    Hi there,
    I just got a Kershaw Leek and I would like to switch the pocket clip. To my blurry old beat up eyes, the screws look like the tiniest Torx screws I've ever almost seen.
    Can anyone tell me what size so that I can buy the correct bit?

    Thanks,

    Torx #6 on the screws, and #8 for the pivot.

    Hope this helps!

    Huge!
    That's what I needed. Thanks.
    I'll start the search for a bit tomorrow, and be good to go.
    Thanks again,
    Fliptop

    go to lowes or home depot and in the screwdriver area you can find a little changeable bit number. mine has t4 thru t11. real handy on the folders.

    I'll head on in to the big city to Home Depot this afternoon and pick one up.

    I appreciate the help.

    Home Depot carries a Torx driver from Husky. It has all the bits you'll need stored in the handle. I think they sell for $5 or $6.

    Thats exactly what I got! I'm sure some of the other bits will come in handy for something, sometime.
    Most of which I have around the house anyway.

    Can anyone tell me the length of the screws?

    I'm actually going to add some character to the knife with a blue screw set on my silver Kershaw Leek 1660.

    Do a search on eBay for Blue Titanium Screw Set for Leek 1660. You can get a whole set for about 15.00

    Thanks, I didn't know that existed. I'm still searching for the length though since I can't bring myself to pay $2 a screw when they cost about ten cents.
