Jerry & Dale,
I was in Cabela's today and they had a sale on the Kershaw Blur. They had one left at $39.99. It's the sandvik 14c28n blade steel. A black one, with tiger stripe on the blade. so, I now own a Blur. Seems like a good knife, I've been carrying it all day.

The darn thumb studs have some very sharp edges, so if I run my hand in my pocket, I get some pretty good scratches on my skin. Doesn't feel very good. Other than that, it's fine.

New Link came the other day. Nice weight to it, and clips point up. Not too sure about this blackwash finish, going to have to see how it holds up. I usually stay away from coated blades and stick to nice satin finishes. :D

Mike, I like the blade profile but what is that handle color? Is that gray?

It's gray, but it does seem to have a rosy tint to it also, even in outdoor lighting.

I can't complain, stole it for $23 shipped off eBay, NIB. It did have a slight tipped blade. looks like the blade must have dropped right on the point. Either way, it took about 15 secs on the belt sander to re-profile the edge to cover it up. I think the tanto shape made it easier, as I would have had to lose more blade if it had been a drop point. 8)

I normally prefer a satin or even polished finish to coated on modern folders, but my blackwashed Leek has held up nicely. I've seen some well-used ones that didn't show finish loss at all, even as the blade had been sharpened down some. I'm not sure how I feel about a blackwashed blade with a satin handle like that but the all-blackwashed knives look right. ::tu::
