This eBay seller has 10 brand new, USA made, Black Plain Edge Kershaw Leeks 1660 for sale listed at $29.99 OBO (Free Shipping!). I offered $25.00 and my offer was automatically accepted (maybe could have gotten it for even less?). If you're in the market for this particular knife, this is a pretty good deal. (Disclaimer: I am not the seller nor am I affiliated with the seller in any way.)

Good looking knife for a good price. Just to test the waters I sent an offer in too. We’ll see what he says.

***edit****
I just bought two, one for me and one for my middle boy. He accepted $20. I think this model is selling for $50 on Amazon.

Monkey see, monkey do, only I only offered for one. Real tempting to try & get two. One to keep and one to give away. Super price.

Edit: Just hit me. I wonder if they're blems. At that price, it makes no never mind to me if they are. Usually it's almost impossible to find the blemish on Kershaw blems.

Well, I’m a horrible father, don’t ya know. I made Parker pay for his. But I’m sure he’ll eat more than $20 today so it’ll be a wash. lol

I was just joking around. My car was broke down (€450), so now I'm broke as a snapped bean anyways. ::nod::
I only get a paycheck once a month, so if your broke after the first week, your in for a long month. ::doh:: And things have gotten even worse in the last year & a half. Who cares about food, now when I'm broke, I can't even buy any knives. ::facepalm:: It's absolutely terrible! ::doh::

You’re singing my tune! I’ve got a broke down truck that needs parts, and a tractor that I just ordered a bunch of parts for the lift and pto, and then there’s the bush hog I need to get sheet metal and patch up...... I think I’m done adulting. :D

PS

I’m always curious about our members beyond the pale. What’s it like shipping knives to Germany. Are there restrictions?

The only restrictions I know of is about the value of the knives. If the value on the package is like $15 - $20, it's fine. If it's stated as being worth more than that, I have to pay "Import taxes". Good thing my Mom has no idea what knives are worth & I always tell her, "Oh just write $20 on it. That'll be fine." :lol:

I'm not up to speed on modern knives. Is it possible these are "clones"?

I really don't know. But, I've noticed a lot of retailers (both knife and general) have been clearancing out Leeks in all configurations like crazy as of late, and what the seller is asking is only about $5 less than what I paid for my silver one. Yet pretty much all Scallions, and most Chives are regular price. I don't know if for some reason, it's a slow seller, or perhaps, Kershaw is making some changes to the design in the near future.

No. I suppose anything is possible but that is very highly unlikely.

Edit: For those who got an order in, it's a good thing you were quick on the trigger 'cause they're all gone.

I made an offer at $20, and it sat unconfirmed for several hours. I went out and did some stuff and when I got back I had a notice that my offer was accepted, so I paid. Maybe I got the last one. ::shrug:: Thanks Q for the heads-up. :D

Now we’ll see what shows up in my mailbox. :lol:

I was sore tempted to buy two but managed to get my implusive side under control. (for once) Now let's see how quickly he ships.
