I have both of these. The Kershaw feels much better to me and serrated blades are a choice that many prefer. The CRKT is nice too for a non assisted opener but speedsafe blows it away for one handed use. Both are excellent EDC knives.

We still have yet to hear back from Woot Staff.

Hopefully we'll have an answer later this morning. We'll post an update as soon as we hear back.

Thanks for your continued patience.

Eh... Nice enough and all... but I can't stand semi-serrated.

Geystone1: I am the outdoor buyer here at Woot. These knives are not BLEM. This knife is first quality and carries all manufacturer warranties.

I need to have an idea of how small it is in my hand, or how big / heavy it is in my pocket. A 3.4 inch blade length ain't cutting it for a spec page.

Per the manufacturer, here are the specs:

Blade Length 3.4 in. (8.6 cm)
Closed Length 4.5 in. (11.4 cm)
Overall Length 7.9 in (20 cm)
Weight 3.9 oz (110.5 g)


Yeah, I guess I can research it on other web sites, but if you wanna make an extra sale, you need to give an accurate pitch.

Does this knife have the SpeedSafe assisted opening system?

Yes. Look at the picture. It's on the case.

I looked at the picture. There is no mention of SpeedSafe assisted opening system. Can someone confirm whether this knife on Woot has SpeedSafe?

So the words Speedsafe on the case don't close that question for you? It has it. I own several of these in various styles. Speedsafe only represents one thing...look at the picture and the words are there.

You can see it in the bigger picture on the Woot homepage. Definitely speedsafe. Speedsafe rocks.

Sorry about that guys. I was looking at the pictures from my phone, and even on the full desktop site it didn't clearly show "SpeedSafe". I saw the USA so thought the first word as Manufactured or Made In.

Went on Woot from desktop and saw that this knife does say SpeedSafe.

Another question. How does this compare to the Tactical Black Serrated tanto blade made from 13C26 stainless steel blade that's on Amazon for a similar price?

The 14C28N steel on this one is more corrosion-resistant and holds an edge slightly longer.

I much prefer the flipper on assisted opening knives. I've got an assisted CRKT that only has thumb studs, and while I've never been bit by it, every time I open it something in the back of my mind says "look out!"



Don't discount the Blur just because it doesn't have the (index finger) flipper. This thumb stud activated SpeedSafe is unique in the thumb stud design. It's a great knife. That being said,

Kershaw Blur - love it
Tiger stripe - nice
Tanto blade - not my cup of tea
Partial serration - naah
Trac-Tec insert - great for holding on
Trac-Tec insert - not so great to any fabric when you use the pocket clip
14C28N blade - pretty good but I'd prefer S30V

At this price you'd be a fool not getting 3!

I purchased mine as a blem and was very pleased with the quality. The only visible defect was a tiny nick near the bottom of the handle. Other than that worked great for many years



Check out their warranty page and FAQs. You can probably send that knife in and get a new blade installed for 10 bucks.

absolutely. the tanto style blade is one of the least useful knives you can create. it really only has that one use.

Exactly. Every time the words "list price" or "retail price" appear, they are a total scam. No one has ever come remotely close to paying $110 for this knife. These sell all day long for $35-50 on ebay.

Or just maybe I've got enough knives at the moment. (Heresy, I know!)

Way high. I've never paid more than $60 for a good knife.

Got mine today and it feels pretty solid. It came with a used pocket clip on it though, its all scratched up looking. Pretty weird. The rest of the knife looks great.
