Another Kershaw Blur Knife that also comes with the extra secure grip of the Trac-Tec Insert on the handle. You can be certain that this knife won’t slip in your hands during even the wettest or slippery conditions. A fast response in an emergency situation shouldn’t be hampered by an inability to get a good grip on the knife. The Trac-Tec Insert makes sure that will never happen.
The handles on this Blur Knife are also easy to use by righties and lefties with an equally sure grip. As always the Blur blade is created with powdered steel wrapped in an additional two layers of softer steel for a super strong, super dense cutting edge.
No need to worry about the blade accidentally coming open either. The Blur comes with the SpeedSafe patented assisted-opening system, so you can easily open the knife with the push of a thumb. Yet, also be certain that it will stay closed when you don’t need it.
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.

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.
