Sometimes you need a dedicated knife, not a multi-tool, to get the job done — including when that job is staying alive.

Kershaw’s been making quality blades in the USA since 1974, and their folding knives are the perfect thing to throw in your pocket or bag during your outdoor adventures. The partially serrated blades offer a great deal of cutting power, and the Sandvik 14C28N steel they use is (apparently) the highest performing knife steel in the world.

The blades deploy with one hand — just apply manual pressure to the flipper or thumb stud — and the “Trac-Tec” grip (rough-surfaced inserts) mean your knife won’t slip when you need it most.

While they’re certainly great for everyday use (like cutting open boxes), the Kershaw Blur is also ideal for emergencies: it features a glassbreaker tip and the blades can saw through cords and seatbelts.

On sale now at Amazon, the Blur knives are up to 48% off, depending on the model — though the black-handled Glassbreaker model with the black blade is certainly the most striking.
