Kershaw Leek Folding Knife
This is my 5th Kershaw and my 2nd Leek. They are the best knives Ive ever used. My favorite feature about the leek is the method of opening it. Im left handed and one of my previous Kershaw knives was hard to open with my left hand. The Leek is prefect for both right and left handed operation. Kershaw knives are the sharpest out of the box ive ever used and they stay sharp longer, much longer. Only reason i dont still have my first four is that Ive lost them. Never broke one. Highly recommend them.

A Great Pocket Knife
I have owned two Kershaw leeks now. The first was lost after a couple of years of use while the second one is going through its second year now. I am very satisfied with quality and durability of this particular model of Kershaw, which is made in the USA. Its extremely sharp right out of the box, and it holds its' edge for quite a while. The straight blade allows for the knife to be easily sharpened the full length of the blade. The only negative thing I can say about the knife is the possibility of breaking the extremely pointy tip (but I have never done that with either of the two knifes I own), however if used like a knife and not a pry tool this can be an advantage as well. I have owned other brands of pocket knifes in the past but as I stand right now I will remain a Kershaw customer!

Good Eough For Gibbs
Mine is the serrated model which I've owned for about 5 years. In fact where the blade meets the handle when the knife is open it says Oct 08. I was watching NCIS one night and they showed a closeup of Gibbs knife. Lo and behold it was identical to mine. You could even see the "Kershaw" on the handle. Easiest opening knife I have ever used outside of an push button stiletto. The blade is so sharp when you get it that you could give yourself a shave.

I spent a lot time looking for another knife I liked enough to replace my Gerber AR 3.0 and the Kershaw Leek 1660 is definitely it. I love the sleek designed and the spring assisted opening. The knife came extremely sharp straight out of the box. I think what I like the most about this knife is the weight and the overall feel of it in my hand. I've had my AR 3.0 for 7 years and this is the first knife I feel I can retire that blade for.
