I notice that Kenshi is described as "open world" and the term "sandbox" appears as well. From that point of view how does it compare to "Skyrim"? Also, how does gameplay in general compare to "Skyrim"?

The only parallel between Kenshi and Skyrim is that they both permit exploration beyond a main progression path. In fact, there really is not main story to Kenshi at all.
From there, no real similarity exists. Kenshi you control a squad of people ranging from 1 to 50 characters and you literally get made fun of by the royalty in the game if you go looking for 'quests'. The game world is much more brutal. You can not kill anything starting out. Nothing. You can get lucky and catch someone who is unconscious and steal there stuff.
