Product Description

The Leek Knife by Kershaw. The Leek series includes some of our most popular knives. And no wonder. Kershaw's Leeks offer Ken Onion's distinctive design as well as the SpeedSafe ambidextrous assisted opening system. With SpeedSafe, the user can smoothly and easily deploy the blade with one hand, either left or right. Leeks come in a variety of handle styles, some with technologically advanced coatings for enhanced performance. For example, the bead-blasted stainless steel handle offers strength and beauty. A handle with black Tungsten DLC coating produces a Leek with a non-reflective surface. For lightweight and a one-of-a-kind look, choose our "smoked" double-anodized aluminum finish in two colors. Or choose our new Pink Leek with it's fashionable pink anodized aluminum handle, the Rainbow Leek with its titanium oxide coating that produces a highly scratch resistant, brilliant, rainbow finish. Also new in 2007 is our Random Leek with a modified Tanto blade for cutting power and chromium nitride coating for hardness and corrosion resistance. For ease of carrying, all Leeks include a reversible/removable pocket clip. FEATURES of the Leek Knife by Kershaw SpeedSafe lets you quickly and easily open the knife with a flick of the flipper A portion of the handle moves behind the blade to lock it into position during use Thumb Stud adds grip Pocket Clip lets you clip this to your pocket or whatever SPECIFICATIONS: Steel: 420HC stainless-steel Handle: 410 stainless-steel Blade Length: 3 in.

I purchased this knife at a gun & knife show three years ago and have carried it everyday since. I've owned ($60.00) Spyderco and ($150.00) Benchmade (Automatic) knives, but this Stainless Leek model is slimmer, quicker to draw and has a better clip than both of these knives. Because of the unique spring action mechanism, many think it's an "automatic" knife. My only recommendation is to occasionally lubricate/clean the mechanism to keep the action quick. I did have to tighen the allen screw to keep the safety from slipping "on" in my pocket. I will be ordering a second one at this price. This is a very well designed, well made pocket knife.

I received my Leek 10 days later... and I love it~! On first sight, I decided to reverse the belt clip but the screws came out completely stripped and unusable. A web form on Kershaw's site was answered within the hour and new screws arrived (free) with belt clip (which I didn't need) in 3 days time.

Been carrying the Kershaw 1660 Leek 24/7 and have found it to be a "gentleman's knife" due to it's difficulty gripping in adverse conditions. This is one of my first EDC knives with a non-serrated blade and I like it's practical edge. It's silver color and smaller size make it less conspicuous to the public eye.

The 1660 is fast to open and cuts cleanly out of the box - SHARP~!
It's sharp due to the factory sharpening method which is micro-serrations.. basically, as all blades under close inspection are serrated, the factory technique can use some polishing but comes wicked sharp.

I enjoy carrying and using this blade. My comments would be:
* It's not for wet hands. It takes a firm pinching grip between thumb and fingers while activating blade... which at times of haste comes very close to touching my palm... so it's not a knife to pull out and use in a hurry. Yes, it's very quick but this is mostly a "pocket knife" with the novelty feature of assisted opening. It's not a tactical folder and it's not easily held for demanding tasks... it's shiny and slippery and should be used for EDC common tasks.
* The belt clip makes the knife ride quite high on the pocket, revealing a lot more knife than I'm accustomed to. I do like the accessibility but it plainly shows. With clip reversed, so it rides tip up, it rides even higher..

I have a lot of knives, among them Benchmade, Beretta, CRKT ... but this Ken Onion Leek may be THE sharpest knife I have ever purchased. Aside from all the other great features you will read about in these reviews (they're all true) it simply has a razor edge that is a box cutter's equal. I have been developing my knife sharpening technique with a diamond stone and a steel for years now, and I can put an amazing edge on a knife. But not quite like this - this is a true razor's edge. It starts to cut you the instant you test it.

I got my Leek because I wanted an every day carry knife with a "stay closed" safety, so it only opens when I want it to. I wear my knife hanging off a carabiner with my keys, and sometimes my old Beretta would come open when sliding into or out of my truck, for example. So I love that this has a tip safety. And for sure, the Speed Safe torsion opener is waaaaay cool. It's the closest thing to a switchblade I've ever tried.

And major kudos to Kershaw for really putting a pro edge on this blade. A "criminal edge" - because it's "sharper than the law should allow". Have fun and be careful.

I've just received this knife so I can't review it's durability or utility yet. This review is focused solely on flipping the pocket clip since I was unable to find a review that showed the knife in both carry positions (tip-up and tip-down). The knife comes in the configuration shown in the product picture (tip-down) but I prefer to carry tip-up. Some reviews were complaining about the screws being stripped when they tried to flip the pocket clip so I was afraid there was permanent thread locker (loctite) on the threads or something.

Turns out there was no thread locker on the threads of the screws holding in the pocketclip (see pic) and they came out without striping at all. This is not to say they were loose or at risk of coming out on their own. Turns out if you RTFM (pic included) the screws holding the pocket clip are a T6 (a torx bit, NOT AN ALLEN/HEX WRENCH). The manual goes even further to say that if you attempt to use an Allen wrench that it will strip the screws. I have to assume the instances of these screws being stripped are all due to user error.

The knife rides higher out of the pocket in the tip-up configuration and I've included photos of each and the disassembled pieces. The gap in the frame/liner lock is visible if you switch the clip to carry tip-up. Also the open end of the pocket clip is much closer to the end of the knife in the tip-up configuration, making it slightly more difficult to slide the material of your pocket into the clip. Non of these are deal breakers and I will continue to carry it tip-up but I wanted to share it all with you in case you were considering turning the clip around as well.
