    After my thread asking for suggestions on a new knife, I decided on a kershaw, and just landed a new kershaw blur with the s30v blade for $35. That is a good deal, right?

    Got it from the local classifieds. The dude bought it online, and then decided that anything but spyderco sucked (kind of reminded me of the glock crowd :evil:). Got the idea from all of the internet experts :rolleyes: Well, his loss is my gain.

    Im not sure about the "s30v" but i have a kershaw blur that i paid $55 for. So $35 is a great price. I love my kershaw blur, its my most favorite knife ive ever owned. In fact, i bought two since i "lost" the first one (fell into someones couch, almost unretreivable).

    I've had two tanto blurs, and while I love the knife overall, I'm not a big fan of the tanto blade. Harder to sharpen. I traded the first one back to wal-mart when I broke the tip off, and now I just broke the tip off of the second one three days ago trying to pry a staple jam out of a stapler. Wal-mart won't take it back b/c they no longer carry it and I don't have a reciept.

    I love the "Blur".

    I used to carry a Randal King Phantom Reflex, but after a student sent me a "blur" following an edged weapons seminar we put on, I got curious about it.

    Started messing around with it some...and now its my daily carry. Solidly built, quick opening, takes a pretty good edge, easy to maneuver into a reverse grip, etc...

    Razels are grinded out by the Graham Brothers www.grahamknives.com
    IDK about the forging, as there is the Paul Bos heat treat mark, right next to the Graham mark.

    I ended up buying a Mid-Tech Stars n Stripes Ringed Razel XL awhile back. Came to me wicked sharp, and still is with only some minor sharpening. Its my EDC utility knife. As I won't use my other knives for mundane things. Haven't found a job the razel couldn't handle, but not really going out of my way to find anything anyway.


    Word of advise, treat these like a Karambit, don't spin them no matter HOW cool it looks or seems. I very nearly had to take a friend to the emergency room the first week I got it. He was spinning it around and nicked himself on his vein. By this I mean he nicked the skin above the vein, not the vein itself.

    Also, Corndogg, Razel's nice, and the Bos heat treat is top notch, but its still not a prybar. You're better off finding a Atwood PryBaby or something like it.
