KS1660OL: 1660OL Leek, Olive Drab
Kershaw Knives

There are lots of very good reasons the Leek is one of the most popular Kershaws. For one thing, the slim blade is remarkably versatile. This modified drop-point blade shape gives it good slicing capabilities, while the slim tip lets it excel at piercing and detail work. The blade steel is high-performance Sandvik 14C28N stainless that sharpens to a razor edge and holds the edge for a good long time. The 3-inch blade is perfect for most day-to-day tasks. 

Leek lovers also love the fast and easy opening provided by SpeedSafe assisted opening. Whether you’re left-handed or right-handed, a simple pull back on the ambidextrous flipper or push outward on the thumbstud and the Leek’s blade is ready to go to work.

But the newest and most obvious thing about this Leek is the new olive drab handle color. The color is eye-catching and different, but also discrete. The olive drab color is fade-resistant, scratch-resistant, and permanently bonded to the anodized aluminum—so it looks good now and looks good later, too.

For safety, a locking liner keeps the blade locked open during use and a Tip-Lock slider locks it closed when folded. The pocketclip is reversible for tip-up or tip-down carry and the handle is drilled to accept a lanyard. This slim, easy-to-carry design, with plenty of cutting versatility just may be the perfect EDC.
  • 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.
  • Liner Lock - Locks the blade open during use; one side of the knife’s steel “liner,” the steel plate to which the handle scales are attached, moves into position behind the blade to securely lock it open.
  • Reversible - Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.
  • Made In The USA - When you see this on one of the knives, it means it was made in their Tualatin, Oregon manufacturing facility by skilled Kershaw knifemakers.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, None
Cons: Pocket Clip
Small & light
I just love Kershaw. Out of the box it was shaving sharp. Very sharp tip so u have to be careful when opening & closing the knife. The lock is also useful to prevent it from accidentally open in your pocket. The only cons is that this knife is not deep carry, it will stick out from your pocket about 1/2 inch i guess. Highly recommended for EDC!

Cons: None
Perfect for its intended use
I have this leek, but with the black blade. I have always been a Spyderco guy, but when I got this knife I ended up carrying it more often than any of my other knives. It's small and light, but not so small that it has an issue doing anything. The only issue I had with it was the tip of the blade. It is very sharp and thin, if you aren't careful it could chip off. However, I see this knife as more of a precision EDC, so if you're doing anything with it that could chip the tip of the blade off, you should probably be using a different knife anyway. The grip is a little slick, as it's just smooth aluminum, but it does feel good. I have heard people say the blade steel is of a lower quality than most higher-end knives. This may be true, but as I said before I consider it a precision EDC, so it doesn't concern me. It sharpens well and holds the edge fine as far as I'm concerned. You will not be disappointed if you're looking for a small EDC.
