Kershaw Knives
 
2012 BEST BUY OF THE YEAR—BLADE MAGAZINE

If you've been craving a Rick Hinderer knife, but couldn’t quite part with the bucks, your last excuse has just disappeared. The Cryo is the result of collaboration between Rick Hinderer and the design and production engineers at Kershaw. And we’re sure it will satisfy both your Hinderer craving and the demands of your wallet.

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 Rick’s knives, the Cryo benefits from Rick’s real world experience as a fire fighter and EMT. It’s designed to be a sturdy knife that’s 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 Kershaw’s 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 we think you’ll soon appreciate its virtues. You get the tactical, hard-use looks you’re looking for, a Hinderer design, and SpeedSafe opening in this amazingly affordable Kershaw that’s destined to be the Hinderer for the rest of us.
Features
  • Flipper- May be used on either manual or assisted opening knives. The "flipper" is a protrusion on the back of the blade that the user can pull back on, or flip, in order to move the blade easily out of the handle.
  • SpeedSafe® - Assists you to open any SpeedSafe® knife quickly and easily with a manual push on the thumbstud or pull back on the flipper; built into many Kershaw best sellers.
  • Frame Lock - A portion of the handle (the knife frame) moves behind the blade to lock it into position during use. This is a safety feature of the knife.
  • Quad-carry- The user may position the pocketclip for tip-up or tip-down, left- or right-handed carry.

Frame Lock
Frame Lock
Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.
Pocket Clip
Pocket Clip
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
Steel Handles
Steel Handles
Stainless Steel knife handles provide strength and durability while using chromium oxide to create a rust-resistant barrier.
8CR13 Stainless Steel
8CR13 Stainless Steel
Considered a value steel, 8Cr13 steel provides adequate corrosion resistance but with slightly more carbon than AUS-8, it will sharpen up and hold an edge better.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality, Handle Material, Lock Ease of Use, Lock Type, Weight, Sheath, Handle Feel, Blade Material
Cons: Pocket Clip, None
Nice sturdy knife. Drab, poor pocket clip
Quality knife, well made, good metal, slim, bad pocket clip, not at all visually appealing (it is 95% grey). See more below. As, sharp, good quality metal, won't rust, will keep an edge. But I have respect for my property and I might be a little superficial by pursuing this and being this upset by how dull this knife is but seriously - it is nothing but grey! Handle and blade. I lik a knife, I really like it. If I had no care in the world as to what my knives looked like, it would be my favorite knife. It is the best quality knife I own (I don't own many so I can't say that with great authority) But I do care what it looks like because I respect myself and I respect my property. It is all grey, nearly monochromatic, save the screws and the finger knob which are black. BORING. People complained about the weight. It is titanium; titanium isn't exactly feather-light. Everyone complained about the pocket clip. Most just complained. I can elaborate a little: for those who didn't break (I saw a lot who did), it is incredibly stiff and tight. I might need pliers to make the point of loosening it but I would be a little nervous about that because of how many broke. I couldn't move it when I opened it so I used a heavy-duty key ring and shoved it under the clip then pulled really really hard. When it wouldn't move any more, I pulled it out. As for the rest of it - it's bare bones, skeletal. It is very very sturdy but it is also a very boring knife. It's a good knifee that it's so slim. But it needs some flare...

SOLID
Cost - Quality: excellent. Great blade sharpness. You can open it only with the assisted opening. The frame lock is not so easy to use it.
