Blur, Elmax / Stonewash
A BLUR IN ELMAX
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 überhigh-performance Böhler Uddeholm ELMAX, a third-generation powdered steel. Incredibly clean, ELMAX has virtually no nonmetallic inclusions and offers an extremely uniform distribution of carbides. A high chromium-vanadium-molybdenum alloyed steel, ELMAX combines high wear resistance with corrosion resistance. The handle is durable 6061-T6 anodized aluminum, sometimes described as “aircraft aluminum” since it is a common material used for aircraft fittings with Trac-Tec grip-tape handle inserts for an extremely solid grip. But the main point is that it’s lightweight, extremely durable, and when anodized accepts a dye so Kershaw can create colored handles that are scratch resistant and extra tough. For easy one-handed opening, the Blur is equipped with SpeedSafe assisted opening. A short push on the thumbstud overcomes the resistance built into the torsion bar in the SpeedSafe mechanism. The SpeedSafe takes over and the blade moves out of the handle quickly and easily. One-handed opening is easy with SpeedSafe. The pocket clip is reversible for your choice of tip-up or tip-down carry. There’s even a pre-drilled lanyard hole.
