Kershaw Knives


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 gray 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 firefighter 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 thumb stud.

Slightly smaller than some Hinderer pocket knives, 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.


  • Flipper- May be used on either manual or assisted opening knives. 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.
  • SpeedSafe® - Assists you to open any SpeedSafe® knife quickly and easily with a manual push on the thumbstud or pull back on the flipper; built into many Kershaw best sellers.
  • 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.
  • Quad-carry- The user may position the pocketclip for tip-up or tip-down, left- or right-handed carry.

Pocket Clip
Pocket Clip Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
Steel Handles
Steel Handles Stainless Steel knife handles provide strength and durability and look and feel great.
8CR13 Stainless Steel
8CR13 Stainless Steel Considered a value steel, 8Cr13 steel provides adequate corrosion resistance but with slightly more carbon than AUS-8, it will sharpen up and hold an edge better.
Frame Lock
Frame Lock Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.

Cons: Overall Quality, None
Quality not as expected
I really liked the knife when I got it. It had a nice weight and was “beefy”. Unfortunately the torsion bar broke shortly after buying it. It still works but is not assisted. And no, I didn’t abuse it. It seems pretty common for this to happen.

Cons: Blade Material
Almost perfect
For work (autobody tech). Very good knife I like everything about it except the blade steel. I wish Kershaw would offer a model with a high end steel. I have a zero tolerance hinder knife with elmax steel but it’s too big for my baby hands

Best knife I've ever owned
I'm an aircraft mechanic and veteran, and approaching retirement age, and this has been my EDC for several years, and is absolutely the best knife I've ever carried. I bought a couple extra incase I ever lost or broke this first one, but I'm still carrying it. I sharpen it almost daily, but other than that the only change I've made is: I removed the thumb studs because it roughed up the edge of my jean pockets, and I like using only the flipper. "My best knife ever - for over fifty years"
