The Cryo, a classic Rick Hinderer design, features a grey titanium carbo-nitride coating for both the handle and the blade. Like the other Cryo knives, it has SpeedSafe assisted opening with the thumb-stud or flipper with one-handed opening. For ease of carry, it has the deep-carry pocket clip. 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. 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.
