Commitment to Innovation
Kershaw was founded in 1974 to design and manufacture tools that knife users would be proud to own, carry, and use. This has meant that every Kershaw knife must be of the highest quality. Whether it’s a hardworking pocketknife, a hunting knife, or a special collectors’ edition, Kershaw always chooses appropriate, high-quality materials and is dedicated to intensive craftsmanship. Along with extremely tight tolerances and state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques, this ensures that Kershaw knives provide a lifetime of performance.
SpeedSafe Assisted Opening
Assists you to open the Cryo quickly and easily. To open, just push outward on the thumb stud or pull back on the flipper, keeping fingers safely out of the way.
Locks the blade safely open during use. Prevents the blade from accidentally closing while you’re using the knife. Easy to reclose when you’re done. A very sturdy style of blade lock.
Lets you position the pocketclip for tip-up or tip-down, left-handed or right-handed carry.
Enables the knife to ride comfortably and discreetly low in your pocket.

Kershaw will re-sharpen this for you if you send it back to them free of charge (in warranty). How cool is that?
This is not the highest quality steel there is out there but for $30 I think it is the best I have ever used.
Out of the box, the knife was a bit sluggish opening which some may be slightly disappointed with. At this level of effort, this is NOT a flaw. A knife of this type should be a bit tight until cycled several times and maybe having a small drop of oil on the pivot. Mine worked in as expected and now deploys with satisfying speed. (The time spent working in the action is great practice for deploying the knife one handed, by the way.)
The blade profile and construction is very nice for a knife of this type, and the blade is finished in a decent factory grind. This level of finish is generally suitable for 'most' buyers. The edge grabs the material fairly aggressively and cuts with little effort. For those who want a bit more refined cut, I'm sure a few minutes with a quality whetstone will have the knife running as expected.
I'd gladly recommend this knife if you are looking for one of this size. This knife's bigger brother (1556TI Cryo II) is a nice knife as well, and about 20% bigger in all dimensions.
