Black Blur Tanto Serrated

The Tanto Blur from Kershaw and Ken Onion is a slight variation on the Blur knife. This blade has increased usability in unique or emergency situations. Plus you'll love having the partially serrated edge to use for sawing through materials or scraping.

The knife blade is made from Sandvik 14C28N stainless-steel with a Tungsten DLC Coating to make it very strong and long-lasting. The handle is 6061-T6 anodized aluminum with Trac-Tec inserts and a 410 stainless steel liner. You'll be able to use this knife effectively in an emergency and keep a secure grip on the handle in wet or slippery conditions.

It's also a convenient knife with a changeable pocket clip. The Tanto Blur handle is drilled for left and right hand clip carry. A Locking Liner locks the blade into position after it's been fully deployed. Plus the SpeedSafe patented assisted opening system makes for easy ambidextrous opening of the Blur.

Changeable Clip
The Blurs handles are drilled for both left and right hand clip carry.

Locking Liner

Locks the blade into position after the blade is deployed. To release the locking liner simply press the spring loaded lock and the blade will easily fold back into the handle.

SpeedSafe from Kershaw Knives revolutionized the knife industry when it was first introduced on the Ken Onion Chive. First off a knife that features SpeedSafe technology is not considered and automatic knife. The correct classification is an “Assisted Opening Knife. There are two variations of SpeedSafe. One being a “Flipper” where the user uses their index finger to deploy the blade, and the other the user uses the thumb stud found on the blade for deployment. Both variations require the user to apply manual pressure to overcome the resistance of the torsion bar. This is why a SpeedSafe does not meet the definition of being classified as a switchblade. A SpeedSafe will not deploy with the push of a button or by gravity alone. Once open, the blade locks safely into position until the user releases it. A key advantage of a SpeedSafe knife is that many of the models are ambidextrous, and can be opened just as easy by either a right or left handed person.

Wicked knife.....in a good way! October 16, 2010
Reviewer: Gary Sivits from New Haven, IN United States  
Saw this knife at Walmart, and I have to say, never had any experience with Kershaw knives before.  I've always loved the shape of the tanto-style blades, and the serrations are a great feature for cutting through tough material, such as seat belts, in case of an emergency.  The only thing I would change on it, is have the clip mounted at the rear end of the handle, rather than near the blade end.  I switched the positioning of the clip, but ruined the star screw by doing so.  Found a couple of screws the same size and threading at a local hardware store, but they're bright silver, not black.  But they do work.  And I would add a window-breaking point on the rear as well.  But all in all, this is a very useful knife, and it rides comfortably in my 5-11 tac-lite pro pants' front knife pocket.  It's very fast on the draw, it's big; but lightweight, and the rubberized panels make for a sure gripping surface.  5 stars!

Exceptional Knife April 18, 2010
Reviewer: RMF from Danbury, CT United States  
Kershaw's Blur Tanto has got to the best all-round knife for whatever its called upon to do. This knife handles whatever tasks are presented. The blade deploys quickly and locks up as firmly as a Kershaw's lock-back knives. The serrations, plain, and tanto profiles enable one to use it for many varied tasks. And the Trac-Tec inserts provide a platform for a firm grip, even when wet. Kudos to Kershaw.

One of the best knifes I've ever owned March 10, 2010
Reviewer: John C. from Avon, IL United States  
One of the best knifes I have ever owned! First kershaw I have ever purchased. I have handled them before so I had to purchase one for myself and I must say best knife for the price. The only other tanto I own is the cold steel master tanto. Both highly exceptional knifes in my book. Overall the feel, sharpness,ease of opening, and craftmanship of this tanto is the best I've seen in a long time keep it up kershaw!

Excellent Addition February 21, 2009
Reviewer: George  from Cocoa, FL United States  
I have been carrying, collecting, and using knives for a number of years now and after reading the reviews for this knife, I just had to go and see it for myself.  When I looked at it and handled it the first time, it was love at first sight.  Where has this knife been all of my life?  The grip is marvelous and fits perfectly in your fist.  The total black tone of the knife adds to its mystique and it is surprisingly lightweight for its heft and size.

As mentioned in other reviews, it opens quickly and locks into place securely.  It gives you an immediate feeling of security that this is a no nonsense tool ready and willing to be used.  It has quickly become my favorite for weekend and evening carrying.  I have to carry something much smaller during the weekdays since I work in a public setting.
