KS4035TIKVT: 4035TIKVT Nura 3.5

Kershaw Knives

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

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 their own dedication to innovation and quality.

The Nura 3.5 features Kershaw's KVT ball-bearing system for super smooth, easy opening without a mechanical assist and minimal effort. 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 3.5 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.

Pros: Handle Feel, Weight, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Ease of Opening, Overall Quality, None
Good knife, not great, but inexpensive.
I really like the design. Feels good in your hand, its a great size. It sounds like they have problems making a consistant flipping action. On mine the closed detent is weak, therefore it won't flip with enough force to get the blade all the way to lock. I will probably tune it, but being a flipper, it should probably work when you get it. I previously ordered one of these used from amazon and it had so much blade play it was probably dangerous. I think someone tried to tune that one too much. I returned it the same day I got it. All in all, this knife is a good value, just know that it might need to be tweaked to be a good functioning flipper. Oh yeah, it did come very sharp. They seem to have no problems in that area.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, None
Cons: Handle Material, Overall Quality, Weight, Ease of Opening
the flipper is poorly designed and rough/hard on your finger for use, and deployment really needs a flick of the wrist to help the blade out. This is a manual flipper and the action is not fast and not reliable. I won't carry this and I wouldn't buy it again,
