KS1660: 1660 Leek
Kershaw Knives
 
THERE ARE LOTS OF REASONS WHY THE LEEK IS SO POPULAR

The Kershaw Leek just may be the ideal EDC. With its 3-inch blade, the Leek is a good-sized knife, but not too big. The slim design makes it easy to carry and its razor-sharp blade of high-performance Sandvik 14C28N means it can take care of a full range of cutting tasks.

The blade is a modified drop-point, so it’s a good slicing knife, while the slim tip gives it piercing capability and the ability to do detailed work. For a partially serrated blade, choose the 1660ST Leek. Like other “Onion” knives, the Leek features the SpeedSafe ambidextrous assisted opening system.

Whether you’re left-handed or right-handed, just pull back on the blade protrusion or push outward on the thumbstud and the Leek’s blade is ready to go to work. In addition to its 14C28N blade, this Leek features a handle of pure stainless steel that gives it a clean, sleek look. For confident blade use, a super-secure frame lock keeps the blade locked during use and a Tip-Lock slider locks the blade closed when folded. The pocketclip can be configured for tip-up or tip-down carry and the handle is drilled to accept a lanyard.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Lock Ease of Use, Weight, Blade Material
Cons: None
Great pocket knife-scary sharp!
I never use clips and I was going to remove it but it helps you to grip the knife to open it. It gets easier to flip open with use.

Pros: Ease of Opening, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Weight, Pocket Clip, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
Beautifully simple
Love this knife. The opening is very fast and smooth. The knife has what I think is an elegant look in its simplicity. The pocket clip is tight and the blade is sharp. I use it for everyday carry and light cutting. The tip is pretty thin though, definitely not good for prying.

Cons: None
Great Knife
I use my knives as tools. This is my new everyday pocket knife. I hunt and fish for a living (as a guide) so it's useage is sometimes an mprovision. Opens lightening fast one handed, holds an edge well and sharpens easily. Am going to order another just to have on hand. I have a Benchmark nearly the same size, but a little bulky to suit me as an everyday pocket tool and this knife is every bit as much as the Benchmark at way les the price.
