Kershaw 1660 Leek SpeedSafe® Assist Folder - Sandvik 14C28N Blade - 410 Stainless Steel Handle

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.

    I finally found the perfect EDC.

    Posted by Jim on Apr 6th 2015

    I was thinking about purchasing one of these for a long time. I watched a lot of reviews of them and decided I was going to finally get one. I was very impressed when it arrived. When you hold a leek in your hands in feels like you're holding knife equivalent of a finely crafted Swiss watch. It just feels so good in the hand. The blade if the most perfect light-duty EDC blade that I have ever seen. It slices through stuff so smoothly and effortlessly. If you collect knives like I do, and don't have a Leek in your collection, you're missing out. As always, it was a very pleasurable experience purchasing this fine knife from Cutlery Shoppe.

    knife as it should be

    The only word I can describe this knife is "perfection". Perfect deployment - fast and smooth, very sharp out of the box, solid lock up, blade is perfectly centered in closed position. I think Kershaw did a good job with this knife.
