Kershaw Crafts MagnaCut Tribute to In-House Comic Book Series

Kershaw has created the first version of its famous Leek knife with MagnaCut steel, for a new limited edition inspired by their sci-fi comic book side project, The Edge.

How old is the Leek at this point? Believe it or not the Ken Onion classic is 23 years old, having originally released all the way back at the turn of the millennium. If knife design, like steels, comes in generations, then the Leek is at least a generation older than the stuff coming out today. Despite this, it remains a competitive, capable, unique everyday carry knife, thanks to the rock solid design Ken Onion came up with all those years ago. It looks cool, with a blade shape that, even today, stands out from the pack visually but functions in the same intuitive way as any basic drop or clip point shape. The snappy opening action is something every knife enthusiast, even if they aren’t normally a fan of assisted knives, should try out at some time in their collecting career.

The Leek comes in both liner and frame lock varieties; the Edge model is a frame lock

Speaking of steel generations, the major selling point on this special version of the Leek is, of course, the presence of MagnaCut super steel. It’s a great choice for the Leek, complimenting its everyday carry proclivities perfectly with an enthusiast-approved performance metrics, especially in terms of edge retention. As a daily cutter, the MagnaCut Leek should go for long stretches without the need for much maintenance.

Kershaw fans will recognize the logo on this Leek’s handle; it refers to The Edge, a five-issue sci-fi comic book the company began in 2020 with artist Joe Zavaletta. If you haven’t read it, this Leek comes with a graphic novel-style omnibus edition of The Edge, which seems like the perfect way to catch up on the adventures of action hero brothers Zero and Shaw.

The Edge Leek is available now, directly and exclusively from Kershaw.
