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..Read more ›
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.
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.

Great to carry on a daily basis. I can clip it in my back pocket and not have it bother me when I sit down. Also the sharpest knife I've ever had straight out of the box.Published 1 day ago by Erick Gabriel
