Kershaw Ken Onion Design Folding Knife - Blur
Overall Excellent Knife
I carried a Blur for over 2 years--I lost it out of checked airline baggage--TSA must have liked better than me. Now I have to buy another. Feels good in the hand, assisted blade opening is effortless. Handles very well. Razor sharp out of the box and holds an edge very well even in the face of the abuse I give it. Ability to move--or remove--pocket clip is a plus. Grip surface is also an important plus as it helps prevent slippage while using the knife. Ironically, the grip surface may be the only possible drawback. Rough on the hands when carried in the front pocket--I solved that by carrying it in a back pocket. Overall, an excellent knife to carry on a daily basis and the only one I'll use.

The knife is obove the quality expected from Kershaw. It is a work horse. The knife opens quickly with one hand, has an excellent grip, and holds an edge like a razor blade. Out of all of my Kershaws it is my favorite.

Lost and Found
Bought this knife and carried every day for a year. Super sharp right out of the box. Don't know how long it would take to dull, I sharpen all my knives every few months.
After about a year of carrying. was getting ready to enter a Buffett concert left it in the truck. Started looking for it the next day, no luck. Figured Jimmy Buffett swiped it. Bought a little larger Kershaw to replace it. A good knife but I missed my blur.
The next year after a Buffett concert found it in the laundry room. I guess Jimmy put it there while we were away. Anyway gave the larger Kershaw to my son. Now knife never leaves my pocket unless it is in my hand. Won't even loan it for a minute or two. Buy one and see if I am not right. Best pocket knife period. Easy one hand operation both opening and closing. Buy it

Opens both ways easily, simple to close, the clip(which is very tight) can be reversed. A quality product at a fair price. Grip texture is just right, finish is even and attractive.
Edge is sharp and seems to hold up - that's the only thing I can't truly comment on yet - just haven't cut a whole lot with it yet.
