Product Description

Constructed of 13C26 stainless steel for strength and corrosion resistance, Kershaw's Ken Onion Blur folding knife features a 3-3/8-inch smooth or serrated blade. Ideal for extreme or everyday situations, the Blur series offers power and performance. A lightweight anodized aluminum handle offers Trac-Tec inserts which provide a non-slip grip even in wet and slippery conditions.

Kershaw's SpeedSafe assisted opening system helps you to smoothly open the knife with a manual push on the blade's thumb stud or Index-Open system. SpeedSafe's torsion bar helps keep the knife closed, preventing it from being opened by accident. In order to open the knife, apply manual pressure to the thumb stud to overcome the resistance of the torsion bar. After the blade is out of the handle, the torsion bar moves along its track and takes over. The blade opens smoothly and locks into position, ready for use.

Color Name: Black (black blade)
I have hundreds of tactical folders to compare this knife to and it stands up superbly. It's build quality is outstanding, opens quickly and easily, quality of the steel is adequate, the blade shape is attractive and useful, the grip is comfortable and much improved over earlier version (they had sand paper, current version has thin rubber inserts), and Kershaw's service and support is perfect.
In my duty use in the military, I have used Blurs for several years and they always impress. For $55 you should buy several and give them as heirloom gifts. Other knives with these features and opening speed, including automatics like Microtech and ProTech, will cost three times as much. A great knife that will last forever with care.

Color Name: Tactical Black Serrated
I hate to feed into the mentality that causes knifemakers to hype their blades as "tactical," because the last thing we need to give lawmakers is another excuse to heroically protect us by banning the tools we carry. But the first and last thing I have to say about the Ken Onion Tactical Blur is that it is one fearsome knife.

A curved blade would be suited to your usual cutting and slicing applications, such as skinning mastodons and so on. This knife, on the other hand, has a chisel-like tanto point, which is ideal for thrusting effortlessly through beef ribs or car hoods. It would be equally at home cutting up cardboard boxes, linoleum flooring, or metal garbage cans.

Technically, this isn't a switchblade. Switchblades are bad. We know this because our lawmakers have heroically protected us by effectively banning them at various levels. This is only an ordinary liner-lock knife with spring-assisted opening. But if I ever found a switchblade with the deployment speed and cutting power of the Blur, I'd say it was quite a knife.

The blade is shaving-sharp from the factory, and the handle is lightweight but sturdy aluminum with some kind of gritty sandpaper-like stuff glued on to give a better grip should the knife become slippery with any sort of fluid. Use your imagination. I haven't tried shattering any cinderblocks with it yet, but it's sturdy enough to use as a yawara stick in a pinch.

Folded, the whole package can be palmed even in my small hands and feels much like a disposable lighter with a glandular problem. I don't even notice it in my hip pocket, which is where it rides whenever I happen to be wearing pants.

If walking around with something this fearsome seems too naughty for you, remember a couple of things.

Color Name: Black (black blade)
Fun, cool, outstanding, fast, well built, ok ok I get it on with the review.
Best Tactical folder I own. here's why
Upside;
1. Fastest assisted opener I've seen. A little thumb pressure on the really well crafted thumb studs and "smack". Opens in a "blur".
2. Blade stregth is superb. Arrives sharp, stays sharp, and cuts with ease.
3. Perfect size. Extremely comfertable in the hand.
4. The grip is very good. An almost soft rubbery silicone grip tape along the outside will not allow you to let go.
5. Pre drilled holes for tip up or tip down carry.
6. If you get the Blur with the partially serrated edges, the serrations are wicked sharp.
7. Well built, put it through abuse fella's just don't get stupid with it.

Downside;
1. Thumb jimping is pretty weak, however, the grip tape works.
2. The pocket clip is reallllly tight. Tough to draw from the pocket without bringing your pocket with it.

Overall, I own several, buy it. Its great. It is the one knife I take everyday on duty. I refuse to leave my patrol car without it. Good job Kershaw.

It took me a minute to understand the right way to open this knife, it's not like the Chive or Leek. Once I did, OH YEAH; just push straight forward with your thumb and this thing is Black Lightning. The grip is such that you could hold onto the knife if it was covered in grease. I love all of Ken Onion's designs but this is the best one yet from Kershaw.

Color Name: Tactical Black Serrated Verified Purchase
I've been in the Army active duty and reserve; enlisted and officer for 20 years. I'm currently working as a law enforcement officer. So, I've dealt with a lot of knives built for various purposes. Taking everything into account I would consider this one of the best knives I've owned. It has a great edge for doing day to day routine cutting boxes, 100 mile an hour tape, I cut slices of bannana bread with it today. However, with the spring loaded action and the sharpness of the blade I have no doubt it would be a great knife to defend your life with. I know, I know odds of that happening are probably slim to none, but like a previous reviewer said, "you will probably not need a knife this fast and ferocious, but if you do, you will *really* need it". 'Nuff said.

The knife holds a good blade even after some abuse. The thumb button is a little small and a bit tough on the thumb after repeated openings but does open the knife very well. The textured handle provides a very good grip but works like sand paper on anything else in your pocket. If I lost it I would buy another one.

Color Name: Tactical Black Serrated
Like jumper cables, duct tape, or any of those ubiquitous domestic tools we all keep handy, the tanto Blur performs mundane functions reliably and efficiently. But a mundane tool it's not.

Out of the box (I have 7 or 8 Blurs in different blade configurations): Shaving sharp, precisely machined (no wobble; no tightening or loosening necessary), and backed by Kershaw's well-known reputation for above-and-beyond customer service. This knife at this price-point is an excellent value.

Blurs---like other Kershaws in this price range---definitely hold their own against Benchmade's "blue" line of blades, which usually cost 20%-30% more. I'm not bashing Benchmade by any means (I have a 551S in my pocket right now, and I love it); and I'm not suggesting the Kershaw offerings are superior; I'm just saying: The cost of a Kershaw is generally a virtue, not an indication of poor materials or fitment.

The tanto Blur's pleasing balance, in-line drop-point tip, and full-length hollow grind encourage control and precision for piercing, slashing, push-cuts, and short slices. The SV13C26 blade will make short work of typical cardboard, most ropes and twine, and that all-too-common "protective" plastic packaging. If configured with a combo edge, it'll also back-saw large bushes and woody vegetation with ease. The addition of serrations does take away a full half of the bottom straight edge, leaving not much more than an inch. But it's not likely to be space wasted if you intend to use the knife for everyday tasks, and no piercing power is sacrificed.

The tanto Blur does a respectable job of retaining its sharpness. An occasional two-second touch-up with a little fine-grit compound keeps the edge in shape. Just don't take too much metal off the tip.
