The Kershaw Plain Cryo Assisted 2.75 Inch Blackwash Folding Knife has great looks with that already broken in look. This Kershaw Rick Hinderer design is built of pure stainless steel that lets the design shine through bright and clear. Like all Rick's knives, the Cryo benefits from Rick's real world experience as a fire fighter and EMT.
This knife is designed to be a sturdy knife that is 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 SpeedSafe assisted opening, accessible with either the built-in flipper or the thumbstud. The deep-carry clip makes it a discreet pocket companion, too. Slightly smaller than some Hinderer pocket knives, the Cryo with is a superb knife for every day carry. You get the tactical, hard use looks you are looking for, a Hinderer design, and SpeedSafe opening in this amazingly affordable Kershaw that's destined to be a favorite.
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.
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.
SpeedSafe - Assists you to open any SpeedSafe knife quickly and easily with a manual push on the thumbstud or pull back on the flipper.
4-Position - The user may position the pocket clip for tip-up or tip-down, left or right handed carrying.
