I really disliked this knife, its small for a Hinderer design, which made it feel weird in my hand. And the Assist mechanism is annoying as well. I thought this would be a good back-up that I could just leave in one of my bags, because I often opt to not carry my daily if Im going into the city, but it felt so junky that I didnt bother and sent it back.
But like others have said, it could be a dirt cheap gate-way knife if your are curious about the Hinderer design. I have a ZT0566, which is the perfect size for me, its a little bigger than this Cryo, and much heavier. The Assist bar is removable on the ZT's which is a must. One because it's illegal in my area to carry assisted knives and two, because it is like butter without it! I have not met an assisted knife that Ive liked. The main selling point for the ZT0566, for me, was because it was deassistable. Which btw- the Cryo is not. At least not without so major work.
The problem with these Hinderer knives are that they're not cheap. Which makes the this Cryo such a tempting purchase. But be warned: If your a tweaker like me, and you get this knife, you're going immediately want a better Hinderer. This purchase is going to cost a lot more than 23 buck in the long run! :P
