The BlackWash Cryo II, a Rick Hinderer design, has the black-oxide BlackWash coated stainless steel blade and handle. It features the SpeedSafe assisted opening which is easily accessed by the flipper or thumb-stud for quick one-handed opening. The BlackWash Cryo II is easy carried with the deep pocket quad-carry pocket clip. The popular Cryo II gets a BlackWash finish. BlackWash gives a knife that already-broken-in look?like your favorite pair of well-worn jeans. But that’s not all. It also provides an extra measure of protection for the metal and helps hide any additional scratches you may put on the knife during normal use. The blade steel is heat treated to Kershaw?s exacting standards. The handle is stainless steel with a sturdy frame lock to securely lock the blade open during use. A Hinderer lock-bar stabilizer ensures the lock doesn?t over-extend.
