The 1555TI Kershaw Cryo Is One Of The Most Trusted EDC Knives. Here’s Why.

There are people that like knives, and there are people that just can’t leave for work without the best possible knife for their budget in their pocket.

I fall somewhere in between because I definitely need a knife in my everyday carry, but I really don’t care whether it’s on a Multitool or a stand-alone.

Like many, all that really matters at the end of the day is that the knife you’re carrying is going to accomplish 90% or more of the cutting tasks you are presented with.

I’ve carried a swiss army knife for years. It was the knife of choice primarily because it didn’t scare my co-workers. No one gives it a second thought when they come over to my desk to talk and it’s right there next to my mouse and keyboard.

As the Everyday Carry community has grown, and more people are desensitized to more aggressive knives in general, I felt that it was time to up my game.

I wanted something that was sturdy, could handle most of the tasks I’d be throwing at it, and most of all, maintain a low profile when it’s sitting on my desk.

I looked into several knives but chose the Kershaw Cryo for a number of reasons.

My Reasons For Choosing the Kershaw Cryo

The first thing I really like about the knife is that it’s not too aggressive looking. It just doesn’t have the look of a knife that Jack the Ripper would have.

Sitting on the desk, it almost blends in with all the other dreary gray colors – my mouse, keyboard, and mousepad. My coworkers noticed that I switched knives, but I have a feeling that’s because they noticed that my new knife wasn’t red anymore.

The second reason that I chose the Cryo was due to its usability. One-handed opening and closing really come in handy. Neither the SAK or the Opinel could do that. The only time I had a one hand opener was on my multitool, but I really don’t have that on my belt as much as a knife in my pocket. I find most usable multitools too heavy for my dress pants, although it does come with me in the backpack every day.

The Cryo has a removable pocket clip, and I’ve removed it so it doesn’t snag in my pocket. I really don’t like things hanging off my belt or out of my pockets when I’m working the clients. When you have to walk into a boardroom to give a big sales presentation and a $3000 to $6000 commission is at stake, you’d better not leave anything to chance with your appearance, right? As inconspicuous as a knife clip is, it’s just not worth losing that much money over.
