KS4030TIKVT: 4030TIKVT Nura 3.0
Kershaw Knives
Kershaw Knives joined forces with Belarusian knife maker Dmitry Sinkevich to create the Nura 3.0. With its 3-inch blade, the Nura 3.0 is a right-sized knife. For the same style in a larger knife, check out the Nura 3.5.

Sinkevich's personal emphasis is on knives that incorporate intelligent design, state-of-the-art materials, and have a strong emphasis on quality fit and finish. That made him a natural fit with Kershaw and our own dedication to innovation and quality.

The new Nura features Kershaw’s KVT ball-bearing system for smooth, easy opening without a mechanical assist. Instead, the user pulls back on a flipper and the blade moves out of the handle quickly and easily. The key is a washer with caged ball bearings that surrounds the pivot and makes opening the knife nearly frictionless.

The Nura handle design has a sleek, streamlined look and feel. The blade is quality stainless steel, heat treated to Kershaw’s demanding specifications to bring out the best qualities in the steel, then titanium carbo-nitride coated for additional protection and performance. The slim handle is made of stainless steel with machined grooves that provide style and extra grip. The handle is titanium carbo-nitride coated, then sanded to reveal a shiny steel surface. A frame lock provides blade lockup security.
  • Flipper - May be used on either manual or assisted opening knives. The “flipper” is a protrusion on the back of the blade that the user can pull back on, or flip, in order to move the blade easily out of the handle.
  • Manual - There is no mechanical assist, such as SpeedSafe, used to open the folding knife. It opens the classic, old-school way.
  • Frame Lock - A portion of the handle (the knife frame) moves behind the blade to lock it into position during use. This is a safety feature of the knife.
  • Single Position - The pocketclip is in a fixed position on the knife handle; usually it is positioned for tip-down, right-handed carry, though this may vary.

Cons: None
This is a great knife!
There is nothing wrong with this knife. The reviewers giving this knife only one star are nuts! You get amazing value for the price you pay. It's a frame lock, not a liner lock. That's great for $20. The construction is all metal, not plastic. I see people complaining that this folder does not have assisted opening. That's because it doesn't have that feature! It even says in the description, "without mechanical assist". It's right there if you read the description. Don't give the knife a bad review because you weren't paying attention to what you were buying! But I can assure you that the knife opens just fine with a very gentle flick of your wrist. It requires very little effort. Personally, I like the action of this knife. It's very easy to open, and it's even easier to close. The pocket clip may turn away some potential buyers. Tip up is the only position. But you can mount the clip on either the left or right side, depending on your personal preference. Honestly, this knife works great. I have no issues with the pocket clip position. I can open it very easily with one hand. There's nothing I can complain about. For $20, you're practically robbing Knife Center.

Pros: Pocket Clip, Handle Feel, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Weight, Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Lock Ease of Use, None
Overall an excellent knife for the price
Used for EDC, Very sharp out of the box, and is holding an excellent edge. Another reviewer complained of the knife opening while in their pocket. It happened to me the 2'nd day of carrying when removing my wallet. Has not happened again. Just more careful removing my wallet. Clip was a little tight, but fine after a simple adjustment. This is my first flipper. It took about a week to get used to it. Overall an excellent knife. This is my second Kershaw, and the better of the 2. The only reason I could not give it 5 stars, is because it is not made in the USA.

Pros: Handle Feel, None
Cons: Ease of Opening, Pocket Clip
so so knife
I cannot remove the clip. It has been put in so well that taking it off is impossible. There is no assist in the flipper opening, so I am unable to flip it into a locked open position.
