The popular Kershaw Cryo knife now comes with our great-looking BlackWash finish for that already-broken-in look. This Kershaw-Rick Hinderer design is built of pure stainless steel that lets the design shine through. 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. The black-oxide BlackWash coating gives it that well-worn look, while it enhances corrosion resistance.
For secure blade lock up, the Kershaw Cryo offers a tough frame lock with lockbar stabilization. For fast and easy one-handed opening, it also features Kershaw's SpeedSafe assisted opening, accessible with either the built-in flipper or the thumbstud. Our deep-carry clip makes it a discreet pocket companion, too. Slightly smaller than some Hinderer pocketknives, the Cryo with BlackWash is a superb knife for every day 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. The "flipper" is a protrusion on the back of the blade that the user can pull back on, or flip, in order to move the blade easily out of the handle. Frame Lock- A portion of the handle (the knife frame) moves behind the blade to lock it into position during use. This is a safety feature of the knife. The user may position the pocketclip for tip-up or tip-down, left- or right-handed carry.
