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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.
