Deal Details

I just started getting into pocket knives, and I've been buying them like crazy so here are some deals that I would like to share. Note: This is a spinoff of the recent 2x Kershaw Cryo thread

Right now, Amazon.com is having a huge knife sale. At the same time, they are having a promotion on Kershaw Knives until March 25: Save $10 on your $50 Kershaw Knife Purchase. There is huge savings to be made here on some good finds. Prices are changing constantly and the deal only applies to items sold by Amazon.com. Make separate orders because the deal does not appear to stack and is only applied once per $50+ order. All Kershaw Knives on Sale [amazon.com]

See wiki for specific deals.

Prices are going up and down all the time, and these are only a few of the knives that I found and were interesting to me. If you find a better deal, post it!

what was the blem on your tanto blur? would you rec the blem or new version? I can live with a small cosmetic imperfection...thanks!
The blem was indeed a very small cosmetic imperfection. It's the first thing I looked for, and I had to look hard. I wouldn't have even considered it an imperfection, just something acceptable, not too unlike coin grading. It would fall in the mint catagory, 100% full luster (66-70, 70 being perfect) it would be a 67 or 68. Ok, lol, this is the part you were waiting for. After a very critical exam, the blem is a tiny fade in the black coating. And I'm talking tiny. I wouldn't have even considered it a flaw, just part of the manufacturing process, but after taking a magnified glass to it and not finding anything else, I came to that conclusion. I'd post a picture, but in wouldn't show in the bandwidth they allow to upload here. I'd have to macro pic it at least 5 megapixels and I'm not sure my camera goes that low and my iPhone just can't get close enough to show the contrast in the coating. It's with is less than a dime and as long as three dimes stacked. Like I said, you'd only know it was there if you were told it was. Great deal for $30. If I were you, and had I known, I'd get the one with S30V steel. Sure it's another $30 bucks, but you get a liftime warrantee with free sharpening (won't be too much of an issue with this steel but you'll be glad because of the recurve blade). And blade shape, btw, the tanto with its partial serration, is 90% tactical, not a great choice for EDC unless that would be its purpose. For practical everyday use, the S30V blade with a slight recurve should be your first choice. In hindsite it would have been mine.

At one point last Nov. the Blur S30V was priced at 67 and they were offering the 10 off 50 deal which brought it down to 57. I hesitated and the price went to 72 which is about where it is now. I have the rescue already and would like to get the S30V but my hesitation is that the blurs are just too heavy to be an EDC. So my rescue sits on my desktop.
It does seem heavy at first. My EDC was one of my three Leeks for almost 5 years (I kept misplacing mine and my Dad, RIP, would keep replacing it for me, only for me to refind the misplaced one). The Blur only weighs 4 oz, which is not bad considering the twice as expensive ZT0350 in more than 50% heavier at 6.2 oz. The Leek is my most comfortable EDC, and I didn't get to many 'strange' looks when I would cut up my huge Fuji apple everyday. I'm sure it will triple when I do decide to switch to one of my Blurs, especially so with the serrated tanto. One thing I don't love about the Blurs are the rubber like inserts in the handle for gripping, which maybe to a fault, it does to well. If you ware jeans and have a tight front pocket (if that is your pocket of choice) it does not like to smoothly slide out. Wish it had a textured handle like the ZT0560. If you can't see yourself getting used to its heft, the Leek or the slightly smaller Scallion are awesome choices. If I were you, I'd get one of each!Big Grin

Yes, if you ask me that's the biggest blemmish on any of the blem models! The blems have XXXX stamped on the side of the blade, and it would just stare at me every time I use it.

do the blems not have kershaw warranty?

is kershaw warranty good and does it include free sharpening for life?

is it worthy buying retail just to get the warranty?

Blems have no warrantees

Kershaw's warrantees do include lifetime sharpening

These prices aren't close to retail, never pay retail, that word is Blasphemous here! LOL. To answer you, it all depends. For a tactical knife that's not likely to be used, e.g. A tanto Blur, I'd say no. It's not a great knife (blade type) IMO for everyday use. The same Blur with the recurve blade, I'd say yes if it's not significantly more, which is subjective and only you can answer. Just so you know, I have read that the recurve blades are a pain to sharpen, so the free sharpening would come in handy. And if your a heavy knife user, any problems that occurs years from now get fixed or replaced for free.
And as someone else noted, the four XXXX's across the blade does not make you want to show it off, which is a shame for such beautifully functional knives.

It's a step in the right direction, but blade length allowed is only 6 cm (2.36"). And when did the government start giving measurements in metric units?
Add this to the list of 'promises' never filled.Frown We were told 5 decades ago that the metric system would be universal...guess we're still waiting on THAT...along with :

Middle East peace--
Bi-partisan cooperation in Washington--
Synchronized traffic lights--
Women's shoes that fit--

And don't get me started on flying cars!Big Grin

Coachrick, just going to be playful here.

Concerning the metric system, it was the American people who resisted its implication, besides, is it not preferable to not implement something people don't want. Also, it was never promised or forced, it was completely voluntary (except for government agencies). The U.S. Metric Study recommended that the United States implement a carefully planned transition to the principal use of the metric system. Not sure who's still waiting for it? It is on the other hand considered universal. Currently there are 240 countries around the world, and the USA is the only one not using the metric system. The last two holdouts were Liberia and Burma, which covered in 2007 leaving just us.

The Middle East will be in pieces before it knows peace. New York City has roughly 6000 synchronized traffic lights. I'm still waiting for flying cars and holographic tv's Blush. Women's shoes, umm, NO THANK YOU! No comment. I take the fifth. Hear that, someone's at the door. Battery is dying. Hay, are those the four horsemen . . . .

It ain't considered universal if it ain't in the good ole U S of A
shake head

They SWORE to us when I was in early elementary school that the metric system was 'taking over'(as I mentioned...5 decades ago). They didn't ask what we 'wanted'. Of course, this was the same school system that had us working problems in 'base 2' /Binary system as though that would help folks understand computers.ZzZZz

'They' also promised a 'paperless society'...no checks needed, virtually no need for cash...this was in the '70s.shake head Of course, interest rates were 16-20%. so I'm glad they didn't hold on to everything!

That 'a carefully planned transition to the principal use of the metric system' sure is taking its own sweet time.Stick Out Tongue Two or three generations later, nobody asked ME if I'm ready to switch. You could probably fool some folks into thinking the price of gasoline went DOWN if you sold it by the liter !Stick Out Tongue Are these the same folks who keep minting pennies and dollar coins?(not to mention the two-dollar bill)

You wouldn't think synchronized lights existed if you drove in Atlanta for 30 years like I did! Maybe it's a "carefully planned transition' for the lights, also.laugh out loud

Guess they could sum it all up in one word:

Bazinga!

I drove though Atlanta once, I had to pry my fingers off the wheel afterward and drove around it on the way back. Lost a good friend that day, Tom Tom, whom, to this very day, still refuses to talk to me. To my dismay, he told all his friends and now I am mastering the art of map origami.
Shocking

I'm a big fan of Cold Steel for the money. Benchmade and SOG are great too, if you spend a bit more. I won't even mention the higher end stuff, given your budget. Good luck!
Cold Steel is my favorite knife company I own many of their knives.

Anyone have any suggestions for a Colorado legal carry knife? It needs to be a max of 3.5" and I just don't have any that small.

I am looking for a folding knife for my husband's birthday, this knife will be carried everyday and used for everything and I want to spend $60.00 or less if possible but I would like it to last for awhile. Any recommendations? Thanks
My husband also carries a Leek as his day-to-day knife. It's lightweight and slim and doesn't take up too much room in his pocket. My brother also carries one most of the time... http://amzn.com/B0009VC9Y0
