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 us.

Great EDC

This is my favorite folder. Bought to replace a lost version of the same knife in black. Two different fast-open options (thumb stud and "lever"). Knife has a nice balance of length, straight edge to serrated. This is my EDC and I work in the IT field. It works well for opening boxes, cutting zip ties, and hacking through tough plastic packages.

A little on the heavy side, but it comes very sharp and holds an edge well. I use a stone to touch it up when needed.

Kershaw Cryo Knife

Love this little knife.
The finish is a dark matte gray with black hardware. This makes the knife anonymous and unassuming which can be handy. The blade is a non serrated modified drop point with a beautiful profile. The Cryo is all business without being intimidating or threatening.
The blade is about 2 3/4" long and the handle is about 3 3/4". Overall length is just under 6 1/2" which is a perfect EDC length for me. Gets the job done without making me feel like a zombie slayer.
The knife uses a framelock to lock the blade and man, it is a tight lock up with about 40% of the blade thickness hitting the lock bar. Absolutely no blade play at all in any direction.
The detent is quite strong and will not allow the blade to come loose when closed in your pocket.
The lockbar has a stabilizer just like its XM-18 bigger brother to keep the lock bar from traveling out too far.
The blade is Chinese 8Cr13MOV steel which I've found to be quite serviceable and also easy to sharpen. Quite sharp out of the box.
The Cryo is drilled and tapped to allow the low rider pocket clip to be fastened to the knife in all four possible positions. Lefties rejoice. Weight is a little on the heavy side at just over 4 Ounces, but isn't uncomfortable. It has the heft of a quality tool.
The knife handle is steel with no added scales. This keeps the knife very thin and it pretty much disappears in the pocket. Ergonomics are very comfortable. The flipper works as a finger choil when open. Jimping is present on the blade and handle and although not very aggressive, it does do a decent job of providing a bit more grip.
The Cryo is designed beautifully. Check out the Kershaw Cryo, a very sexy EDC knife that keeps it's good looks while also being able to take care of business. Moz def my current favorite for everyday carry and I suspect it will remain so for some time to come.Best $30 I've spent in a while.
