The popular Blur -- now in Olive Drab
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 our 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—when anodized—accepts a dye so we can create colored handles that are scratch resistant and extra tough. For easy one-handed opening, the Blur is equipped with SpeedSafe® assisted opening. The pocketclip is reversible for your choice of tip-up or tip-down carry. There’s even a pre-drilled lanyard hole.

SpeedSafe® Assisted Opening
Assists you to open any SpeedSafe® knife quickly and easily with a manual push on the thumbstud or pull back on the flipper; built into many Kershaw best sellers.
Inset Liner Lock
A strip of stainless steel is riveted inside the knife’s handle—most commonly when the handle is a lightweight material. This enables us to create a slimmer, lighter knife, while still providing the strength and security of a locking liner.
Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.
Made In The USA
When you see this on one of our knives, it means the knife was made in our Tualatin, Oregon manufacturing facility by skilled Kershaw knifemakers.
