Good Deal on Black Plain Edge Leek 1660

Kershaw began its foray into the knife business sometime during 1974. The company was originally based in Portland Oregon, but most early knives were manufactured in Japan. The first US manufacturing plant was opened in 1997 & the company currently offers knives made in the U.S., Japan, & China. Pete Kershaw (an ex Gerber salesman) started the business.

Good Deal on Black Plain Edge Leek 1660

Post by QTCut5 » Tue Sep 15, 2020 3:51 pm

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.

I offered $15 just to see and they rejected it automatically.

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.
