Designed by world-renowned knife designer, Ken Onion, the Kershaw Leek is your ultimate sleek and slim, everyday carry knife that is super sharp! The Leek has the ability to cut through a variety of materials without any issues. Wires, tape, paper, and cardboard are just a few of the things we’ve used the Leek for and it’s held up very well.
The comfortable handle designed for the Leek fits most people’s hands fairly well and provides enough grip when using. There is also a pocket clip that Kershaw has added to the Leek that allows you to carry it either tip up or tip down. Although, if you mount it tip up, a small portion of the handle sticks out, it is still comfortable to carry and stays concealed.
One of the greatest features on the Leek is the Kershaw Speed Safe system. Extremely fast, almost as soon as your thumb applies pressure to the thumbstuds, the blade will shoot out and be ready to use. It was designed to be a one-handed knife so you are able to open the blade with only one hand.
The locking mechanism that Kershaw has used for the Leek is extremely durable and will keep the knife from opening accidentally which is an awesome safety feature.
Lastly, as the Leek is proudly made in the USA, we’re proud to recommend a durable, inexpensive, everyday carry knife that anyone can afford!

Tactical pants are cargo pants all grown up. More than just pockets, tactical pants are designed with functionality and durability in mind. Whether you are military, law enforcement, or a paramedic, you have probably had your eye on a pair of these amazing pants. What sets these pants apart from regular cargo pants? What features should you look for? Harry’s Army Surplus is here to give you the information you need!
The first thing most people notice are all the wonderful pockets. Tactical pants are designed with use in mind, so there are many different pockets in all sorts of configurations. There are places for your cell phone, wallet, knives, flashlights, tools, pretty much anything you need there is a pocket for it.
Tactical pants are constructed to take a beating. Reinforced stitching and bar tack stitches help ensure the pants don’t rip easily. Bar tack stitches are used to strengthen stress points, preventing tears and rips in pockets or seams. Gussets are triangular shaped pieces of material sewn into places like the crotch to improve fit and movement. Areas of heavy wear such as knees and seat are usually double reinforced to reduce wear and tear. A few pants come treated with Teflon™ to prevent staining from coffee, water, or even blood.

Truly unique gifts are a pleasure to give and receive. You may spend hours trying to decide what the perfect gift is for a special occasion. One of the best gifts is one that is useful while providing protection to your loved one.
Pepper spray is a self defense tool that is necessary for almost everyone. Harry’s Army Surplus carries one of the most unique and useful pepper spray tools around. The Sabre Smartguard Pepper Spray iPhone 4 case allows recipients to protect their iPhones and themselves.
The iPhone 4 pepper spray case is an excellent gift choice for:
- Young People
- Anyone at All!
One of the best ways for a person to protect him- or herself is to have self defense spray ready for would-be attackers. Unfortunately, many of the people who carry pepper spray either place it in a hard-to-reach location or completely forget to carry it. With the Pepper Spray iPhone case, self defense is always close at hand. Better still, even though the pepper spray baton is conveniently located, it is also secure. This means that the user runs practically no risk of an accidental spray.
