Kershaw introduces the BlackWash rendition of its beloved black Blur, enhancing its popular design with a weathered appearance akin to your favorite pair of jeans that have stood the test of time.

The BlackWash finish not only lends the blade a pre-aged charm but also provides an added layer of safeguarding for the metal, effectively concealing any minor scratches that may occur during regular usage. True to the Blur lineage, this variant boasts a generously sized, slightly recurved blade, perfect for versatile tasks requiring both slicing and piercing capabilities. Crafted from high-performance Sandvik 14C28N stainless steel, the blade combines corrosion resistance with exceptional edge retention.


The handle, constructed from robust 6061-T6 anodized aluminum, colloquially known as "aircraft aluminum," reflects its lightweight, durable nature. This material, commonly used in aircraft fittings, not only provides structural strength but also accepts dye effectively. Kershaw utilizes this property to create scratch-resistant and robust colored handles. The addition of Trac-Tec grip-tape inserts ensures a secure grip in various conditions.


Facilitating easy one-handed opening, the Blur incorporates SpeedSafe assisted opening technology. The reversible pocket clip allows for tip-up or tip-down carry, catering to personal preferences.


Key Features:

  • SpeedSafe®: Facilitates swift and effortless one-handed opening with a manual push on the thumbstud or pull back on the flipper, a hallmark of many Kershaw bestsellers.
  • Inset Liner Lock: Integrates a strip of stainless steel within the handle, maintaining strength and security while reducing weight in lightweight handle materials.
  • Reversible: Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable users to alter the tip position or the side for carrying.
  • Made In The USA: A mark denoting expert craftsmanship at Kershaw's Tualatin, Oregon manufacturing facility by skilled Kershaw knifemakers.
