The BDZ-1 steel is sure sharp!
I think this will be my next new EDC!

I see one bad thing about posting from an Android phone...
No way to edit the pics after you take them; just snap & post. ::td::

The phone is so small I can't tell if the pic is in focus or not. ::disgust::

Ahah! It's a Blur. How do you and the Tanto blades get along?

I like them if they are ground properly and can get really sharp, like this one.
The point on it is really fine for fine detail cutting and the elbow in the cutting edge works well for precision cutting that requires a bit more force.
I didn't think I would like them and steered clear of them for years but once I tried a good one I was hooked.
I still like my traditional knives, but I almost always have one "tactical" knife on me in additional to traditional patterns.


There are a couple improvements I would suggest to Kershaw on the Blur:
1- Make it a true flipper and not an A/O.
2- A chisel grind on the blade would make it even sharper!


BTW, does anyone here have any observations about the BDZ-1 steel? This is the first time I have used this steel.
It is hard to judge it from a couple days use, but so far I am impressed.

Dale, I love those Al Mars.
Ditto. Just found your Al Mars today. Not only do the Al Mars perform well but are about the most comsistently handsome production knives I know of.

When Al was alive (he died in 1992), his knives had the best fit and finish of any production knife of that time, better than the F & F of most custom knives of that era.

Al had a degree in design from a college in CA. He put that knowledge into the design of his knives and other products reflects, which those products show. Al also had a line of tactical gear he designed that reflected his penchant for designing items with real world practicality and style. I sure wish I had picked up one of his Tac Jackets when they were available! ::dang::
