Kershaw Cryo II Pocket Knife Review

BOB Prepper's Choice for an EDC Knife.

This has been my go-to knife since April 2017. Designed by renown knife designer Rick Hinderer, the blackwash finish on stainless steel looks fantastic and has a great hand feel, the worn feel of the handle add security to the grip. This is a sturdy knife folks, with a secure blade lockup using a tough frame lock and SpeedSafe Assisted Opening accessed using either a thumbstud or flipper. Easy, one handed deployment and absolutely no wiggle in the blade.

The blade is composed of 8Cr13MoV stainless steel that was sharp on delivery and has held it’s edge after three years of punishment.

The clip is solid and can be changes to left handed deployment. The handle itself is .38″ thick and fits nicely into my front jeans pocket.

All in all, I have nothing bad to say about this knife. No matter if it’s your EDC or backup, its a pleasing, well crafted, solid knife.

Excellent Knife! This knife has a great feel in my hand, the weight is excellent. Very solid, once locked, the bade doesn't move a bit. The quick deployment is fantastic, very, very smooth movement. Razor sharp right out of the package. The clip is very sturdy, I clip mine in my front jeans packet and it stays put and out of the way, easy to pull out, then clips back nicely. The look is excellent, like it's been my trusted knife for years.
