Is this a BLEM? Kershaw's quality control very commonly sells knives off as BLEM coded, and this price point is right on par with Kershaw BLEM pricing.

Hope not, I already jumped on some. The Blur is such a great knife though, I'd probably still be ok with it. Missed the previous black ones.

$109 list price? I think that's a bit high..

The blemish ones should have xxxx on the blade and you can't tell from the pics because it would be on the opposite side that is shown.

That is not the same knife, not even the same steel. This steel is an upgrade over the one you linked.

Yep, KershawGuy.com is selling this very knife for $39 -- and with no factory warranty.

Do these carry a factory warranty?

I have had this knife for years. It is hand down one of my favorites. The assisted opening is quick and solid and the grip is great as well.

I actually just bought this same knife (solid black rather than the tiger stripe) from Sports Chalet for $80. This is a great deal for a great knife!!!

If "assisted opening" means spring loaded, the knife is illegal in ALL of New York State.

This is a terrific knife. Small enough to comfortably ride in your pocket. The speedsafe is the best feature. Very easy to flip the knife open, fast! I bought mine for $60. Blade is still very sharp after a few camping trips and casual use opening boxes and other random things. This is a great deal. Might have to go in for another.

Here's the same knife on Amazon, in black, instead of Tiger Striped:

I'm lost.
I've gone to look for myself.
If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

Assisted opening, in this case, is the small thumb 'knob' on the side of the blade, close to the base/hinge. Used to 'assist' one-handed opening of the knife. Not spring loaded.

No, that's a Kershaw reseller.

Just noticed there's no finger flipper on the blade like the Leek, Scallion & Chive; only the thumb studs.

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!"

Blur is a great knife.
I just hate the Tanto blade, and never use serrated blades.
Good deal if you like this blade, though.

Anyone find out if this is a XXXX knife?

Not true at all. The "Speed Safe" system refers to the stainless steel TORSION BAR that is inside the knife. That is why the the blade flips open with a little push. (I have a pile of Kershaw knives)

In for one, and I live right in Manhattan, zipcode 10023.

Why do the specs not include size open, size closed, or even a weight?

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.

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.

These are definitely solid knives, had mine for years until I broke the tip trying to pry something(ya that was dumb i know)

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

Kershaw,,,rather have one of their big brother knives from Zero Tolerance...and if you are not cutting twine or string or rope the serrated edge is a waste of cutting area...plus that portion of the blade is very difficult to sharpen if you do your own sharpening...I just bought the CRKT knife this week from woot and its a great EDC knife.
