  • This is one of the original Kershaw Blurs, the Blurs that started it all. Like all Blurs it’s equipped with a big, slightly recurved blade that’s ideal for multitasking. The blade shape offers both excellent slicing and piercing capabilities and the high-performance Sandvik 14C28N stainless blade steel offers corrosion resistance and hardness. The black Blur has a DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coated blade for extra corrosion resistance and enhanced looks. This Blur's partially serrated blade provides additional cutting power for making short work of rope, cord, and other fibrous materials. As you might expect, the black Blur has black handles with 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. A short push on the thumbstud overcomes the resistance built into the torsion bar in the SpeedSafe mechanism. The SpeedSafe takes over and the blade moves out of the handle quickly and easily. One-handed opening is easy with SpeedSafe. The pocketclip is reversible for your choice of tip-up or tip-down carry. There’s even a pre-drilled lanyard hole.

  • Your EDC-perfect Clash is waiting for you. Don’t make it wait long. The Clash goes to the dark side in the new black Clash.

A simple pull back on the flipper and SpeedSafe opens the knife super-smoothly and easily. Textured glass-filled nylon handle scales offer a solid grip as the handle contours nestle securely into the hand. A locking liner locks provides a safe, secure, and solid blade lockup.

  • NDZ Performance Laser Engraved Original Kershaw Chive 1600. This is a classic Ken Onion design, the individual responsible for Kershaw's patented SpeedSafe assisted-opening mechanism and over 35 other knife-related patents. The Kershaw Chive is one of the most practical EDC, with a modified drop-point 2-inch 420 stainless steel blade attached to the 3-inch 410 stainless steel handle, coming in smaller than most knifes but perfect to carry almost anywhere while still getting the job done. When the knife is in the closed position, the blade is held in place by means of torsion springs and an additional blade lock. As the user applies manual pressure to the thumb stud to open the knife, mechanisms such as the torsion spring moves along a track in the liner and rapidly rotates the blade into the open and locked position. Features built-in flipper, ambidextrous thumb studs, and the Tip-Lock slider to lock the blade closed when folded. Also known as the Kershaw Leek's little brother.
