The Cryo is the result of collaboration between Rick Hinderer and the design and production engineers at Kershaw. A classic Rick Hinderer design, the Cryo is built of pure stainless steel coated with matte grey titanium carbo-nitride for a no-fuss look that lets the design shine through. Like all Ricks knives, the Cryo benefits from Ricks real world experience as a fire fighter and EMT. Its designed to be a sturdy knife thats still aesthetically pleasing and feels good in the hand. For secure blade lock up, the Cryo offers a tough frame lock with lockbar stabilization. The Cryo also features Kershaws SpeedSafe assisted opening for fast and easy one-handed opening. Access it with either the built-in flipper or the thumbstud. Slightly smaller than some Hinderer pocketknives, the Cryo is a superb knife for every day carry. EDC this guy for a while and youll soon appreciate its virtues. You get the tactical, hard-use looks youre looking for, a Hinderer design, and SpeedSafe opening in this amazingly affordable Kershaw thats destined to be the Hinderer for the rest of us.
