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 ›
This is a serious knife that can do serious damage, learn from my mistake. Not for the young or clumsy. You have been warned.
The speed safe assisted opening works perfectly and I have never had a bad experience with a Kershaw knife.
The speed safe was a little bit of a surprise, I thought it would be a lot less forceful than it is. To be honest, I wouldn't bring this out in public (the Sapphire was as exciting as a butter knife) because of the attention snapping it open is likely to attract. If anything, that's the only downside to it--it looks as useful as it is. Don't be surprised if you get a "is that even legal?" reaction.
The Blur design is excellent. I have arthritis in my hand and it makes opening a knife somewhat difficult. With the assisted opening it opens easily with just a short push of the thumb. I can recommend the knife but not the 440A steel. 440B and 440C steels are much better.
After checking with Kershaw, I found they changed the steel on July 7, 2008. At that time they were placing dates on the blade. Just lately they have quit dating their knives so any knife with a date after 7-4-08 or later or no date will have the better steel.
I have changed my rating from 2 stars to 4 stars after getting this information. Very few things rate a 5 star in my opinion.
Good Luck, Jim
