Kershaw Knives
 
The Tanto Blur offers all the great grip advantages of the other Blurs on the force, but this one offers tactical styling with a modified tanto blade with partial serration.

With its angled shape, the tanto blade provides additional piercing power to penetrate tough materials. The unique shape puts more steel behind the point to support its piercing tasks. We’ve also found that the short front edge is particularly handy for opening boxes. For razor sharpness, Kershaw hollow grinds the edge. Then for additional versatility, Kershaw added partial serration to the blade, giving you a great tool for cutting through materials such as webbing or rope.

All this makes the Tanto Blur a good choice for situations in which you’re going to need to make an impact on your environment. In an emergency, could be a real lifesaver. The Tanto Blur’s blade is built of high-performance Sandvik 14C28N stainless blade steel for corrosion resistance and hardness. The black DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coating provides additional extra corrosion resistance and is non-reflective. Black anodized aluminum handles of durable 6061-T6 aircraft aluminum with sure-grip Trac-Tec inserts complete the Tanto Blur’s discrete, matte look.
Features
  • 2-Step Serration
  • Serrations assist in cutting through particularly tough or fibrous material, such as rope or cord. The Kershaw 2-step serration is a more aggressive style of serration.
  • 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.
  • SpeedSafe
  • 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.
  • Reversible
  • 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 Kershaw's knives, it means the knife was made in their Tualatin, Oregon manufacturing facility by skilled Kershaw knifemakers.

Still my EDC knife...
I bought mine about ten years ago now. The date stamp says Oct '08, made in the USA, not China like it is now... I'm proud of my knife, to put it simply... I have carried it with me every day since I bought it and it's my favorite by far. I've owned a great many folding knives in the past and few of them last as well as this had so far. I don't abuse the knife by any stretch of the imagination, and refuse to use it for everyday stuff, like cutting cardboard, prying and cutting things that will basically fubar the edge... Instead, I mainly use it to cut plastic off packages, and other small stuff like such, but rarely, because it's my bee sting and splinter remover. I have other, cheaper knives to abuse for the other stuff. Right tool for the job and all that, ya know. Mine has been worn in a bit now, and the shiny metal is showing around the edges. I think it makes it have a bit more character, considering that it's been with me for so long. By the way, it's still razor sharp she takes a good edge when I need to hone it. I've nicked the edge a few times and it takes a minute to get the edge back, but I can literally shave hair with it, and I write say it's sharper than when I first bought it. My only complaints would probably be that the steel could be a little better, but it's not bad. The other thing is the clip... I haven't had one on my knife since I accidentally snagged the clip on a stupid double patio door latch... It actually ripped my pants halfway down my leg and the knife fell to the floor. One of those tiny little screws actually broke off from the shearing action and I had to take the other screw out to remove the clip, which I still have. I would love to find another set of screws to replace and put the clip back on. It makes the blade very thin feeling in my rather large hand, and I have to hold it very carefully when opening. I actually bent the tip of the blade during that incident with the broken clip and ripped trousers. It was not a very serious bend, but made it impossible to resharpen on that side until I set the tip on a penny and tapped it with a rounded edge to flatten it again. I would buy another just like it if I could afford to, but I don't know about the made in China version they make now. Regardless, it's a splendid knife and if you're looking for a keeper, I would highly recommend this knife. After all, even an honest man needs to carry a knife sometimes...

Cons: Weight, Handle Feel, None
Nice.
This knife was a surprise. It's a Kershaw so you have modest expectations but this knife was a pleasant surprise. Clean and well constructed. Blade very sharp. Nicely proportioned. Assist was quick and sure as was the lock. My only complaint and its rather personal: the balanced seems a bit blade heavy. Overall I think this is a good value and a useful knife for EDC and daily use. Wish they made a blk plain blade but you can't have everything.

Cons: Pocket Clip
Great edc with one small complaint
I use this at work, cardboard and occasional strapping. It accomplishes all task. My only nitpick is the shallow clip. I tend to wear jeans and a few have leather pocket inserts, the clip seems more fitting for thinner pockets. Other than that it’s been a great knife
