I have a Shaw D whistle. The bottom three holes are twisted to the right so they are not in line with the top three holes. Has anyone else seen this on a Shaw whistle? It is not so bad that the whistle is unplayable, but it is visually noticable.

The ones shown on the Hobgoblin site are all in-line, even the low D. They're esssentially 1-piece length conical whistles, so I can't see any reason for any of the holes to be offset.
