The Blur Knife by Kershaw. For top performance and attention-getting style, it's the Kershaw Ken Onion Blur series. Blurs feature premium 13C26 stainless-steel blades for strength and corrosion resistance. Choose standard or partially serrated blades. Blurs are SpeedSafe equipped for smooth, one-handed opening. The anodized aluminum handles are durable and lightweight. For extra traction and a secure grip, the handles are outfitted with Trac-Tec inserts. The rough Trac-Tec material provides a non-slip grip even in wet and slippery conditions. Ideal for extreme or everyday situations, the Blur series offers power and performance. New for 2007, we've added a Stone Washed Blur with its terrific handle look and S30V stainless-steel blade for toughness and ease of sharpening.
FEATURES of the Blur Knife by Kershaw
Steel: Sandvik 13C26 stainless-steel
Handle: 6061-T6 anodized aluminum with Trac-Tec inserts
This is a good knife for most general knife things, i would still always recommend and nice fixed blade over a folder, but this is a solid knife and will pass most tests its put through. i have used it for many outdoor activities and it is still holding up great. feels good in hand and the weight isn't too bad either.
I had the S30V steel version with G10 inserts on aluminum handle. Pros: assisted opening is definitely assisted. -Blade is well sharpened, though not as much as a leek comes. -handle is well designed and fit comfortably in my hand. blade profile is very useful for cutting and slicing. Retention is good. Lockup is very solid, with no play. At least for mine. Cons: Blade length is above legal limit in my state of residence; pushed me away from carrying it regularly. Kershaw clip is far from deep carry; the knife stuck out and was easily noticed when carried in pockets. Bottom line: A great knife, well designed. Definitely good for use in the outdoors, and in more rough circumstances. Not a knife I found good for EDC.
"Awesome Knife - used for hunting, fishing, camping, daily use"
I've had this knife for about 2 years now. You can see the wear and tear on the handle but the blade is still fine as ever. I've used this knife for hunting, camping, fishing, backpacking, and everything else. It has never failed to do the job. I've only had to sharpen it one time, so the blade holds its edge. Bottom line, I would fork up the cash and buy this blade. My in the straight blade, but that is just my preference. I've even used this knife as my duty knife when working, it’s reliable and the assisted open function is phenomenal.You should probably buy this knife right now!
I carried this knife daily since 2005 or 2006. I have owned both the tanto style and the drop point style. I have lost this knife twice and replaced it twice, the most recent edition being from 2008. It does hold an edge well, I have always had the serrated version, though would rather not as I feel its a waste of usable space...next time I lose it I will replace it with no serration. The flip works flawless after years of constant use and abuse, the serration has never been sharpened and is still razor sharp. The flat portion is easily sharpened. I highly recommend this knife, though I feel like 109 bucks is way more than the 60 I paid for it in 2008.
I purchased this product for an everyday carry knife and I love it. I have some use for it almost every day and this knife never lets me down. The assisted opening is wonderful for 1 handed operation. The pocket clip is really strong; it's not going anywhere. I do not have the serrated edge version due to personal preference. I've had this knife for about 1.5 years now and wouldn't trade it for a thing. I was looking at this and a SOG. I am glad I chose this product.
got this knife for my hubby for christmas and he has not stopped flipping it open since! he loves the switchblade-like open (which freaks me out to be honest! LOL). he plans to use it for work, hiking, and anything else he can think of. it came in handy during christmas when opening up gifts/packaging for my nieces! there were other smaller knives available but this one seems to be the size he can use for anything. and bonus- it has a clip so you can attach it to your pocket.
I have had one of these for about 3 years. The blade holds an edge very well and the coating the blade is super durable and shows almost no wear. The spring assist is helpful for easily opening the knife with one hand and is just plain cool! The handle has very good grip even when it is wet. Kershaw customer service is also second to none. If there is ever a problem with the knife it can be sent and they will fix it for free and while it is there they will clean it, sharpen it and make it look new again. Get one!
"God of all Knives (The indestructible destroyer)"
This knife has gotten me trough the wilds of North Carolina, New Zealand, and Michigan's Isle Royale. It will slice and dice through anything you put in its path. And when you use the blur it just feels right.
I've had this knife for about 2 months and use it almost every day at work. It is an outstanding every day knife as well as tactical knife. It comes sharp out of the box and ready to go. I am glad I bought this blade over the SOG Flash II
nice knife and good build quality but the spring broke after a while. the good thing is that you can send it into kershaw and they will fix it for free. but you have to pay the shipping, i have other spring knifes that have had for much longer than this, i do not reccomend this knife
The spring action of this knife is one of the fastest, smoothest openings I've ever seen. I bought this knife probably 5 or 6 years ago and it's still going strong. Great price, and an incredibly smooth action. Kershaw makes a great blade.
