tripoli edc again with another knife video this is the

kershaw

blur

kershaw

blur

that is the cpm m4 in gray aluminum this is a lynch pocket clip the regular pocket clip is deep carry so have it note it's usually black uh this comes in many different versions it's been made many different ways uh the regular version is black aluminum with these grips and I think it comes in black and satin. The s30v version is satin, I think. and the s30v version is about 90 dollars, the regular version is about 75 dollars and this version actually came out as a kind of special edition, it was also 75 dollars now, now Kershaw, um, I think from time to time he had, you know, they were well The knives that they had went on sale, so you can usually find a blurry image when they go on sale for I think 40 50 60 dollars somewhere out there.

I've seen them everywhere. That and the s30v, I think. I've seen about 55 or 60. Those are great deals when they come out and you should keep an eye out for them when they do, so I'll do a couple size comparisons and then talk about where it is currently. is on the market because this knife has been reviewed to death and there is no reason for a full review but let's go ahead and talk about some basics about it and talk about where it is on the market so here is the pair of three. and the two paramilitaries, you can see this is kind of an intermediate size.

More Interesting Facts About,

is the kershaw blur still good how about in m4 steel...

Here is the bench made griptilian and the bench made insect, very similar in size to the griptilian, in fact the griptilians are a pretty

good

size reference as you can see well I think. That's enough size comparisons, most people would be familiar with those knives in any case, this is an assisted knife a lot of people don't like assisted knives, I think on this knife it's totally fine, I think it's a bolt for the thumb, not a flipper. adds to the fact that it's totally well assisted, you know, the assist doesn't kick in until it's right here where the spring kicks in and then you get over it and it goes down, let me show people you get over it. about here, that's where it stops, pushes back, then you turn it off a little bit and it really takes off like nobody's business, so you know, someone who gets into knives and someone who likes it speed safety technology, um, yo.

I think it was originally designed to overcome some weaknesses in the knife game, but in the blur it makes sense. I think I would feel weird if I had a blur without it. The traction here is nice, not that different from the traction in the microtech socom. Pretty similar Elite, although the socoma is a little more like a rubber compound and this is more like a skateboard tape, but they feel very similar. The main thing I want to talk about here is the value proposition of the aluminum frame. Plus, it's extremely durable, speed safety technology makes it fun to use.

The recurve is a very useful blade shape, although it is underrated because it can be more difficult to sharpen for people using guided systems, so it is something to keep in mind. from and uh, uh, but this really gives you a platform to get really

good

deals on, you know, American made knives, so I think the blurs are made in America, yeah, you see the American flag right there, That means they are done. In the US, Canon uses the design, so you get a really good aluminum, m4

steel

, and an American design for an American manufacturer.
I have to say this one cost $75. They're reselling around 100, you know, 130 140. I've seen them like high like 150 uh mainly because m4 deserves to be in that price range. I was surprised when it came out at 75 and frankly it sold out immediately even though it was only released on Kershaw's website so that's cool but the s30v and uh go versions. on sale quite a bit uh and the 14c 28 versions go on sale quite a bit, both represent excellent values, but if you could ever find the s30v on sale, that's the value you should go for because I think I've seen them. as low as 50 60 dollars and you know I think maybe 55 is what I've seen them and that's a great value I mean you're talking about um you know s30v in the same range you know so the cgrb centers is one of my favorite budget knives for sure but you're talking about getting an f30v for about the same price as this one because it was about 50 bucks for the contoured micarta version of this right the original version is 35 but yeah you can get aluminum if you can get usa manufacturers chinese manufacturer if you can get s30v

steel

versus d2 right um if you can get brand name design this is dylan mallory this is ken onion right that's all in the same package for the same price when these when these things go on sale, it's a good value, the blur is

still

a great knife, great value in today's market.
I'm impressed by its longevity and as long as it continues to occupy the same pricing structure and no. Don't you know I'm experiencing surges like spyderco and benchmade have experienced over the years, mainly spyderco recently? I think it's going to last a long time and, frankly, you know it's going to be, I think it's going to be available as a budget premium. option for a long time and yes, the kershaw blur is one of the best budget options for the money when they are on sale. I wouldn't buy them at full price because they go on sale pretty seasonally, just a couple of times a year they go on sale, so I would wait until there's a sale, pick up a better version and then you'll get a tremendous deal or, you know , wait until one of these limited runs comes out at a crazy price. price like 75 dollars per m4 and uh and I immediately run out and grab it because that's just something amazing uh and something amazing now, like I said, they're reselling because they're reselling for, you know, anywhere, I think I've seen 130 140 150 I've also seen 120.
I actually sold this one for 110 just on my channel because it includes the 115 or whatever because it includes the clip, but these are reselling pretty high and deservedly so because again, you're dealing with m4, which just has , it's the competition for cutting steel, it's just tremendous edge retention, uh, it's one of the best super steels on the market, it was pretty much my favorite super steel, maybe other than uh, so, Crew Air, um, me too . I love 3v in fixed blades but in folders I like the use of gear and m4, but yes, I love my tool steels and I love seeing this.
I'm rambling a bit, but suffice it to say where it is currently on the market, especially during a sale, it's

still

a great deal, it's still a great bargain, it's still a great knife and I highly recommend it for anyone shopping in the under 60 range during the sales, so I hope this was helpful to you and let me know if you like this series. of the oldest type of knives where they are on the market today, go ahead and leave a comment and a like and hit the subscribe button, hit the notification bell for all my content, thank you very much.
