Kershaw Knives Whiplash Hawk Designed Fixed Blade
Kershaw Knives has another hit. Grant and Gavin Hawk come up with really cool design ideas! Their latest clever idea appears on the very affordable Whiplash fixed blade from Kershaw. The clever idea is to put a channel around the handle scales to securely store a wrist lanyard. Safely out of the way when not needed, there at the ready when it is needed.
The info from Kershaw follows:
The Kershaw Whiplash has the kind of dramatic looks that are sure to turn a few heads. But, believe us, this is the kind of Whiplash you want. This bold, military-style fixed-blade knife has a built-in parachute cord lanyard. Pull the tab at the butt of the knife to release the elasticized lanyard, wrap it around your wrist, and you’re good to go. For an even more secure grip, the Whiplash features extra-large thumb notches and an oversized index-finger notch. For hardness and strength, the blade is 8CR14 stainless steel with matte-black PVD coating. Includes sheath for easy carry and storage.
