KS1660CB: Ken Onion Leek with Composite Edge

Kershaw Knives

The Leek drop point blade is made of a patent pending composite steel with a spine of 14C28N fused with a cutting edge of CPM-D2. The blade design shows the interface of the two steels. The thing to consider is that, if the entire blade was made of this super steel, it would cost 2 or 3 times what this knife costs. By combining the steels this way, you get all the benefit of the D2 steel, at this fantastic price.

Sword makers have long known that the ideal blade is often a combination of different steels, each chosen for its unique properties. That’s the idea behind Kershaw’s composite blade knives, including the Composite Leek.

The two steels in Kershaw’s new composite blade knives retain their individual qualities, yet interact with each other and work in concert. The patent-pending technology that makes the modern composite blade possible delivers exactly the type of steel you need where you need it.

The Composite Leek offers the pocket-perfect size and styling of the Ken Onion Leek combined with our high-performance composite blade. It features the same two high-performance steels married in an even higher performance blade. The blade is paired with an all-stainless-steel handle for durability and good looks.

The index trigger serves both as an ambidextrous opening aid and as a finger guard when the knife is open. With a simple push on the index trigger, the closed knife quickly springs open using The Ken Onion Speed Safe torsion bar technology to propel the blade to an open and locked position. The dual thumb studs serve as the positive stop for the blade. The notched thumb ramp of the blade provides a secure placement for the index finger or thumb to rest on during use.

Please note, due to the nature of the steels involved, there is a slight visual imperfection near the tip of the blade. This does not in any way affect the performance of this knife.

Outstanding every day carry choice
I am 76 years of age and have been a buyer and user of fine knives since I was old enough to use them. The Kershaw Leek is among my favorite EDC choices and one I carry most. I like everything about the Leek. The design, the speed safe feature, the wharncliff blade, everything.I gave two of my early Leeks to my son. The model I carry is the 1660G10. I like G10 handle material because it wears well. The blade steel is S30V. I also have the 1660CF model with a CPM154 blade. The pocket clip is moveable allowing for tip up or top down carry-users choice. I highly recommend this knife. I blade shape serves well for anything I have needed on a daily basis. For me it's all PRO and no CON.

Kershaw 1660CB Leek Assisted 3" Composite knife
I had ordered the same basic knife about 10-years ago, and wanted the newer version of the same knife minus the serrated edge. Now I keep one in my work uniform pants while on-duty and one in my jeans at home. As an emergency responder I've used this knife in multiple emergency situations as well, the last cutting a woman who rolled her vehicle on I-40 and was hanging upside down from her seat-belt. It's easy to carry & delploy. I love the way if fits in my pocket without being in the way because I HATE things in my pockets. The blade is as sharp as a razor blade & if it lasts like my other one, I'll use it for years to come as well.
