Excluding ZT, probably this one.
And I also like this model...even though my old framelock 1660 is the one carried the most!
And a new favorite. But the question is if it can compete with my old Blur. The handle is a tad bit too short for me and it has a flipper wich isn't favorite way of opening knives. But it lacks the recurve.

Kershaw Lahar...has been discontinued...poor man's ZT!

Absolutely love my knockout (assisted or not) and composite junkyard dog. Have also found a small love affair with my s35vn link as well.
I've always been interested in a small elegant metal knife, and the leek always piqued my interest. However, I already had a delica and once the blurple g10 manix2 and pm2 came along in s110v I had to wait a bit. Now, just a few days ago the biggest and most trustworthy shop online started selling a new leek in aluminum green and black coating on the sandvik with a frame lock. I have trouble finding it online though, they didn't even have a picture up yet. However price was for half of the other aluminum colored ones, so I went and Googled the name And it appeared to be a limited edition as well? I'm impressed so far. Razor sharp out of the box, blade is centered and without play. Removable black clip and the shape is amazing. I was wondering if I lucked out because I paid like what I'd pay for a chill to compare. Knives are usually 30 a 40 perfect more expensive here. Even importing a high end model and paying shipping international and customs and I'll still save 50 euro on a blurple pm2 for example. All other leeks are around double price so I assume they forgot a 1 in front of a normal aluminum leek goes for about a hundred euros. Let alone a special edition. You guys reckon it's legit? Everything feels that way from build to box. I quite like the assisted opening. Never thought I'd be a fan but here it is.

Imho, as close to perfect as an edc folder can be.

The only Kershaw I own is the Cyro. I really like this knife a lot. Especially for the price. Has great lockup, durable and fits the hand nicely. Have thought about getting some G10 scales though. Sometimes with wet hands it can become a little slippery.
I have to say, I'm so thankful I found this forum, because I may never have known about Kershaw otherwise. I had a handful of SAKs, a few Buck and Schrade knives, and a ton of cheap flea market knives I bought while I was a teenager. Last year I discovered these forums and decided to branch out. I bought my first Leatherman, the Skeletool. This was the first knife I ever owned with a pocket clip. As someone who exclusively carried Victorinox at the time, this was life changing. Being able to take it from my pocket, open it and then put it away all with one hand was very liberating.
That's when I decided to try Kershaw. They seemed to get positive reviews, and I was curious about the assisted opening feature, and they are very cost effective. I bought my first kershaw, the Oso Sweet about 6 months ago and fell in love. I now own 15 kershaws and I really like them all. It is hard to pick a favorite, so I narrowed it down to three.
The Clash, Grinder, and Cryo.

I have several and probably will acquire at least one more fairly soon. Of those I now have, my favorites (in rank order):
Blackout, model 1550. No coincidence; also one of my first knives!
Cryo II, model 1556Ti
Chill, model 3410

The Link is a good model. I like the OSO Sweet and the Grid, but my favorite of all is the Leek
@severdhed You should definitely try a Chill. I bet you won't miss a spring inside.
Or a Skyline; the two have many similarities... blade on Skyline is Sandvik and is a bit beefier, but overall length are the same and the two knives operate the same.
Moshe ben David
they both look pretty nice. I think i like the look of the skyline a little better
I would love to own a Kershaw Leek especially the new carbon fibre scales model, but not possible due to assisted opening, which is frustrating.
