I know what I want now: a Kershaw Leek with a G10 handle. Now I've just got to find a European store that sells it or a US store that ships to Europe. (Which is not that easy. For example, BladeHQ and Amazon don't ship knives to Europe, even when they're perfectly legal.)

I know you want a Kershaw... but saw this in the store the other day...

It's a Benchmade Emissary 470-1. I only handled it for a couple minutes, but seemed like a decent knife, although I would consider it a "light duty" knife, but similar in size/profile to a Leek. (I do think the Leek is more durable).

S30V / Assisted Opening / 3 in. blade. And I could close it one handed (I know you mentioned this before, but it's small enough it's easy to manipulate).

If you're feeling rich, spring for the 'Gold Class" version...

It's a great and particularly usable knife. A real pity I'm on a "knife diet" right now...

Mark, don't know if you found the knife you were looking for or not, but wanted to tell you of another great knife.........my EDC is a Kershaw Echelon, and I have been very pleased with it. I have been carrying it daily for over a year now with no issues.

It has the speed safe assisted opening, very thin and lightweight with green translucent G10 handles, has a nice belly to the blade, with a very stout / strong spine, no flipper, but does have a thumbstud , closes easily with one hand, with a 3" blade, with multi-position pocket clip.........clip is a little smaller than I like, but usable.
