Description
SP106PBK: C106PBK Tasman Salt Black FRN
Spyderco
 
The Tasman Salt folder features a Hawkbill blade. This distinctive curved cutting tool has a claw-like tip that originated in the marine/commercial fishing industry. Cutting in and around water involves cutting line, netting and rope and it’s done quickly, often at arm’s length while pulling downward or toward you. The blade’s arcing tip holds what you’re cutting against the sharpened edge keeping it from slipping off the tip. Spyderco’s rustproof Hawkbill blade is made with state of the art non-rusting H-1 steel. H-1 is a precipitation-hardened steel containing nitrogen instead of carbon, which cannot rust. The plain edge hollow-ground blade offers remarkable cutting performance in and around fresh and saltwater. The black fiberglass reinforced nylon (FRN) handle is textured with a Volcano Grip pattern. It’s equipped with a reversible left/right hand titanium pocket clip (also non-rusting) that positions the folder tip-up in the pocket. We recommend threading a thong or cord through the lanyard hole for back-up retention around water, where once dropped, a knife is often lost or irretrievable.

About the H-1 Stainless Steel in Salt Knives

A myth in the knife world is that there exists steel with high-performance cutting abilities that cannot rust. Many non-rusting blade steels make it to the market but they all sacrifi ce edge retention and cutting power. Myth becomes reality with the introduction of H-1 steel. H-1 is a precipitation-hardened alloy with .1% nitrogen that performs like carbon in the steel matrix but won’t react to chlorine, making rust. It holds a sharpened edge comparable to premium carbon-based knife steels. Independent testing by Crucible Steel Inc. shows H-1 work-hardens at the cutting edge when processed and sharpened, raising Rc hardness and durability. Simply put, H-1 is ideal for advanced cutting performance in and around fresh and saltwater. Internal knife components are also impervious to rust and pitting.

Great Knife
I got this knife as a backup edc blade for my Native. I went with the H1 because on weekends I spend most of my time around the water and need a knife that I don't have to worry about. Overall, I'm very impressed with this knife. It is much thinner (the handle) than I expected and almost feels like it's not even on your person when you're wearing it. It carries tip up, but because of the strong detent I can carry it IWB without having to worry. My only slight observation, and this may be for a number of reasons, is that I find it a bit pricey when compared to other spydercos (like the native for instance). The Native is A LOT of knife for the money, and only costs about $4 more than this one. Overall I'm very satisfied, and this blade should serve its purpose great as a backup edc/last ditch SD knife. Couldn't be happier with the transaction, I recommend this knife to anyone who needs a rust proof edc with an awesome hawkbill.
