The Kershaw Cryo 1555BW, a Rick Hinderer design, is a stainless steel design with a black-oxide BlackWash coating. With the SpeedSafe assisted opening, you get an easy one-handed opening using either the flipper or thumb stud. For ease of carrying, it has a deep-carry pocket clip. Like all Rick’s knives, the Cryo benefits from Rick’s real-world experience as a firefighter and EMT. It’s designed to be a sturdy knife that’s still aesthetically pleasing and feels good in the hand. The BlackWash coating not only gives it that well-worn look, but it also enhances corrosion resistance. For secure blade lock up, the Cryo offers a tough frame lock with lock-bar stabilization. Slightly smaller than some Hinderer pocketknives, the Cryo with BlackWash is a superb knife for everyday carry. 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 an EDC favorite.
