Kershaw 1555ti CRYO
This is the Kershaw 1555ti CRYO, and it looks awesome! It is an all steel knife with a cool looking Titanium carbo-nitride coating all over it. The black hardware give it a cool look, like it was the brainchild of the Terminator. The steel on the blade is 8cr13MoV, which is an all around good steel, especially for the price I was able to land on a pre-order. Kershaw's MSRP is $49, which means the street price will likely be $25-$30. The knife utilizes the same speedsafe opening mechanism that came on my Needs Work knife. Being an all steel knife, this one uses a frame to keep the knife from folding in on you when you are working it. I like the belly on the blade, and it appears to have a hollow grind. The gimping on the top of the blade is similar to my Needs Work, which is okay, but not great. Still, I love the overall look of this one and look forward to getting mine in the mail soon.
