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 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. The blade steel is high-performance 14C28N. 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.
