Kershaw Knives

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.
  • 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.

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

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.

Good Knife, Takes A Good Edge, But Could Hold It Longer
I use this knife as an EDC, and don't put it through very heavy use for the most part. I bought it on a great sale, and really enjoy the knife. The Speed Safe mechanism works great, and I haven't had any problems with it so far. I'm not a fan of liner locks, so I hesitated for quite a while and looked at a variety of other knives before finally buying this one, figuring that I could return it if I really didn't like it. I ended up really appreciating it. I like it a lot better than a liner-lock, but I think I still prefer the classic style lock-back. So far, I have been able to, with a little time and some Arkansas Stone, consistently sharpen this knife to just about a razor's edge. It'll shave, but it takes a bit of work to get it to that point. Maybe I'm just not touching it up often enough, though it usually doesn't need it (I've only sharpened it a few times in the two months or so that I've had it). One of the few knocks against this knife is that it could hold its edge just a little bit better. Don't get me wrong, it holds an edge quite well, but it loses the razor edge quicker than I'd prefer. It stays at just below a razor (right about where you can still shave with it, but it just barely pulls on the hairs) for quite a respectable amount of time though, but like I said earlier, I'm not generally using it all that hard. Despite that, it is a great knife, and I would definitely buy it again if it was on a good sale. It seems really well constructed, holds a very good edge for the price I was able to get it at (which, for the record, was just a little over $25 if I remember correctly), and carries great in my back pocket. Overall, I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a good EDC knife (matter of fact, I did recommend it to a friend, and he ended up getting one for Christmas and he couldn't be happier).

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.
