    It's way worth the street price and more. Mine functions perfectly - it's too small for my tastes and I prefer manual action but the Cryo is a really good knife. I still prefer my Zings for the $10 price differential but the Cryo doesn't have to take a back seat to any other knife in its overall sector. Well done Kershaw IMHO.

    Really?

    At something like 25% of the price, it looks like a ZT/Hinderer; but....

    Now I have a gift card that I didn't have to pay for, and a chance to get one. I want to know what I should expect for my money.

    I know I ain't getting no Hinderer. but can anybody tell me what am I getting?

    Thanks
    It's the design / shape / features of a Hinderer but made by Kershaw.

    I like it a lot. I have another in the mail.

    Having said that I'd like to see a made in the US version with a sandvik steel blade. Maybe even a partially serrated blade.

    According to Thomas it is not 8cr, and if I remember correctly, I think he said it is 420.


    Still loving the hell out of this knife.

    For the money, it's a great knife.

    Would I take it over a 0550/0560/XM series? Obviously, no. But for $35, it's a lot better than most knives at that price range. Yes, I said most.

    I'd still take a Tenacious over it though.

    I've been there too, which has persuaded me to stop pre-ordering except on Sprint runs and dealer exclusives.

    You are getting a few elements of a Hinderer but it is no XM-18. However you definitely get more bang for your buck with the Cryo.

    I like the knife. Very budget friendly, and I actually like the 8CR13 steel. Performs just fine for the tasks that I perform regularly. Size is also a big plus, IMO. You get the Hinderer feel in a smaller package and won't break the bank in the process. Just get a 560, this, and an XM-18 and you'll be good for a couple of weeks.

    The Cryo is a watered down rendition of a Hinderer style design
    and it's a freak'n awesome little blade.

    If I understood the BladeOps video correctly, it's 410 Stainless.

    The Cryo is perfect for throwing into airport checked baggage; something I'd never do with high end knives.

    It looks like a good knife for a great price.
