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 gray 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

Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
Steel Handles
Steel Handles
Stainless Steel knife handles provide strength and durability and look and feel great.
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.

Great Little Knife!
I love this thing, never leave the house without it. It is by far one of the best knives for the money. I wish they made a larger version and with a better steel, but that is not why I only rated a 4 star. The clip is weak. I have snagged it three different times, each time bending it away. I have had to remove it every time to bend it back so it holds snug again. I've also read of other people snagging the clip as well. Maybe it's not a strong enough steel, or maybe it's because the design has it sticking out so far. Either way, I've had cheaper knives with a better clip. On the plus side, the steel is adequate for a cheap EDC knife. It is very solid (right up there with my 2 Spyderco's) locks tight, opens easy, and looks great with the finish. I've had it for 7 months and plan to keep it for a long time. If you're thinking about buying it, just do it. You'll thank me later.

Cons: None
Great Knife
I did a little research before purchasing this knife, and given my needs and wants, I thought this knife would be a good fit. I'm using it for small tasks around the house, and am only putting a low amount of wear on it, but the knife is holding up perfectly. The weight of the knife is nice - light, but solid in your hand. The grip is comfortable and the open-assist is a nice plus.

Nice knife
Overall very nice knife. I don`t leave home without it. Holds a good edge and i like the easy opening design. Only problem i have had which was my fault. I was getting out of a truck the other day and caught the pocket clip on the seatbelt and snapped the clip off. Currently trying to find a replacement clip.
