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 black Blur has, as you might expect, 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.
