Spyderco's Atlantic Salt and Pacific Salt knives are designed to offer reliable high performance with a never-rust H-1 steel blade for working sailors. Now it's available with a bright yellow handle so it is easy to find on deck. Spyderco's Salt Series shines in fresh and saltwater staying rust-free even if put away wet. Hollow-ground, the H-1 blade is PlainEdged and virtually impervious to rust. It's similar in shape and size to Spyderco's bestselling Endura model but with more rounded tip to prevent accidents on a pitching and rolling deck.
All internal steel parts are treated as well making them impervious to rust and pitting. The blade's hole is enlarged to 14mm for easier opening/closing with gloved, wet or cold hands. Textured in a Volcano Grip pattern, the black fiberglass handle has a grippy texture and is fitted with a black Titanium pocket clip that reverses position for both left and right-handers. The addition of a lanyard hole offers a backup method of attachment (thong or lanyard cord) for use around water where once dropped, a knife is often lost or elusively hard to retrieve.
The Atlantic salt is fully serrated and has a sheepsfoot blade tip. This is a great emergency knife to keep on your belt because the serrations eat through lines in a hurry.
The Pacific salt is virtually identical but features a plain edge blade with a sharper point. This is the perfect knife for routine chores and work on deck.
