Kershaw Knives
Kershaw Knives joined forces with Belarusian knife maker Dmitry Sinkevich to create the Nura 3.0. With its 3-inch blade, the Nura 3.0 is a right-sized knife. For the same style in a larger knife, check out the Nura 3.5.

Sinkevich's personal emphasis is on knives that incorporate intelligent design, state-of-the-art materials, and have a strong emphasis on quality fit and finish. That made him a natural fit with Kershaw and our own dedication to innovation and quality.

The new Nura features Kershaw’s KVT ball-bearing system for smooth, easy opening without a mechanical assist. Instead, the user pulls back on a flipper and the blade moves out of the handle quickly and easily. The key is a washer with caged ball bearings that surrounds the pivot and makes opening the knife nearly frictionless.

The Nura handle design has a sleek, streamlined look and feel. The blade is quality stainless steel, heat treated to Kershaw’s demanding specifications to bring out the best qualities in the steel, then titanium carbo-nitride coated for additional protection and performance. The slim handle is made of stainless steel with machined grooves that provide style and extra grip. The handle is titanium carbo-nitride coated, then sanded to reveal a shiny steel surface. A frame lock provides blade lockup security.
  • Flipper - May be used on either manual or assisted opening knives. The “flipper” is a protrusion on the back of the blade that the user can pull back on, or flip, in order to move the blade easily out of the handle.
  • Manual - There is no mechanical assist, such as SpeedSafe, used to open the folding knife. It opens the classic, old-school way.
  • Frame Lock - A portion of the handle (the knife frame) moves behind the blade to lock it into position during use. This is a safety feature of the knife.
  • Single Position - The pocketclip is in a fixed position on the knife handle; usually it is positioned for tip-down, right-handed carry, though this may vary.

Revising My Original Review Downward
Here's why this knife deserves to be knocked:-Refinement, refinement, refinment-The detent is too weak to hold the knife closed and this also makes flipping it open a chore that requires very intentional technique. -The coating on the blade is just not going to hold up and that detracts from the looks of the knife-The designer provided a design that is really nice, but all the lack of refinement from cheap washers, poor execution of the kershaw logo in he cutout of the handle and cheap way the clip is executed with a stand-off, just screams for refinement to match the design.It is an inexpensive knife, but there inexpensive knives that stay closed and flip properly. At this price, the design itself is worthy of the price, but the lack of manufacturing execution reminds me that it fails at the function of being an effective knife.

Great Value in an EDC Knife
I purchased the Nura on sale for under $18. For my money I got a slim handle that has a weighty feel, nice sharp upper mid level steel in the blade, one-handed flipper deployment and handy tip up clip carry. AT this price there is a lot of utility to be had in the Nura.On the down side is the fact that while the weighty handle feels substantial in the hand, it is a bit on the heavy side for its size. The flipper deployment requires a practiced motion. Rather than flipping open easily using a light switch motion, the finger needs to be placed on top of the flipper tab and pushed inward toward the handle with a crisp movement. That heavy steel frame means a heavy steel frame lock that is not very easy to disengage for closing. Is the Nura an ideal EDC knife? No. On the other hand, at less than $18 there is plenty to like.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
Cons: Lock Type, None
The Knife came in the mail today, I just ordered it the other day. Very fast for a few dollars shipping. This is a nice knife and for the price you just can not beat it! It looks good, feels good, opens smoothly and locks solid. I have only one problem, the blade lock is hard to unlock, it's a little stiffer then other systems of the same type. All and all, a good knife at a great price!
