Kershaw G10 Cryo Assist
Kershaw G10 Cryo Assist

The much anticipated Kershaw Cryo assist knife with a G10 handle scale is finally here.  Built just like the earlier Cryo knives, this Rick Hinderer classic opens fast and locks up tight via a sturdy framelock.  The newest Cryo boasts a stonewash finished blade, a G10 handle scale on the front and a stainless steel back scale.

The Cryo has been delighting knife lovers for over two years.  With incredibly fast action, this knife uses the very dependable SpeedSafe® assist mechanism from Kershaw.  The blade opens with a slight pull on the flipper.  If you prefer, you can use either of the dual thumbstuds as well.  Once started, the assist mechanism takes charge and snaps the blade out with speed and authority.  Lock up is very tight with absolutely no movement in the blade once open.

The handle has a G10 front scale.  Jimping on the spine and inside edge of the handle create traction spots so you keep a solid grip on the handle even when bearing down on a cut.  The black G10 front scale adds even more traction and makes for a solid grip no matter what the conditions–wet, slippery, cold, etc.

If you love class and style in a dependable package you are going to love the Cryo.  This is the Hinderer knife built at a price you just can’t afford to ignore.  Get yours here on our website and let us know what you think of it down below.
