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.

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 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.

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.

Color Name: Tactical Black Serrated
This is an awesome knife, I've had it for a couple days already. I agree with everything the other reviewer said; the knife is sharp enough to shave with from the factory (not only that, if I try I can cut off the top layer of skin without making myself bleed). The SpeedSafe assisted opening makes opening this knife a real fast procedure. I hope I never have to use this knife defensively; I hope I only have to use it to cut the tape on packages, cut network cables, stuff like that.

One very minor concern I have with it: the finish is very much like sandpaper. This makes it so that you WILL NOT lose your grip on it. The downside is that I wear this knife in the front pocket of my pants (using the pocket clip), and I'm worried that the abrasiveness of the finish will rub a hole on the inside of my pocket. Overall, it's not a big deal though, it's much better than my sometimes clumsy self dropping this knife into somebody's leg, or something bad like that.
