Kershaw Leek Composite Assisted Opening Knife (3" Blackwash) 1660CBBW


  • Black stonewashed Wharncliffe blade made from CPM D2 and 14C28N Sandvik steels.
  • Flipper and thumb studs with assisted opening.
  • Black stonewashed stainless steel handle scales.
  • Frame lock for secure lock-up.
  • Pocket clip for tip-down and tip-down carry.


The Kershaw Leek is one of the sleekest and most popular assisted opening knives ever produced. It features Kershaw's patented SpeedSafe technology. Give the ambidextrous thumb-stud a push and the knife takes over opening the blade the rest of the way. This is an ideal one-handed opener with a reversible pocket clip and a tip safety lock so the blade won't fire by accident.

Customer Reviews

Beauty meets function
Leland J. on Apr 15, 2019

I love this knife! It has such a dystopian/worn future vibe If a stormtrooper was issued a pocket knife it would look like this. Opening is smooth as glass, blade as usual from Kershaw came shaving sharp and pictures do not do it justice just how good looking this knife is My only real comment about it not even a complaint is the way it’s designed to carry moving the pocket clip for tip down carry about an inch of the knife will protrude past the pocket clip out of the pocket

Favorite knife in my collection

This knife is so easy to use al day long, the blade centering is perfect, the edge came very sharp, the size is perfect for edc, and the assist is snappy even after daily use for months on end.

Favorite Knife
Zachary D. on Jan 19, 2018

The reason I love the leek in general is because it fits so comfortable yet securely in my pocket. If you ever feel your knife gets in the way of you trying to get other things out of your pocket this is a great option. Even though it's small it feels strong. There's little to no blade play in every one I've seen and the action is speedy and smooth. A classic that feels just as good as it looks, but with a little upgrade with the composite blade. The composite is nice, but what I notice more than the blade quality itself is the comments I get when people see it. Definitely the knife I always go back to.

Very nice knife
Wes H. on May 1, 2016

I like this knife a lot. The blade opens very fast with the flipper and is razor sharp out of the box. The knife looked a little different than the photo. The blade looked like the photo and the handle/frame looks like a well worn black "parkerized" finish you see on military hardware. It gives the knife a very utilitarian look which I like. It looks like a knife someone has carried for many years.
