KS1556TI: 1556Ti Cryo II 3-1/4" 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 matte gray titanium carbo-nitride (TiCN) coating. Three times as hard as chrome, TiCN offers excellent abrasion resistance and reduces friction on moving parts. Which means the Cryo II not only looks great but 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

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.

My Absolute go-to EDC
This is my overall favorite EDC. I own several Kershaw Speedsafe knives, and in my humble opinion, the Cryo II is the pre-eminent example of the brand. Opening is downright fun, the blade deploying with a satisfying, positive click. The frame lock is completely solid, but the design provides simple one hand closing. The lack of scales might deter some buyers, but the design is beautifully industrial/mechanical aesthetic, while the frame is super smooth with rounded edges providing a comfortable grip.
