade in Japanese carbon steel hardened to 58-60 HRC, as well as an 82 mm long tang inside the handle. This makes the knife suitable for batoning.

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 slim design makes it easy to carry and its razor-sharp blade of high-performance Sandvik 14C28N means it can take care of a full range of cutting tasks. 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. For a partially serrated blade, choose the 1660ST Leek. Like other “Onion” knives, 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. In addition to its 14C28N blade, this Leek features a handle of pure stainless steel that gives it a clean, sleek look. 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.
Razor sharp and with its black 0.125″ (3.2 mm) thick blade it is one of the most sturdy knives Mora has ever made. The carbon steel blade has a black coating which protects against corrosion. You can use the back of the blade with the fire starter.
