If youâ€™ve been craving a Rick Hinderer knife, but couldnâ€™t quite part with the bucks, your last excuse has just disappeared. The Cryo is the result of collaboration between Rick Hinderer and the design and production engineers at Kershaw. And weâ€™re sure it will satisfy both your Hinderer craving and the demands of your wallet. A classic Rick Hinderer design, the Cryo is built of pure stainless steel coated with matte grey titanium carbo-nitride for a no-fuss look that lets the design shine through. Like all Rickâ€™s knives, the Cryo benefits from Rickâ€™s real world experience as a fire fighter and EMT. Itâ€™s designed to be a sturdy knife thatâ€™s still aesthetically pleasing and feels good in the hand. For secure blade lock up, the Cryo offers a tough frame lock with lockbar stabilization. The Cryo also features Kershawâ€™s SpeedSafe assisted opening for fast and easy one-handed opening. Access it with either the built-in flipper or the thumbstud. Slightly smaller than some Hinderer pocketknives, the Cryo is a superb knife for every day carry. EDC this guy for a while and we think youâ€™ll soon appreciate its virtues. You get the tactical, hard-use looks youâ€™re looking for, a Hinderer design, and SpeedSafe opening in this amazingly affordable Kershaw thatâ€™s destined to be the Hinderer for the rest of us.
The Kershaw Leek just may be the ideal EDC. With its 3-inch blade, the Leek is a good-sized knife, but not too big. The slim design makes it easy to carry and its razor-sharp blade of high-performance Sandvik 14C28N means it can take care of a full range of cutting tasks. The blade is a modified drop-point, so itâ€™s a good slicing knife, while the slim tip gives it piercing capability and the ability to do detailed work. For a partially serrated blade, choose the 1660ST Leek. Like other â€œOnionâ€ knives, the Leek features the SpeedSafe ambidextrous assisted opening system. Whether youâ€™re left-handed or right-handed, just pull back on the blade protrusion or push outward on the thumbstud and the Leekâ€™s blade is ready to go to work. In addition to its 14C28N blade, this Leek features a handle of pure stainless steel that gives it a clean, sleek look. For confident blade use, a super-secure frame lock keeps the blade locked during use and a Tip-Lock slider locks the blade closed when folded. The pocketclip can be configured for tip-up or tip-down carry and the handle is drilled to accept a lanyard.

The Brawler starts with a modified tanto bladeâ€”a shape often found in tactical and rescue knives that may be required to punch through tough materials. The tanto is an ideal shape for these piercing tasks because there is plenty of metal to support the point, making it stronger than many other blade shapes. Youâ€™ll notice that the top of the Brawlerâ€™s blade has a grind, too. This is called a swedge; it helps narrow the blade, adding to its piercing power. At the same time, the Brawlerâ€™s straight belly offers excellent cutting capacity, is perfect for bearing down on a task, and is easy to resharpen. All this makes the Brawler an excellent utility knife. The Brawlerâ€™s handle is just as functional. The angled handle curves into the palm of the userâ€™s hand. Jimping on the back of the blade offers additional traction. With the blade deployed, the flipper doubles as a finger guard and provides additional hand protection during knife use. For fast and easy one-handed opening, the Brawler is equipped with SpeedSafe. Just pull back on the flipper and the SpeedSafe assisted opening system takes over, moving the blade out of the handle, ready for use. Sturdy glass-filled nylon handle scales, a secure locking liner, and our four-position pocketclip complete the package.
