As a tactical folder it hits all the wickets I look for in an EDC pocket knife. It’s ideal size at only 4.5 inches closed and a 3.4 inch blade. It is made in the USA so the construction is, of course, top-notch even though the weight is a mere 4 ounces.
The knife kind of takes you by surprise with the smooth and ease of the assisted opening, its lightning quick but very manageable. The angled thumb studs are notched for grip when activating the assisted open.

On this particular model it has a combination of a two-step serration and a smooth blade that comes together in a nice for stabbing tanto style tip. The blade is held in place in the common manner of an inset liner lock that is a bit easier to disengage than some that I have struggled to push to close.

The handle of the Blur has Trac-Tec inserts that provide an amazing grip on the tool for stabbing, slashing, or just opening MREs. The entire knife is coated in a black DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) that gives the knife a little extra corrosion protection.
