The Kershaw Blur 1670blkst with Black handle and partially serrated blade is a great utility knife for everyday use. Like all Blurs it?s equipped with a big, slightly recurved blade that?s ideal for multitasking. The blade shape offers both excellent slicing and piercing capabilities and the high-performance Sandvik 14C28N stainless blade steel offers corrosion resistance and hardness. The black Blur has a DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coated blade for extra corrosion resistance and enhanced looks. This Blur’s partially serrated blade provides additional cutting power for making short work of rope, cord, and other fibrous materials. As you might expect, the black Blur has black handles with Trac-Tec grip-tape handle inserts for an extremely solid grip. The handle itself is durable 6061-T6 anodized aluminum, sometimes described as ?aircraft aluminum? since it is a common material used for aircraft fittings. But the main point is that it?s lightweight, extremely durable, and?when anodized?accepts a dye so we can create colored handles that are scratch resistant and extra tough.
