The Kershaw and Zero Tolerance knives that have been designed by Rick Hinderer have been nothing short of a smash hit, especially the affordable Cryo. Kershaw is following the success of the Cryo with a new affordable Hinderer design in the Thermite.
The Thermite features a very Hinderer-esque 3.5″ 8Cr13MoV steel “tanto” blade. Like many Kershaw knives, it features a spring assist mechanism. It has a steel frame lock and a machined G-10 scale. The deep carry pocket clip is configurable for tip up, tip down, left, and right side carry.
These cost $5-6 more than the Cryo but they are larger and feature a G-10 scale. This looks like a solid value.
