Very sharp out of the box
This is the first and probably the last assisted opening folder I will own. Not because I have any gripes with the knife itself, but because assisted openers are somewhat of a grey area where I'am from.(The local distributer for SOG disables the assisted opening feeature for their knives before sale.)Ok, about the knife itself. Its light, feels good in your hands when you're using it, the blade is VERY sharp out of the box and the SpeedSafe assisted opening is a blast to play with. My only problem with the Blur is with opening it initially, rubbed my thumbs raw on the thumbstuds which are a little sharp/rough around the edges and also because I wasn't used to them yet. The pocket clip is slightly stiff and difficult to get to clip on your pants pocket initiallt but it gets better over time. Though I think the end of the clip can be made to protrude out less as it caught on and tore a small tear in the side bolsters of the driver side bucket seat in my car.Other than that, its a great knife!
