Kershaw | Blur | S30V
Take a step up in the world of Kershaw Blurs with the S30V Blur. This Blur features a blade of S30V powdered stainless steel. Powdered steel is dense and fine-grained, enabling it to take and hold an extremely fine edge for a longer period of time. The steel exhibits excellent toughness, wear resistance and hardness. Like all Blurs, the S30V Blur has a slightly recurved blade that’s ideal for multitasking, providing top slicing and piercing capabilities. The S30V Blur has a stonewashed finish for a roughed-up, non-reflective look.

I love the size and heft of this knife. It's not heavy, but it feels solid in my hand. The blade has a really nice recurve and the thumb studs are ramped, making it very easy to open using my thumb tip rather than my thumbnail.
However, they really went overboard on the whole 'grippy' thing. The sides have some sort of coating that feels like a coarse emery board. By itself it's not too bad, but in conjunction with the very tight pocket clip, it will shred your pants pocket in short order. Also, the pocket clip is not deep carry (it's the exact same as on the Leek) and leaves about an inch of the knife sticking up out of your pocket.
I ended up buying a deep carry clip from Lynch Northwest (shown in the picture). I'm still pretty careful when sliding it into my pocket, but now I'm happy with it. Wish it came with this kind of clip from the factory.
Awesome knife, different grind than the standard blur, wich I believe is a hollow grind, this one is like a mid-high flat with a swedge and it's just as good, and in a better steel to boot. Nice stonewash will hide scratches we'll, and that sweet solid blur action.
Solid EDC. Durable yet sleek to fit easily in the pocket.
