Kershaw Cryo Assisted Opening 2.75 Inch Folding Knife was designed by Rick Hinderer. It is one of Kershaw's best selling knives, and now it is available with one of customers' most asked for modifications, a G-10 front scale. This Cryo not only looks good, it also offers the extra grip some of you have been asking for. The G-10 scale also lightens the overall weight of this very practical knife. The Cryo was the result of collaboration between Rick Hinderer and the design and production engineers at Kershaw. It's designed to satisfy users' craving for a Hinderer knife, but at a price that meets the demands of their wallets.
The original Cryo was selected as a Blade Show Best Buy and as Men's Journal Approved Gear. Like all Cryos, the G-10-handled Cryo is equipped with SpeedSafe assisted opening for smooth and easy one handed opening. Access it with the built-in flipper or thumbstud. The blade steel is heat treated to Kershaw's exacting standards. The handle has a G-10 front scale with a stainless steel back. A sturdy frame lock secures the blade open during use and a Hinderer lockbar stabilizer ensures the lock does not over-extend. The Cryo G-10 is equipped with a four position deep carry pocket clip for maximum carry flexibility and discretion.

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.
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 pocket clip for tip-up or tip-down, left- or right-handed carry.
