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 not only gives it that well-worn look, it also enhances corrosion resistance. For secure blade lock up, the 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.
