Finally, the Blur comes with a Kershaw pocket clip, which is meant to be clipped with the handle on the inside of your pocket. The clip is not to be worn on a belt, as this is an unsafe way to carry your knife.
The SpeedSafe assisted opening system lets you smoothly deploy the blade with 1 hand.
The patented SpeedSafe knife-opening system helps users open the knife by applying manual pressure to the thumb stud or blade protrusion. The heart of the SpeedSafe system--which is built into many of Kershaw's best-selling knives--is its torsion bar, which keeps gravity from opening the knife. After the blade is out of the handle, the torsion bar moves along its half-moon track and takes over, smoothly opening the blade and locking it into position, ready for use. Although they may look similar at first glance, SpeedSafe knives are not considered switchblades. Unlike a switchblade, SpeedSafe knives do not deploy with the push of a button in the handle or by gravity alone. Instead, the user must manually overcome the torsion bar's resistance, putting the knives outside the federal definition of a switchblade. However, it's the responsibility of the buyer to investigate and comply with the laws and regulations that apply in his or her specific area. Buyers should rest assured, however, that SpeedSafe knives are extremely safe, as they open only when the user manually deploys them, and lock securely into position when open so they don't close accidentally.
Knife Maker Ken Onion
A master of his trade, Ken Onion is one of the most sought-after custom knife makers in the industry. His custom knives can be found in the most prestigious private knife collections as well in as in the pockets of his dedicated customers. Ken's involvement in the knife trade dates back to his time in Palestine, West Virginia, where he was inspired at the age of 12 by Vernon Ott, a local blacksmith and maker of garden tools and knives. In the ensuing years, Ken joined the U.S. Marine Corps and worked in such fields as construction, heavy equipment repair, and hydraulics repair, always with an eye toward eventually designing the perfect knife. In November of 1991, Ken met Stan Fujisaki, a talented knife maker who agreed to teach him the tricks of the trade. After years of preparation--and some inspiration while working on a Harley cam for a friend--Ken created his first SpeedSafe knife. Today, Ken designs a custom selection of knives for Kershaw, many featuring the patented SpeedSafe torsion bar system for assisted opening. Ken is personally involved throughout the design and manufacturing process to ensure that each knife meets his high standards for performance and quality.

The assisted opening is quick and firm, and the handle has trac-tech inserts which offer much grip (skateboard tape-like). The beveled thumb-studs are awesome and unique to Blur knives. Your thumb rests perfectly on the knife blade when you need to open it. I like th markings on the knife, and the weight is about 4 oz - great for pocket carry. Lock up is good with minimal play, and the blade is centered perfectly in-nestle. Speak of - the blade shape on this model is slightly different than stock plain-edge Blurs, but it still maintains the nice recurve and belly.Read more ›
The assisted open works very well and once the blade is open it stays in place and feels very sturdy. I do prefer other types of locks over a liner lock, but for a liner lock this does the job well.
The grip inserts feel good in your hand and keeps the knife from slipping even when wet. The aluminum handle is flat which is good when it's in your pocket, but not as good when it is in your hand. I personally prefer a handle that is more contour to the hand, but I don't take any points off for something that is purely preference.
Overall, this is a very good knife from Kershaw that will last a very long time if used properly. If you like Kershaw knives as much as I do you will not regret owning this one. The only catch, for me, is that the allure of Kershaw has been that they make very good quality knives in the USA and still keep their prices down to about half as much comparable knife companies. This knife maintains and even builds on that tradition with the exception of the price. For example, I could buy a Benchmade Mchenry and Williams Design Knife for about $7 more than this knife and get a superior locking mechanism with a slightly inferior blade material.Read more ›

This is a great knife. It's squatty, sturdy, and should be able to withstand a good amount of abuse. The aluminum handle and s30v steel make a good solid combo. Read morePublished 4 days ago by Chester
Nice knife. However, for $20 or $30 more you can purchase an HK Nitrous Blitz by Benchmade. I own both and the HK is a much better knife. Read morePublished 5 days ago by Edward H Valenti
