Brand: Kershaw 1660CKTST
You have been hiking for hours and you are "positive" you are walking in the right direction. You turn left. You turn right. You're lost. Now what? If you have the right tool you can set up for the night and wait for rescue. If you don't have the right tool you are in for a long lonely night. With Kershaw Knives and Tools you will have the best opportunity to make it out of your ordeal safely and securely. Kershaw Knives and Tools are sought after outdoorsmen, hunters, LEO, military, and everyone in between that appreciates excellent tools and blades. Next time you are heading out to the urban jungle, or your favorite isolated hiking trail take Kershaw with you. "Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it".
If you prefer your knife in basic black, this one just might be your perfect EDC. To create this matte-black look, Kershaw engineers ionize metal and deposit it on both blade and handle as a microns-thin coating. This process results in a coating known as DLC, or Diamond-Like Carbon, which is hard and scratch resistant.
With its 3" blade, the Leek is a good-sized knife, but not too big. The slim design makes it easy to carry and its razor-sharp blade of high-performance Sandvik 14C28N means it can take care of a full range of cutting tasks. The blade is a modified drop-point, so it's a good slicing knife, while the slim tip gives it piercing capability and the ability to do detailed work.
For a partially serrated blade, choose the 1660CKTST Leek in basic black. The Leek features the SpeedSafe ambidextrous assisted opening system. Whether you're left-handed or right-handed, just pull back on the blade protrusion or push outward on the thumbstud and the Leek's blade is ready to go to work. For confident blade use, a super-secure frame lock keeps the blade locked during use and a Tip-Lock slider locks the blade closed when folded. The pocketclip can be configured for tip-up or tip-down carry and the handle is drilled to accept a lanyard.
