Description
KS4035TIKVT: 4035TIKVT Nura 3.5
Kershaw Knives
 
Kershaw Knives joined forces with Belarusian knife maker Dmitry Sinkevich to create the Nura 3.5. With its 3.5-inch blade, the Nura 3.5 is a larger knife. For the same style in a slightly smaller knife, check out the Nura 3.0.

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 their own dedication to innovation and quality.

The Nura 3.5 features Kershaw's KVT ball-bearing system for super smooth, easy opening without a mechanical assist and minimal effort. 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 3.5 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.
Features
  • 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.

Pros: Weight, Handle Feel, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Good for the Price
Have put this knife in EDC rotation. It is large enough to do something with, but not solarge or heavy to atrach undue attention. atrachtive color, came sharp out of box. Does not deploy as smoothly as I would like hence 4 stars. However it is well made for the price and the handle fits my hand very well.

Cons: None
super slick and extremely well made
Super well designed and well made knife. A serious knife for serious work. The steel frame will hold up to heavy work. Frame is lightened in some ways, but this doesn't compromise strength. I've used this knife a lot for many weeks and the blade is still surprisingly sharp which indicates good steel. Ball detent holds knife closed in the pocket. Blade deploys smoothly with one hand motion using either left or right hand, and easier and more consistently than with standard Kershaw flipper. Flipper also works to keep hand from slipping onto blade during heavy use. Blade locks up super tight!! With some practice, blade can be unlocked and closed quickly with one hand. Ridges along back of knife nd on flipper give secure purchase during heavy use. It is heavier weight than the polymer handled knives, but one can use the Nura for heavy work with a lot more confidence. And it has a cool look that gets attention. If you're looking for a gentleman's knife to trim nails while in church, pick something else. But if you use your knife for real work, this is definitely one to look at.

Flipper?
I've purchased this knife (I'm a fan of Kershaw knives) few days ago. What I can say is that the design and materials are very good and the blade is very-very sharp! Anyway the flipper, based on ball-bearing, is very bad. I can't open the blade only pulling the flipper. The only way is to pull the flipper and then do a wrist rotation to let the blade open till the end. I wouldn't expect the same speed as the Leek, but again this is very unexpected and disappointing.
