KS1556BLK: 1556BLK Cryo II 3-1/4" Black Plain Blade, Rick Hinderer Design, Frame Lock
Wish granted. The Kershaw Cryo II is significantly larger than the original Cryo. With its 3-1/4" blade, this classic Rick Hinderer design was built for those who just demand more from a pocketknife. More size. More features. More streamline style.

The Cyro II is pure stainless steel with a black DLC finish. The Cryo II is a good looking tactical and EDC knife that operates smoothly as well. Speaking of smooth, the SpeedSafe assisted opening guarantees the Cryo II opens quickly and easily, too. Though this is a larger knife, it's remarkably slim and rides comfortably deep in the pocket thanks to Kershaw's deep-carry clip.

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.

Fantastic knife
I have been collecting lockback knives since I bought my first Buck 110 in 1975. I carry a small lockback daily but on weekends I carry a larger and stronger knife while working in my yard and shop. This knife is the best knife I have ever carried for work. The fit and finish are impeccable. The quick open mechanism is a delight. I don't use the pocket clip which makes it an easier carry in my pocket. I will buy another one if this one ever wears out. Heck, I will probably buy another one just to have a spare.

Budget priced awesome!
I purchased the original Cryo for my old man for xmas last year and we were both really impressed by it. I liked it so much I decided to get the Cryo II for myself. When I saw that knife center had it in black I has to have it. I purchased this as my new edc and I have to say I'm impressed. For the price point the steel is great, it holds its edge better than most of your average wally world knives. The lockup is solid and the finish is beautiful. Add speedsafe assisted open and you have a high value, low cost knife that performs well.
