Jedi Knife, The new Kershaw/Ken Onion whirlwind, blackout and blizzard knives will make there grand debut at the blade show in Atlanta and they are taking orders now. It is my understanding that they will be shipping on june 1.They have already built a bunch of them but the hold up has been the belt clips as they havn't recieved them yet.
I've been beating the crap out of the samples that they sent me and let me tell ya they are tough I ran them over with my truck, and then punched the gas and spun out on top of them ( put a nice dent in my fence)I scratched it up pretty good but it still operated smooth as silk.I body slammed them on the concrete floor of my shop about twenty times no problem then I went out side to my knife throwing board in the yard and threw it into that about 10-15 times still no problem then I tested the lock it was still solid I locked the blade in my vice with a 2x4 cushion for the cutting edge which was beat up pretty bad by now and yanked the handle pretty hard several times and it held This suprised me . I don't recomend any one doing this to there knife cause it looked like it went through hell and it did,I just did it to see how much it could take and to test the plastic/ kevlar/nylon handle to see if I could break it.For an inexpensive $79.00 suggested retail(Whirlwind)$89.00suggested retail(Blackout)with Speed Safe,it is a great everyday work knife. By the way the Speed Safe opening mechanism is very strong in these knives and the lockup is very secure Now everyone can afford a Speed Safe.
Im sure all of the larger distributers have info on them. Kershaw will probably send you a catalogue if you call and ask them.If you can hold on for about another week or two your favorite dealer will have them in stock. if you have any questions I can help with feel free to ask I pull no punches, I'll tell you all I know and won't B/S you.
