Black finished tip-down pocket clip for everyday carry.

My first decent knife
Donald M.
I have had my whirlwind for about 7 years now. This thing has been though hell and back and is still kicking! Feels great in the hand and the speedsafe is still as quick as when I first bought it. My only complaint is I wish you would be tip up carry. Other then that solid knife for the money and USA MADE!

This is superior quality knife it very happy with it and the spring assist blade makes it very convenient if you have multiple sclerosis, when you need to open it when doing tasks. the Only disappointment with it is when you close it and it rattles inside it has never been dropped or abused in anyway. But there is no owners Manuel's to disassemble to figure out what is rattling inside. You can send it back to them and they will fix it. But due my very limited finances due to Multiple Sclerosis, I can't afford the shipping costs.
