The new Kershaw Cryo II is 20% larger than the original award-winning Cryo, designed by Rick Hinderer. With its bigger 3 1/4-in. SpeedSafe-equipped blade, this classic design was built for those who just demand more from their pocketknife. A classic Rick Hinderer design, the Cryo II is built of pure stainless steel coated with matte-grey titanium carbo-nitride for a no-fuss look that lets the design shine through. Like all Ricks knives, the Cryo II benefits from Ricks real world experience as a fire fighter and EMT. Its designed to be a sturdy knife thats still aesthetically pleasing and feels good in the hand. For secure blade lock up, the Cryo II offers a tough frame lock with lockbar stabilization. The Cryo also comes with Kershaws SpeedSafe assisted opening for fast and easy one-handed opening. Access it with either the built-in flipper or the thumbstud. Though its a larger knife, the Cryo II is remarkably slim and rides comfortably deep in the pocket thanks to our deep-carry clip. EDC this guy for a while and we think youll soon appreciate its virtues. You get the tactical, hard-use looks youre looking for, a Hinderer design, and SpeedSafe opening in this amazingly affordable Kershaw thats destined to be the Hinderer for the rest of us.
