The Kershaw Leek is the winner of the Best Buy award for 2013. This award is presented to a product that earns an extremely high score in our performance tests and comes at an affordable price. Jediah Porter notes, "In our rigorous testing of a select group of the some of the best pocket knives, we found the Kershaw Leek to represent the cream of the crop at an attractive price-point. We granted the Leek our Best Buy award due to its usefulness, durability and reasonable price."
The Victorinox Classic SD wins the Top Pick award for 2013. This award is given to a product that excels at a specific application. According to Jediah Poter, "This knife virtually disappears on your keychain, but roars to functional life whenever you need to tackle some light-duty task. Even as compared to much larger and much more expensive knives, The Victorinox Classic SD fares very well. It is nearly the smallest in our test, but only one knife has more features. The features that are present on the Classic are each very useful and functional, despite their tiny stature."
