Kershaw Whirlwind BlackWash Spring Assist Folder 1560BWST

The Kershaw Whirlwind is a work-ready spring assisted opening folder that has proven itself as a great EDC knife for about 15 years. Now Kershaw has come out with a new Blackwashed version of the beloved Ken Onion Whirlwind knife that you'll definitely want to add to your knife collection.

If your not familiar with the Whirlwind one of the first things you’ll notice is how the handle gives a great grip as it nestles in the palm of your hand. 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.

The Whirlwind comes with a razor-sharp blade that opens super fast in the blink of an eye with a push of the thumbstud and "bam!" the SpeedSafe assisted opening mechanism moves the blade out of the handle and it locks securely into place, ready for use. The drop point blade is made of high-performance 14C28N (this steel was developed in collaboration between kershaw and Sandvik Steel) and it is ideal for performing a variety of cutting tasks. Sandvik 14C28N offers excellent corrosion resistance, hardness, and edge retention. As a matter of fact, Sandvik considers 14C28N to be the highest-performance steel currently available that can still be fine-blanked. Once you get your hands on a Whirlwind you will not want to let go... Get yours today at www.osograndeknives.
