    Not a bad knife... Kershaw is good name and it should stay sharp for a fairly long time as long as your aren't trying to cut through concrete.

    Just don't lose this one.:mamoru:

    Awesome knife, I've carried mine for the past 2 years daily. Grip-tape stuff is still grippy, knife sharpens well. Only problem I had was a screw walked out on the pocket clip. Emailed kershaw and they sent me two new screws and a pocket clip as well.

    Threw on some loctite and havent had another problem since.

    Terrible knife. I have one, the AO broke after 6 months, and the lock has failed twice. I don't carry or use it for anything any more.

    I know. But a failed lock is a failed design, in my opinion. Either I'll get it replaced with a fixed blade, if they ever come out with one I like, or I'll trade it straight across for another Blur and chuck it up on Ebay.

    So one failed = failed designed. Every company must have failed at everything than

    It's the third knife I've owned to have a liner lock fail, the other two have been Benchmade and Spyderco.

    So in this case, yes, failed lock = failed design. I don't buy any liner lock knives any more.

    Needs more Columbia River.

    my buddy rocks this:
    [​IMG]

    He said he cousin in iraq was able to stab through a car door with one, and decided that was reason enough to pick up one for my friend when it was his birthday.


    Also, the blade has a locking "safety" to keep the blade from closing on accident once opened.

    That's some serious shit when you think about it.

    Meh, it's a pain to close the knife, but it seems like the added knowledge that your knife isn't going to close on you when you need to use it is pretty cool imo.

    My buddy like's his knife so far and looks to be the same model. Do you think it's a design flaw or maybe something that just messed up on your knife?

    What the fuck are you doing to your knives that breaks a liner lock?





    Blurs are nice, but I can't say I would have bought one with that blade style.

    The lock doesn't break, it fails. By that I mean that it does not engage the blade fully, and that any pressure on the spine of the blade will cause the lock to disengage, and the blade to fold back into the handle.

    i have a leek as my daily carry and i love it. i dont bother with the locks tho, i tightened the screw in the unlock position so i would never have to worry about it not opening when i need it to.

    I've pretty much used mine for everything from cutting cars apart in extrications to prybars to cutting seatbelts to using it as a steak knife. Never had a problem with the lock or assisted opening, dunno what the hell you ass-gaskets are doing to fuck yours up in a hurry. :rofl:

    What do I do to mine? I use them. Cutting, slicing, splitting, stabbing, etc. The kershaw failed when I was trying to baton it through some wood, the benchmade failed when I was trying to split an earring clasp for a coworker (that's the only one that actually caught me off guard and cut me - I still have nerve damage in my hand from that one), and the Spyderco didn't fail in my hands, a friend was using it to free a stuck tent peg.

    Of those three, the only knife I still actually own is the Kershaw, and just manipulating it in my hands, I can force a failure pretty easily, I did it twice just now. Would you like a video?

    In Benchmade's defense, they did replace the knife free of charge with a knife of my choice (that turned out to be more expensive, on MSRP), no questions asked. I threw away the Spyderco since it was cheap anyway, and Kershaw has offered a replacement, but I don't know what I want since all their knives seem to be either monolock or liner lock. I'll probably have to get a fixed blade if anything.
