From the manufacturer
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.
Rick Hinderer and Kershaw Collaboration
If you’ve been craving a Rick Hinderer knife, but couldn’t quite part with the bucks, your last excuse has just disappeared. The Cryo is the result of collaboration between Rick Hinderer and the design and production engineers at Kershaw. And we’re sure it will satisfy both your Hinderer craving and the demands of your wallet.
A classic Rick Hinderer design, the Cryo 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 Rick’s knives, the Cryo benefits from Rick’s real world experience as a fire fighter and EMT. It’s designed to be a sturdy knife that’s still aesthetically pleasing and feels good in the hand.
For secure blade lock up, the Cryo offers a tough frame lock with lockbar stabilization. The Cryo also features Kershaw’s SpeedSafe assisted opening for fast and easy one-handed opening. Access it with either the built-in flipper or the thumbstud.

This Kershaw 155TI Cryo SpeedSafe Folding knife is a fantastic knife. It comes very sharp but I have had it long enough that I have had to sharpen it and it holds the sharp edge fairly well. It is appropriately sized to conceal or carry in your pocket, whatever verbiage you want to use, in the state I live in. I suggest you check your local laws if you are unsure. It will prevent you from going to jail and that is a great thing.
I have several knives and I carry this Kershaw knife every day. This Kershaw Cryo knife fits in my pocket well and doesn't drag my pocket down much. There is a nice clip that holds it to your pocket if you want to carry it that way. It opens with one hand easily and is able to be closed one handed if you are careful. It has a locking frame which holds the blade very stable for use. I love this particular knife.
The finish is nice and hasn't worn at all in the 2 years I have owned it. Well worth the price you pay for it. I have seen many other knives in this price range and they are not normally of this high a quality.
I have read that this is a Chinese manufactured blade, although I am not sure. Supposedly the US manufactured blades are superior strength and quality but I have to tell you I cannot imagine it is significantly better for the average persons’ usage.
If you found my review helpful I would appreciate that you click the “Yes” button to let me know that I am providing useful information to you and others.
#2: blade is not centered and riding against side of the frame.
#3: blade thickness is much thinner then the other blade.
#4: frame is thinner as well with jimping only half as deep then the other knife. Also shape of the frame is (at edges are tapered off different)
#5: thumb studs are different ( one has 3 steps/ other 4 steps)/ Different shape pins- one is rounded / other flat.
even washers are different shade.
If I only would of bought 1 knife I probably wouldn't have noticed all these differences but now I am very glad I did.
It just blows my mind how can Kershaw send me 2 knifes that couldn't be more different in quality.
I will attach several pictures to this review so you be the judge.
Sending one of them back for a refund.
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.
Not everyone is aware, but it is against federal law to possess a knife with a blade length greater than "two and one half inches" while in a federal building. Obnoxious, unhelpful, possibly unconstitutional law, but it is what it is.
Normally carrying a larger blade in my agency would be no big deal. Even if the worst happened you might be asked not to bring it to work the next day. But when you are in the legal office and are the resident security expert it's important to toe the line as much as possible. I have shown this blade to our police and they were perfectly happy - one wrote down the brand as she wanted one for herself. I used this knife as an example when we were writing our security rules. The attorneys were pleased after measuring it with a ruler, despite the manufacturer quoted length.
Good steel, very nice pocket clip, rock solid lock-up. And I can take it to work, rather than it living in my dresser along with my bigger blades.
