K1660OL: Ken Onion Leek Olive Drab Spring Assisted Knife
Kershaw Leeks have been top sellers since they were first introduced. But because they're so popular, lots of people want a Leek they can call their own--in a color or finish they really like. Kershaw has introduced a brand new color so that you can have the Leek you've always wanted. This one is a olive drab green.
Like all Leeks, this one features a blade of Sandvik 14C28N high-performance stainless steel. The task-ready 3-in. blade is a modified drop-point shape that offers good slicing capabilities, while the slim tip makes it great for piercing and detail work. The blade comes razor sharp out of the box and holds its edge well, too.
The brilliant color is applied to the anodized aluminum handle. The color is a fade-resistant, scratch-resistant dye that's permanently bonded to the aluminum, so it looks good now, and looks good later, too. But color isn't the only benefit of anodizing; the process strengthens the aluminum as well.
SpeedSafe equipped, this teal Leek is fast and easy to open left- or right-handed thanks to the ambidextrous flipper or thumbstud. For safety, a locking liner keeps the blade locked open during use and a Tip-Lock slider locks it closed when folded. This slim, easy-to-carry design, with plenty of cutting versatility just may be the perfect EDC.
