Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The Kershaw Cryo II is 20% larger than the original award-winning Cryo, designed by Rick Hinderer. With its bigger 3 1/4-inch Speed Safe-equipped blade, this classic design was built for those who just demand more from their pocketknife. A classic Rick Hinderer design, the Cryo II is built of pure stainless steel coated with matte-grey titanium carbo-nitride for a no-fuss look that lets the design shine through. Like all Ricks knives, the Cryo II benefits from Ricks real world experience as a fire fighter and EMT. Its designed to be a sturdy knife that's still aesthetically pleasing and feels good in the hand. For secure blade lock up, the Cryo II offers a tough frame lock with lock bar stabilization. The Cryo also comes with Kershaw's Speed Safe assisted opening for fast and easy one-handed opening. Access it with either the built-in flipper or the thumb stud. Though its a larger knife, the Cryo II is remarkably slim and rides comfortably deep in the pocket thanks to our deep-carry clip. EDC this guy for a while and we think you'll soon appreciate its virtues. Flipper: 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. Speed Safe: Assists you to open any Speed Safe knife quickly and easily. Frame Lock: The knife frame moves behind the blade to lock it into position during use. Quad-carry: The user may position the pocket clip for tip-up or tip-down, left- or right-handed carry.

Came razor sharp out of the box and has held an edge well.
Warriorzen
Deployment is snappy with assisted opening/flipper, lockup excellent with zero play up or down, side to side.
Greg de Mocskonyi
Great knife, I like the feel and the design style...the blade has a good size and is very sharp, well made.

Let me start by saying that I'm a huge fan of Rick Hinderer's XM18 design. Haven't talked myself into spending $600+ on one of the originals, but I do own a ZT0561 and multiple Kershaw Cryos in various finishes, all of which are based on the XM design. My quick synopsis of the pros and cons of the Kershaw Cryos follows:

Both models:

Pros:

8Cr13Mov Blade - Good quality Chinese Stainless Steel...similar to AUS-8
Easy to sharpen
Grey Titanium Nitride finish wears well and looks good.
Clip can be positioned four ways
Solid blade lockup
Clip allows knife to ride deep in pocket

Cons:
All metal construction = higher than average weight
8Cr13MoV does not hold edge as long as harder steels

Original Cryo

Pros:
Great EDC - easy to carry
2.75 inch blade is legal for concealed carry (Nevada)
Easy "flipper only" blade deployment.
Excellent fit and finish at a nice price, although QC on newer Cryos has slipped a bit. I know this because I often purchase Cryos to give as gifts.

Cons:
A little too small for defensive use
Sharp edges on blade spine gimping
Avoid model with black finish...it scratches easily.

Cryo 2

Pros:
Gimping is not as aggressive as original Cryo (This may be a negative, based on personal preference)
Blade/grip much more suitable for defensive use than original
Excellent fit and finish at a bargain price.

Cons:
Most rapid/consistent deployment requires use of both flipper and thumb stud.
Kind of heavy at almost six ounces (a custom carbon fiber scale would likely make the Cryo 2 a terrific EDC pick)
3.25 inch blade requires non-concealed carry (Nevada)
Pocket clip is too tight...usually needs to be adjusted.

Normally, I prefer to purchase USA made cutlery. However, recently I've purchased several of Kershaw's off shore offerings. I've owned a LOT of knives in my time. Even though I've never dropped major scratch on a high - high dollar piece, I have spent a few hundred on ZTs, and others in that $200 - $300 range. I also purchase EDCs that are in the $20 - $60 range simply because I don't fancy losing any of my higher cost 'special' carry knives. I purchased the original Cryo last year. To be honest, I carried it a few times then put it in away. Then I started EDCing a Kershaw Kuro. It was Okay, it was light and kinda fun. Something happened and I began to gravitate back to the heavier Cryo. I found that after some time I actually began to appreciate the sturdier feel of the Cryo. When I saw that Kershaw was releasing the Cryo ll I had to have one. When it arrived hair shaving sharp out of the box I must say I was more than pleased. So I'm not sure what kind of knives some of the nay sayers of the Cryo are used to getting for less than fourty bucks, if you ask me, this knife is an outstanding bargain at its price point. Is it a tad heavy? Yep... but if you can get past the fact that you can feel it when it's clipped in, you'll love it. I did not experience any of the release problems of an overly tight clip that others mentioned. It's secure... not a quick draw, but secure... I like that. If you are a knife guy or girl and you can't figure out how to customize the aggressiveness of the clip, um, well perhaps you should send yours back. This knife is a solid EDC in my opinion. Sharp, rugged and well worth the money. The only reason I didn't give it five stars?... It would have had to make me breakfast in order to deserve 5 stars.

The size is decent; it's probably a bit bulky for some people. I had to dock a star because the spring clip is INSANELY tight; my pants (5.11 tactical) have a slight bit of reinforcement for a knife clip, making it a bit too tough to clip the knife back in, and difficult to grab out of my pocket too. Of course, If I were hanging upside down (I don't do this very often!) I'd have no doubt that my knife would not fall out of pocket, so there's that too. But I'm afraid that I'm going to rip my fingernail off or something trying to just deploy the knife.

The quick flipper is a brilliant design and I'm completely sold on that. No issues on re-positioning the clip, either, other than my difficulty in finding just the right bit to do it with.

The 3.25” bladed Kershaw Cryo II frame lock, assisted opening (“Speedsafe”) folder is designed by Rick Hinderer and made in China. The knife comes set up for tip down right handed carry, but you can change it to any of the other three orientations. Kershaw also makes the Hinderer designed 2.75” Cryo 1555TI and 1555BLK. I own the 1555BLK Cryo along now with this Cryo II 1556TI. The shorter Cryo is a good, basic, everyday utility knife, and the Cryo II is an affordable, well-designed, self-defense knife. Currently, my heavy-duty self-defense knife is a Zero Tolerance 0200, designed by Ken Onion.

This Cryo II has a stainless steel frame and blade, both of Titanium Carbo-Nitride coated 8Cr13MoV. Although the blade length of the Cryo II is only .5” longer than the Cryo, the blade and frame is larger in width also. This is not just a longer Cryo blade on a longer frame. The grey Titanium Carbo-Nitride coating on the Cryo II has more friction against the hand than the black DLC coating on my Cryo, and it doesn’t show oily fingerprints like the DLC does.
