The G-10 Cryo, a Rick Hinderer design, is a stainless steel stonewashed blade and black G-10 handle. The handle aids with grip on the knife but also helps to lighten it up. It features SpeedSafe assisted opening for easy one-handed opening with the thumb-stud or flipper. The Cryo was the result of collaboration between Rick Hinderer and the design and production engineers at Kershaw. It?s designed to satisfy users? craving for a Hinderer knife, but at a price that meets the demands of their wallets. The blade steel is heat treated to Kershaw?s exacting standards. The handle has a G-10 front scale with a stainless steel back. A sturdy frame lock secures the blade open during use and a Hinderer lockbar stabilizer ensures the lock doesn?t over-extend. For ease of carry, it offers deep-pocket quad-carry which simply means the clip is reversible for both left and right carry as wells as tip-up and tip-down carry.
