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.

The shipping was super fast and tracked the whole way. Once I received this knife I knee what I was getting but was even more satisfied then expected. This is razor sharp with an amazing tip. After a lot of use still a great edge and that needle point is still there and strong. Great quick release and the lock is nice if you want that extra comfort. Would definitely buy another one.

I used to carry a CRKT. Picked up a Leek years ago (2005) and have never looked back. I'm on me second after losing the first a few weeks ago. The only thing I really wish is that a 4" blade version was available.

Love the knife. Blade is a little thin at the tip so you can't stab hard objects like wood
