The original Cryo was named a Blade Magazine Best Buy of the Year and Men’s Journal Approved Gear. This BlackWash version offers additional bad boy style. The Cryo is a collaboration between custom knifemaker Rick Hinderer and the design and production engineers at Kershaw. It’s built of pure stainless steel with an attractive, rough-and-tumble BlackWash finish. The Cryo is designed to be a sturdy knife that’s still aesthetically pleasing and feels good in the hand.
