KS1556: 1556 Cryo II 3-1/4" Bead Blasted 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 bead blasted 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.

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.

alright...but it's no ZT
Was looking for something to 31st my appetite for a ZT without spending what they want. So I got the cryo. It felt on but a little on the cheap side. Felt almost hollow, not sturdy. Pocket clip was kinda thin. After holding it for a week decided to return it. Guess I'll just save some more and just get the ZT.
