    Kershaw wins hands down for bang for buck. How can you beat cheap, quality, assisted opening? Crkt is complete junk. Ive owned 2 and its not even a close comparison. $30 kershaw blows a $30 crkt out the water. Im a benchmade guy btw

    The Leek seems a great start fro me. HOWEVER, thank you all for your inputs. Future knives await.

    I realize that the Leek is inexpensive, but what do you apply to the blade to prevent rust? I'm thinking WD-40 here and there or some oily rag in the garage. Also, a good simple sharpener for new guy to knives please??
