Kershaw Black Stonewash Leek - 1660SWBLK
Made in the USA

Remember when you said, "I wish Kershaw made a plain black Leek with a stonewashed blade"?...Well, they made it!

Like other Leeks, it features a task-ready 3-inch blade, slim, easy-to-carry design, and cutting versatility. The modified drop-point blade shape makes it a good slicing knife, while the slim tip gives it excellent piercing and detail work capabilities. Built of Sandvik 14C28N high-performance stainless steel, the Leek's blade comes razor sharp out of the box and holds its edge, too. Kershaw gave it a roughened up, stonewashed finish to hide scratches and for general cool looks. Of course, it also has SpeedSafe assisted opening for fast and easy one-handed opening. Left- or right-handed, a simple pull back on the ambidextrous flipper or push outward on the thumbstud and the Leek's stonewashed blade is ready to go to work.

A sturdy liner lock keeps the blade 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.

Features of the Kershaw Black Stonewash Leek 1660SWBLK

Blade Material: Sandvik 14C28N Steel
Kershaw worked with Sandvik Steel, one of the world's leading manufacturers of stainless steel and special alloys, to produce this high-performance steel. Increased nitrogen in the formula enables 14C28N to provide both excellent corrosion resistance and the ability to be hardened to 58-60 Rockwell. Sandvik calls 14C28N the overall highest performing knife steel in the world that still maintains the productivity benefit of being fine-blankable.

Blade Finish: Stonewashed
To stonewash the blade, it is tumbled with ceramic "stones," which gives the blade surface a desirable roughened or scuffed look. The look can be pronounced or subtle. The finish helps hide scratches and fingerprints.

Handle Material: 6061-T6 Black Anodized Aluminum
Anodizing makes aluminum stronger and enables Kershaw to add scratch and fade resistant color to knife handles.

SpeedSafe
SpeedSafe is a patented system that assists the user to smoothly open any SpeedSafe knife with a manual push on the blade's thumb stud or pull back on the blade protrusion. SpeedSafe is built into many of Kershaw's best-selling knives.

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.

Liner Lock
The most common of today's blade-locking systems. The handle consists of two metal plates (the "liner") on either side of the blade. When the knife is opened, one side of the knife's liner, often called the lockbar, butts up against the backend of the blade (the tang) and prevents the blade from closing. The lockbar is manufactured so that it angles toward the interior of the knife, creating a bias for the locked position. To close the knife, the knife user applies manual force to move the lockbar to the side so that the blade is unblocked and can be folded back into the handle. The liner lock provides a secure and convenient way to make using a Kershaw folding knife even safer.

Tip-Lock
The tip-lock is a simple slider that, when engaged, ensures the blade will not accidentally open. It's especially helpful in cases where the knife might be juggled in a briefcase, backpack, or purse.

Reversible Pocketclip - Tip-Up/Tip-Down
A reversible pocketclip enables the user to position the clip for either knife tip-up or tip-down carry.

Made in the USA
This knife is made in Kershaw's Tualatin, Oregon manufacturing facility by skilled Kershaw knifemakers.
