5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Wicking !, February 17, 2015

I'm using this as wicking material for vaping. Works great. A bit off-white because it is organic/unbleached. The rectangular layered format makes it easy to cut and shape.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sexy EDC, July 26, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Kershaw Cryo Knife (Sports)
Love this little knife.
The finish is a dark matte gray with black hardware. This makes the knife anonymous and unassuming which can be handy when using a knife around people that freak when shiny blades are exposed in public.Fit and finish is superb and the titanium coating on the handle and blade seem quite rugged. The blade is a non serrated modified drop point with a beautiful profile.
I always think of a knife as a tool first, but many folks think "weapon" first which can put a damper on being comfortable about use and deployment in public. The Cryo (IMHO) is all business without being intimidating or threatening.
The blade is about 2 3/4" long and the handle is about 3 3/4". Overall length is just under 6 1/2" which is a perfect EDC length for me. Gets the job done without making me feel like a zombie slayer.
The knife uses a framelock to lock the blade and man, it is a tight lock up with about 40% of the blade thickness hitting the lock bar. Absolutely no blade play at all in any direction.
The detent is quite strong and will not allow the blade to come loose when closed in your pocket.
The lockbar has a stabilizer just like its XM-18 bigger brother to keep the lock bar from traveling out too far.
The Kershaw "Speed Assist" makes the blade fly out with very little effort. The thumbstuds are not that comfortable to use but this knife was designed to open with the flipper so . . . get over it.
The blade is Chinese 8Cr13MOV steel which I've found to be quite serviceable and also easy to sharpen. Quite sharp out of the box.
The Cryo is drilled and tapped to allow the low rider pocket clip to be fastened to the knife in all four possible positions. Lefties rejoice. Weight is a little on the heavy side at just over 4 Ounces, but isn't uncomfortable. It has the heft of a quality tool.
The knife handle is steel with no added scales. This keeps the knife very thin and it pretty much disappears in the pocket. Ergonomics are very comfortable. The flipper works as a finger choil when open. Jimping is present on the blade and handle and although not very aggressive, it does do a decent job of providing a bit more grip.
The lanyard hole has a tube which runs from side to side. The outside of the tube is shaped to look identical to the handle stand offs. Very cool. Finally, the Cryo is designed beautifully. It looks just like a miniature Hinderer XM-18. If you've been wanting a Hinderer but can't afford the price tag or feel uneasy about using a 8 1/2" long $400 knife for EDC. Check out the Kershaw Cryo, a very sexy EDC knife that keeps it's good looks while also being able to take care of business. Moz def my current favorite for everyday carry and I suspect it will remain so for some time to come.Best $30 I've spent in a while.
