Kershaw Blur, am I late to the party?




I picked up a Blur today at Bass Pro Shops and like it more than I thought I would. I never thought spring assisted knives made any sense, and could be outright dangerous. My mistake! Who's got one? Who likes theirs? Who hates it?

I have a Kershaw black Leek and a CRKT Carson M4, both assisted opening. I think they're great.

IT is much lighter than my CRKT Ryan, which has the same blade length. I have been playing with since I brought it home. Will the spring wear out? What kind of warranty does Kershaw have? Customer service?

Kershaw has a limited lifetime warranty. I have my Blur for close to 5 yrs now I think (if memory serves me) and no issues with the spring mechanism.

Best regards,
Joseph

Kershaw has one of if not the best warranty in the business. 75% of my collection is Kershaw knives and the Blur is one of them.

Just like my CBOB, my Blur feels like part of me. Perfect compliment to each other. I have taken to carrying it since the second I bought it.

I liked my Blur so much that I bought my brother and friend one for Christmas last year...plus a spare for myself.

I love my Blur, extremely sharp (like all Kershaw's), opens easily, light and comfortable for daily carry.

I like spring assisted knives I own a Gerber Fast draw, Kershaw Cyclone, Two Camillus Heat, to me about a third of what an auto costs without the hassle, and all of the conveinence.

I think its great for right hand carry/presentation. The clip can be removed and changed to either tip up, or tip down carry. If you ask, they will send you extra screws, clip, and a removal tool.

The tool body is hollow and has room for extra bits and screws. Good stuff. The Blur isn't as well thought out.

The Blur is not so great for left hand carry/presentation. It is done, just a bit more awkward. There is other stuff going on with my right hand, so a clip on knife is carried on the left side.

If I were doing it again, I'd have bought something else.

Its light weight, agile, and will do dang near anything you'd ever need to do.
