The Kershaw Cryo, designed by Rick Hinderer offers the extra grip of the G10. The G10 scale also lightens the overall weight of this knife. Like all Cryos, the G10-handled Cryo is equipped with SpeedSafe assisted opening for smooth and easy one-handed opening. Access it with the built-in flipper or thumb stud. The blade steel is heat treated to Kershaw's exacting standards. The handle has a G10 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 doesn't over-extend. The new Cryo G10 is equipped with a four-position deep-carry pocket clip for maximum carry flexibility and discretion.
