Kershaw Knives

Get your hands on a Whirlwind and you won’t want to let go. This one will be your constant companion whether you’re on the jobsite, working in the garage, or doing chores around the house. The first thing you’ll notice is how this big handful of a knife nestles into your palm.

The ergonomic design and the tough, glass-filled nylon handle scales provide a grip that's comfortable, secure, and ensures that you’re always in control of the cut. Next, of course, you’ll want to try out the razor-sharp blade. Just push on the thumbstud and—twack!—the SpeedSafe assisted opening mechanism moves the blade out of the handle and it locks securely into place, ready for use.

The blade is a classic drop-point, perfect for handling a wide range of tasks—pretty much anything you care to throw at it. The blade steel is high-performance 14C28N. Developed in a partnership between Kershaw and Sandvik Steel, it offers excellent corrosion resistance, hardness, and edge retention. In fact, Sandvik considers this the highest-performance steel available that can still be fine-blanked. We would have to agree. But the only way you’re going to know for yourself is to get a Whirlwind of your own.

Pros: Lock Type, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material, None
Cons: Blade Sharpness, Weight, Handle Feel
Not my favorite
I bought this knife over8 years ago as a replacement i found it too heavy to carry around so it was regulated to my tool box. The assisted opening is quick and solid. The blade requires little mantenace but the payoff is it doesn't hold a great edge. I have several knives and i would say this is the least used. Simply because it does not keep a good edge iand t is too heavy to carry around in my pocket.

Cons: None
Great knife and a sad day when I lost it
This thing is awesome, I had a very early model with patent pending on it. The blade was my favorite and most easily cared for, took and held a shaving edge something fierce. Don't hesitate and get yourself one of these great knives!

Pros: Pocket Clip, Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Handle Material, Weight, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality
Cons: Lock Ease of Use, None
Excellent quality, very sharp
Pros: Blade is excellent quality steel that stays sharp and is corrosion resistant. Sure locking system guarantees the blade will not fold, wiggle or feel loose even after years of use. All edges on handle are smooth, no rough or unfinished edges. Cons: Locking lever takes bit of practice to work efficiently to fold the blade back into position. I have had this knife for a few years now and it is still sharp and functions like new.
