You have been hiking for hours and you are "positive" you are walking in the right direction. You turn left. You turn right. You're lost. Now what? If you have the right tool you can set up for the night and wait for rescue. If you don't have the right tool you are in for a long lonely night. With Kershaw Kinves and Tools you will have the best opportunity to make it out of your ordeal safely and securely. Kershaw Knives and Tools are sought after outdoorsmen, hunters, LEO, military, and everyone in between that appreciates excellent tools and blades. Next time you are heading out to the urban jungle, or your favorite isolated hiking trail take Kershaw with you. "Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it".
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 with a partially serrated blade, perfect for handling a wide range of tasks. It can take care of 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, 14C28N 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.
