Now available in Australia are a large selection of well made folding knives produced in the U.S.A. by Kershaw. This reputable name in edge ware has been around for more than 40 years and represents good value for money. While many of their original styles are still available, Kershaw have introduced a variety of new models to choose from with the same quality of craftsmanship and their on-going Kershaw Limited Lifetime Warranty.
One such new series of folding blades, referred to as the Blur Series features new and unique grips incorporating anodized aluminium skeleton with rubber super grip Trac-Tec inserts made of an advanced material for safe secure grip. The Blur range is available in a variety of colours and styles and all feature a 3.4-inch blade using Sandvik 1428N Swedish steel in various finishes. This range also offers the choice of half serrated or standard drop point blade depending on the model you choose and all are hollow ground. These multi-task knives also feature Blur’s inset liner-lock to ensure the blade is secure during use. With several models to choose from, there’s even a tactical Blur referred to as the Blur Tanto Black with modified tanto style blade and partial serration.
