    Question Educate me on Kershaw knives...

    OK, so I've been looking for a new knife and was browsing the local walmart for a deal on some clearance .233 when I saw the knife case...I just moved to NY and didn't realize that assisted openers were legal here until I did some research...anyway, I took a look at the Kershaw Blur and really liked it. Here are some questions for anyone that has one of these knives.

    The blade - I noticed that the Blur and Leek are made of 440A while the Black Cyclone is made of Sandvik 13C26...any opinions on these? I've never been a big fan of 440 but I've heard many good things about Kershaw...inform me, give me a link, something?

    The Speed Safe - I'm very impressed with how easily it opens up...but I'm also a bit concerned for the legal aspects of this...is there anyway that these can be opened by "flicking your wrist" and putting no pressure on the blade? I hope not because that would make it a gravity knife under NYS law...not really looking for something like that.

    Thanks very much for any/all information you can give me and if you can point me in the right direction!

    No problems with the steel in my Blur. You must put some pressure on the blade to get it to open. It is torsioned shut till you reach a certian point.
