If you don't yet own a Kershaw Blur, it's probably because you've just never had your hands on one. Because once you do, you'll see why the Blur has remained one of Kershaw's most popular knives for so many years. It starts with the big, slightly recurved blade. The shape is ideal for multitasking and offers both excellent slicing and piercing capabilities. The olive drab Blur's 14C28N high-performance stainless-steel blade is DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coated for additional wear and corrosion resistance. DLC is hard, non-reflective, and just plain looks good. In this Blur, the black DLC coating is matched with black Trac-Tec grip-tape handle inserts for an extremely solid grip. The handle itself is durable 6061-T6 anodized aluminum, sometimes described as "aircraft aluminum" since it is a common material used for aircraft fittings. But the main point is that it's lightweight, extremely durable, and anodized. For easy one-handed opening, the Blur is equipped with SpeedSafe(R) assisted opening. The pocketclip is reversible for your choice of tip-up or tip-down carry. There's even a pre-drilled lanyard hole.
