Tax kills it for me unfortunately, can get it elsewhere for less without tax. Less of a wait too which is nice. Looks like a great knife though, think I am going to pick one up.

Knife uses screws, not rivets. Full disassembly is possible, and I imagine that a good polish on the brass pivot bushings would improve action even beyond factory. Action was a little tight from the factory, but a 1/16th of a turn on that screw seems to have smoothed it out quite a bit, with no play.
The Blur is a fine knife, and if of a good blade steel, I don't see why you would NEED to upgrade if you really like the blur. I prefer the edge profile on the Native. Thats just me. I had a blur at one point, and liked it, but lost it somewhere. ZT knives, IMO, are pumping their price a bit on name. Same with every other manufacturer, but they just don't feel like they deserve to command the price that they do. Just my opinion on it. Nice knives though if you can find a deal.
Bsmith, all the crap talk on this thread is exactly why I said what I did. Your statement is COMPLETELY fair and needs to be known, but it has absolutely nothing to do with this knife or drop specifically.

ok..I'm needing some help here. I've been stuck on the Kershaw blur to give you an idea of what I look for in a knife. I don't currently own any spyderco but I've been strongly considering it. Currently its between a Brous brothers Bionic, this knife and a 150 range ZT. Please help something other than opinions would be great even suggestions 150-200 range thanks everyone.

I used to use tuff glide for both coating the blade and lubing the pivot/locks, but this days I use nano oil for the latter. I still coat all my blades with tuff glide though. Both are excellent products.

Oh and 10 weight is the de facto choice for knives and guns, but I've also used 5w without issues. Get the three pack if it's still available.

I'm sorry, if a knife is delivered with faults like blade play, then it should have the capability to be returned, these aren't $20 mall bought knives. There shouldn't be a problem returning a knife with that kind of problem. Also I've never heard of a problem with Brous blades, he's a well known knife maker who has always made quality knives. Are we talking a collaboration knife or one of his actual knives?

I did a little reading on S35VN and ran across a few discussions from 2011-12 about how the steel blunted and flattened easily in a rope cutting test. This was when S35VN was relatively new. So there was some controversy about the steel, and speculation that companies weren't heat treating the steel to a high enough hardness.
Some folks speculated that in time, knife makers would hammer out the problems,dial in the heat treat, and make S35VN work.
That was three years ago. Does anyone know if these concerns have been put to bed?
To be fair, I read that the Native 5 tested well, even back then.

You're probably referring to the testing done by youtuber jdavis882 back in 2011 (a retest of the original test he did). According to Zknives, CPM S35VN was developed in 2009 as an evolution of CPM S30V.
As a general practice, Spyderco (for some reason or other) does not publish Rockwell Hardness (HRC) results for their knives. Still, I own several Spyderco models (Manix 2 XL-S30V, Endura, Delica-both VG-10) and their heat treatment is really good and pretty consistent.
In S35VN steel I own a Zero Tolerance 0550, a Reate Horizon B and a Kizer (model is a number), and in all of them the steel has performed great. In practice, it holds an edge just as well or just a bit worse than S30V, but not by much. The good thing about S35VN though, is that it is somewhat easier to sharpen than S30V.
So, if you are concerned about edge retention, Spyderco does know how to heat-treat their blades. Buy with confidence... : )
