Desert Sand Blur Plain Edge

The Blur Knife from Kershaw is an excellent flip open knife for use around the campfire or even on the job. Its blade is Sandvik 14C28N stainless steel with a strong Tungsten DLC coating. Get a grip on one of our toughest, most versatile knives—now in a desert tan finish. The Blur’s slightly recurved blade is ideal for slicing, slashing, or pulling cuts. This multi-task-ready blade is paired with a lightweight anodized aluminum handle and Trac-Tec inserts for a secure grip, even in slippery conditions.This is a knife that will stay sharp much longer than other types and after a lot of abuse.

In addition the Blur features the patented SpeedSafe assisted-opening system. An extra aid to ensure your safety while carrying and using the pocket knife. All you need is to press the thumb stud and the spring loaded blade will pop up for easy opening. To further ensure your safety while using the knife, a Locking Liner holds the knife firmly in place when fully opened.

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.

I Love It!!!!!!! September 10, 2012
Reviewer: William Friggle from Denver, PA United States  
The Blur is one of my favorite knives. When I saw they where coming out with this color, I just had to get one. The black and tan look fantastic together. They used this tan color on some other knives and I bought some of them as well. A Scallion and a Leek. At the same time they released this color, they did a green and black, which I also picked up. But I really prefer the tan. The build quality is perfect, of course. It's Kershaw. And it came razor sharp. I just accidentally touched the edge, and it opened me up. And I barely touched it. I need to put medical patches on my belly/ lower chest. I use this knife to shave it. :-) Works great.
