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.
