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.

Frame Lock
Frame Lock
Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.
Pocket Clip
Pocket Clip
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
Steel Handles
Steel Handles
Stainless Steel knife handles provide strength and durability while using chromium oxide to create a rust-resistant barrier.
8CR13 Stainless Steel
8CR13 Stainless Steel
Considered a value steel, 8Cr13 steel provides adequate corrosion resistance but with slightly more carbon than AUS-8, it will sharpen up and hold an edge better.

Pros: None
Cons: Ease of Opening, Lock Type, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
Cheap Knife -- don't waste your money.
I bought this on sale and figured how could I go wrong. Here's what I don't like about it: 1. There's no spring assist. While it has a flip lever you have to also flick the knife with your wrist to get it to open the whole way into the lock position. 2. The blade doesn't really lock closed. While there's a slight detent for the blade to stay in the closed position, it really doesn't. 3. The blade points up in relation to the pocket clip. Given that it the blade doesn't lock closed this opens up the possibility for the knife to open when pulling out of your pocket and either getting caught on your pants or cutting you. That said the knife looks nice and the blade is ok so I guess I should have set expectations properly for a $16, made in China Kershaw. If I had to do it over again I'd just put the money towards a better quality knife.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Lock Ease of Use, Handle Feel, Pocket Clip, Lock Type
Cons: None
Lefty friendly after all!
So...first things first...the clip is easily swapped for left hand ccarry. Now...the knife itself...came sharp with good grinds. Tight lock up and no blade is however slightly off center when biggie in this price point. The detent is a little weak so its not "as" great a flipper as it could be...but with proper technique its not bad and needs no wrist. All in all...a good knife at regular price... A great knife at the sale price. While it's certainly no shiro...its a neat 3 inch bladed option. Thanks for reading.
