KS1660VIB: 1660VIB Leek, Rainbow
Kershaw Knives
 
The minute you take the Rainbow Leek out of your pocket, people will start to stare. And who can blame them? The Rainbow Leek is nothing short of spectacular. In fact, when it first came out, it was chosen for Blade Magazine's Overall Knife of the Year award.

The Rainbow Leek's amazing multi-colored finish comes from a process known as PVD or Physical Vapor Disposition. Metals are ionized with a high-current, low-voltage arc then placed in a vacuum chamber along with the products to be coated—in this case, the blade and handle of the Rainbow Leek. A negative voltage is introduced and a micro-thin layer of metal permanently coats the blade and handle. Ionizing different metals creates different coatings. In this case, the metal is titanium oxide and oxygen is also introduced into part of the process. The combination makes the brilliant rainbow colors you see on the Rainbow Leek (as well as the Rainbow Scallion and Rainbow Chive). Like all Leeks, the Rainbow Leek has a practical 3-inch blade, which makes it 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. For a partially serrated blade, choose the 1660VIBST Rainbow Leek. The Rainbow Leek features the SpeedSafe ambidextrous assisted opening system for easy one-handed open. Whether you're left-handed or right-handed, just pull back on the blade protrusion or push outward on the thumbstud and the Rainbow Leek's blade is ready. 

The Rainbow Leek's handle is pure stainless steel and it offers a super-secure frame lock, as well as a Tip-Lock slider, which locks the blade closed when folded, for additional safety.
Features
  • Flipper: May be used on either manual or assisted opening knives. The "flipper" is a protrusion on the back of the blade that the user can pull back on, or flip, in order to move the blade easily out of the handle.
  • SpeedSafe: Assists you to open any SpeedSafe knife quickly and easily with a manual push on the thumbstud or pull back on the flipper; built into many Kershaw best sellers.
  • Frame Lock: A portion of the handle (the knife frame) moves behind the blade to lock it into position during use. This is a safety feature of the knife.
  • Reversible: Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.

Cons: None
Beautiful
I have wanted one of these knives for years but was afraid it would be gaudy and garish. I finally ordered one and just opened the box. What an incredible knife! not only is the knife itself an example of outstanding production quality but the colors on the anodized metal are these deeply saturated purples blues and violets that truly run a spectrum of smoothly blended rainbow colors. Let me tell you this is one incredibly gorgeous well made knife.
