Product Description

Product Description

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.


Most knife injuries occur because the user has a poor grip on the knife. Kershaw's Blur knife solves the problem with its unique anodized aluminum handle, which features advanced materials designed to provide a safe, secure grip every time--even under extreme conditions. In addition, the handle is CNC-machined to accept Trac-Tec inserts, giving your hand an even grippier surface. The Blur also sports the SpeedSafe ambidextrous assisted opening system. Invented by celebrated knife maker Ken Onion, the SpeedSafe system lets users smoothly and easily deploy the stone-washed, stainless-steel blade with either the left or right hand. This makes it ideal for sporting and work situations in which one-handed opening is easier and safer, such as when hunting, fishing, or working with your hands on the jobsite.

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.
About the SpeedSafe System
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.

This knife is a BEAST. Almost everything about this knife is perfect. This is not my first Kershaw product, and probably won't be my last. However, this could be the last EDC folder I'll ever need. Its thin (only about .5 inches) and the t6 aluminum handle is light, yet feels sturdy and reliable. The grippy trac-tec inserts give the knife a great feel in your hand, and the peace of mind knowing it won't slip from your grip. I opted to pay the extra cash to get this bad boy in s30v, because of it's edge retention. It's probably not necessary since I'm not really abusing the knife, but you never know when the higher steel quality might come in handy. The assisted opening action on this guy is second to none and downright addictive. One you pop, the fun don't stop. And for all you California buyers, this knife, or any of the other Ken Onion Speedsafe knives are not illegal. The opening mechanism is a thumb stud located on the blade, which disqualifies it from being an illegal switch blade. The stone wash finish on the blade is a nice extra, and the blade is razor sharp. I'm talking "don't touch me" sharp. With even the lightest amount of force, you can easily shave layers off of your fingernails (a trick a friend of mine who is a chef taught me to test the sharpness of cutlery). My only qualm with this blur, is the pocket clip. It looks kind of dinky, and its a tuck too tight. I wish I could replace it with the beastly wide clip on my Kershaw Clash. Although its just a beater knife, i must say the clip is amazing. Any who, the sheer awesomeness of this knife quickly makes me forget about the clip. This is a beautifully crafted tool, and I highly suggest you join the Blur Club, s30v or not. Plus it's backed by Kershaw's amazing customer service and limited lifetime warranty, which is the stuff of legends. I hope this review helped, and I hope you purchase this beast of a folder.

I had spent a couple weeks looking for a replacement for my kershaw whirlwind, which was a great knife and I had absolutely no complaints at all, but I eventually decided on the Blur. I liked the fact that the blur was available in S30V steel I had not owned one with this blade material yet but the majority of the reviews for this type of steel have been very promising. I don't think that you can find a better knife for the money. There is not any blade movement when locked, this is the main thing that makes me keep buying Kershaw knives, at least the assisted opening variety. Very sharp out of the box, very fast to open, grips well in your hand. Made in USA and backed by Kershaws lifetime warranty, how can you go wrong?

I enjoy writing reviews - especially on knives. And, the Blur with S30V is no exception. The Kershaw Blur line is possibly the best knife line of any brand on the market today. All Blurs look, feel and perform exceptionally for an EDC/mid-duty folder. Kershaw also machines their edges better than anyone (my opinion). This knife came very sharp, however, I might say that it was just a smidge less sharp than Sandvik models (no surprise to me). Sandvik presents a scalpel-hair-popping edge (which edge holding capacity is not like S30V). Still, I love this Blur the same, and you will too. S30V is my other favorite steel it was developed by Crucible to be an overall performance knife steel. It gets razor sharp, stays that way - is tough and not to brittle; it can be re-honed with a fair effort, and it won't rust. S30V offers the better of all steel worlds. No, it's not the sharpest, hardest, toughest, most expensive, or corrosion-proof steel, but, you'd be pressed to find a steel which hits all those cababilities as good TOGETHER. It's the best overall knife steel out there today.

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.

This is the best knife I have seen or owned from Kershaw. You can get the same knife with a different blade for about half this price, but this one has an S30V blade. S30V is considered one of the best metals for pocket knives because it holds a good edge and is still fairly corrosion resistant. It does take a little longer to sharpen than cheaper steels because of it's hardness, but once it's there it holds a good edge.

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.
