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.

Pros: Blade Material, Overall Quality, Ease of Opening, Lock Ease of Use, Lock Type, Pocket Clip, None
Cons: Handle Feel
Kershaw's Best knife
Really more than its price. One of Kershaw's best. The only reason I didn't give it the fifth star was the handle material, which of course might someone likes it.

Cons: Weight, Lock Ease of Use
Nice knife, little heavy
I will be using this knife for weekend EDC due to the hefty weight. It is not extremely heavy, but you know it is in your pocket. Nice quick opening, the locking mechanism is difficult to use, but with more use hopefully it becomes a little easier to unlock. But, other than that, nice knife and work horse for those needed heavy jobs.

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.
