The Cryo II design is slightly larger with a 3.25” blade but is still extremely slim, lending itself to be a superb option for EDC or tactical uses. It includes a four-position deep carry pocket clip to customize exactly how you want to carry it. The knife and handle also have jimping, or grooves, to increase grip while using the knife in adverse conditions. Combining the knowledge of Rick Hinderer with the affordability of Kershaw and their innovative SpeedSafe technology has given rise to an EDC knife that can be appreciated by all.

Their knives have many features such as SpeedSafe assisted opening, interchangeable blades, and composite blade technology which increases strength and edge retention.

China Kerhaw not much better then $5 cheap knife.
by COREY G -
The Speedsafe system on mine would only lock up approx 50-60% of the time, about 20% of the time the blade would only deploy to 90-120 Degrees. Not what you want in a assisted opening knife. I have several USA made Kershaw knifes and have never had a problem, this was my first China Kershaw. Waited about a month to see if it needed to wear in, also cleaned and put a little oil in. Still about the same, perhaps a little better, contacted Kershaw. Their response was I could ship it to them to be looked at on my dime or they would send me parts? Not a knife smith, so I declined to waste any more time or money on this. Also much bulkier then the CRYO 1, I would take a pass there is better stuff out there for $20

My EDC for a couple years now

I really love this knife! So much so that I own a second one as a back-up in the unfortunate circumstance I accidentally lose the one I carry daily. It does take a little time and oil to get the assisted opening to settle in, but honestly not that much and it's no different than other knives when brand new. I admittedly don't baby it. Full disclosure, I accidentally snapped the tip off of the original blade through what some might consider inappropriate use. I was in a pinch and it was the tool in my hand. I sent it back to Kershaw and they replaced/installed the blade. I paid only shipping, which was less than half the retail price to replace it.
