SP118SBK: C118SBK Saver Salt Black FRN
Yet another addition to Spyderco’s non-rusting Salt Series knife line, the C118 Saver Salt. The blades found on all Salt Series models are made with an alloy called H-1. H-1 is non-rusting premium-performance steel that’s raising interest in fishing, boating and diving circles. Why? Because it cuts for extended amounts of time before needing sharpening and it can’t rust. H-1's edge retention compares to other high carbon knife steels but its most distinguishable characteristic is that its nitrogen based as opposed to carbon based. Carbon is the instigator in creating rust when it reacts to chloride. It’s also what makes a blade hard and stay sharp. Nitrogen also makes steel hard and edge retentive but it doesn’t react with chloride, so it cannot rust. Saver Salt’s Sheepfoot blade is rounded at the tip for cutting around inflatable watercraft, flesh and in emergencies. No pointed tip means no accidental puncturing. The blade is flat-saber-ground for cutting excellence in and out of water. The oversized 14mm Spyderco Round Hole works for opening/ closing even if hands are gloved, cold or wet. Available in black or marine yellow, the fiberglass reinforced nylon resin the handle comes textured with a grip-sticking waffle pattern. An ambidextrous tip-up pocket clip also houses a lanyard hole for a variety of carry possibilities. Please note that the clip on this knife is black.

1 Serious biting Spyder'!!!
I got this when it was on the specials page, and I believe I got it shipped for less than what it goes for now, w/o shipping :O! Anyway...This knife is Awesome, and it is rare that I am not carrying it! It is light, but REALLY strong; And the choil is awesome too, and fits my hand perfectly! Obviously, besides it being a Spyderco, the other best thing about it is that IT DOESN'T RUST...EVER!!!! That, to me is worth much more! The serated blade eats/bites, and rips through anything with amazing precision, and with ease/no effort! The handle(frn/fiberglass re-enforced nylon epoxy resin)may seem "cheap" to some, but it is very strong, and durable; I usually carry it in my back pocket(sometimes clipless), and it hasn't even bent!! Many will say that H1 performs best with Spyderteeth, and it does!!!! Highly recomended!
