If you’ve been craving a Rick Hinderer knife, but couldn’t quite part
with the bucks, your last excuse has just disappeared. The Cryo is the
result of collaboration between Rick Hinderer and the design and
production engineers at Kershaw. And we’re sure it will satisfy both
your Hinderer craving and the demands of your wallet.
A classic Rick Hinderer design, the Cryo 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 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. The Cryo also features Kershaw’s SpeedSafe
assisted opening for fast and easy one-handed opening. Access it with
either the built-in flipper or the thumbstud.
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
