The Whirlwind by Kershaw Knives and Ken Onion, is one of the original members of the Ken Onion family, and is still one of the most popular with Kershaw. The Whirlwind 1560st is composed of a Sandvik 14C28N stainless steel and a black injection-molded polyimide handle. The Sandvik 14C28B stainless steel used for the blade of the Kershaw Whirlwind is also coated with Tungsten DLC to provide a scratch-resistant surface that is also non-reflective and extends the sleek look of the blade. The serrated blade of the Kershaw 1560st allows for an extended cutting surface with increased control when sawing materials. The polyimide handle offers texturized, ergonomic design that is molded to fit in comfortably into the hand of the user without adding weight to the knife, which would hinder the multiple uses of the Whirlwind. Like many other Kershaw Knives, the Whirlwind 1560st features the SpeedSafe assisted opening system, as well as a locking liner, to ensure the safe, smooth use of the knife. The SpeedSafe assisted opening system allows for easy, one-handed deployment of the blade, while the locking liner locks the blade of the Kershaw 1560st securely in place while the blade is open and in use. The Kershaw Whirlwind, while it is one of the original members of the Ken Onion family, is still one of the most versatile and popular among Kershaw customers for its ease of use and sleek design.
