The Kershaw Cryo is quite the treat for those looking to get an inexpensive Rick Hinderer designed knife with a high-quality Kershaw build. The Cryo was awarded the "Best Buy of the Year" at 2012 Blade Show and it gets 2 thumbs up from us at Blade HQ.

The Cryo is a framelock knife with a Hinderer lockbar stabilizer. The assisted opening blade is deployed with a push of the ambidextrous thumb stud or flipper. The pocket clip is four-way reversible for multiple carry options, so the Cryo goes where you go!

Customer Reviews

A little small for lager hands.
Donald M. on Jan 8, 2018

Nice little blade for the money. If you have lager hands I would recommend the cryo 2 over this model. Good knife over all.

What a deal
Mike P. on Dec 13, 2015

Found these blades on Christmas sale. Found a quick review on line from TNF. Bought 4 of them for gifts. Upon receiving the blades I played with it. The build quality was awesome! Lock up was solid, blade was centered, g-10 handles has the right amount of texture, deep carry clip is sweet. A whole lotta knife for $25 bucks. Made in China is the only negative!

Great Knife
Armando R. on Nov 25, 2017

This was my first folding knife and I have not been disappointed. I carry it on me every day and has seen a ton of use.Only reason I give it four stars is because every so often I have to tighten the pivot screw to center the blade. Also, the thumb studs are pretty much useless. Their placing along with the strength of the detent makes the flipper the only option for deployment. Otherwise it has worked just fine with no blade play and solid build.

Great EDC
Tae S. on Jan 7, 2018

Great little EDC. Small, compact, and reliable deployment/lockup. Haven't had any issues or fails with it as of yet! Have had this knife along with the other aluminum body version for about a year now! Have only had to touch the blades up a few times.

Great small knife
Ross F. on Jan 19, 2018

It's light, deploys lightning quick and takes a decent edge. My wife carries this one in her purse and really likes it.

Good Knife with faults
daniel h. on Apr 20, 2015

Only a week after mine arrived in the mail, the assist gave out. The knife still works fine and I love it still. After I send it in for repair it will be again a good knife. G10 is pretty good and the 8cr13MoV keeps a fine edge. Lock up is solid. Good for edc

Good Starter EDC
Grady W. on Jan 5, 2018

My cryo was my first “nice” knife. Upon becoming a fiend though, I now have more insight! All around this is a great deal. The steel is meh, the ergos are good, features are great, blade design is sweet, centering gets thrown off pretty easily, that thin deep carry clip is great other than the side to side play they’re prone to, and it’s a hinderer designed knife- nuff said!

almost good.
Bryan H. on Sep 26, 2019

For the price, great knife but not without some issues. I love the size and the feel in hand. The steel is not great but expected at the price. The knife was not as sharp as expected out of the box. Disappointing clip that was way too tight and the screws that hold it in place get in the way of "deep carry"... poor design in this area. The frame lock is great but the knife is a little heavy for its size.
