Description
SP88PYL: Salt I
Spyderco

A myth in the knife world is that, out there somewhere exists steel with high-performance cutting abilities that cannot rust. A Japanese steel foundry recently turned this myth into reality with the introduction of a steel they call H1. H1 is a PH steel meaning it is a precipitation-processed alloy, that's rolled hard without heat-treating and has .1% nitrogen which acts like carbon in the steel matrix, but does not react to chlorine making rust. Surprisingly, it holds a sharpened cutting edge comparable to the premium knife steels being used in the industry by most knife manufacturers.

One of Spyderco's top sellers is our Delica Model. Users gravitate to it due to its sensible size, versatile shape and tested durability. It makes complete sense to plug H1 into this model, so we did, with a couple modifications. Salt I has a more rounded tip that's a bit thicker at the point. Since H1 was developed specifically for use in and around water, rounding the tip better met the requirements of cutting chores associated with boating and fishing. The Spyderco Round Hole is increased in diameter to 14mm facilitating easier access for gloved or wet hands. All inside/outside steel components (lock bar, pins and clip) have been treated making them impervious to rust and pitting. Volcano Grip texturing covers both sides of the FRN handle for friction-resistance to slipping. David Boye's locking lever dent is a standard feature that inhibits the lock from accidental release if the handle is gripped with great force. A matching black titanium pocket clip positions for left/right tip-up portability. A hole running through the hollow clip screw makes a lanyard pipe for stringing thong or cord through when using around water.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Weight, Blade Material
Cons: None
Great sailing knife
I used this knife during a 900 NM trip. H1 is really salt-water resistant and keeps a durable edge (similar to VG10). Shape of blade is indeed well suited for working in a moving environment.

Amazing water knife
I purchased this knife because I go to the beach a lot and always like to have one on me. I put paracord tied to my bathing suit and attach it to my knife and it hasn't gone anywhere. After about 4 hours of hard surf use, the whole knife was fine. Just had to rinse all the sand out and it worked like new. Highly recommend getting the black version if used as EDC, but all spyderco salt knives are a +!
