Description
SP91PBK: C91PBK Pacific Salt
Spyderco
 
A big myth in the knife world is that out there somewhere is a knife that seriously cuts but cannot rust. Knives claiming these super powers are usually made with steels that are unable to hold a cutting edge for any measurable amount of time. Finally a steel foundry in Japan called Myodo Foundry makes this myth a reality with the introduction of a new steel called H1. H1 steel is a PH steel, meaning it is a precipitation-hardened steel. "Huh" you ask? Utilizing .1% nitrogen instead of carbon to harden the steel, it reaches a Rockwell hardness of 57-58rc. Spyderco uses H1 on its new C91 Pacific Salt model.

It's similar in shape and size to Spyderco's best-selling Endura model but with a slightly more rounded tip. All internal steel parts are treated as well making them impervious to rust and pitting and of course, salt. Those challenged by cleaning and maintaining their knives will find the Pacific Salt stays rust-free even if put away wet. The blade's hole is enlarged to 14mm for easier opening/closing with gloved, wet or cold hands. Textured in a checkerboard pattern, the black FRN handle has a grippy texture and is fitted with a reversible titanium pocket clip which positions for right-handers and lefties. 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.

Pros: Lock Type, Blade Material, Lock Ease of Use, Pocket Clip, Overall Quality, Weight, Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
Lightweight but full sized
In 30 years as a police officer I've carried many different types of knives, from a Buck folder to a Gerber multitool. I have learned to look for a strong, light, simple tool, because this is the tool you'll carry everyday. With the C91PBK I found such a knife. I have had three other Spyderco knives in my career including one that said Police on it. The C91PBK comes to me in my retierment and meets my needs as a good lightweight tool with a quick opening sharpe blade and a strong pocket clip. Looking forward to carrying for many years.

Cons: None
Great Lightweight Knife
At 3 oz. and 3 13/16 inch blade, this is a great light weight knife. Blade holds an edge very well and comes very sharp out of the box from Spyderco! It is a big blade, but so lightweight that I do not notice it. It has become my EDC knife of choice.

Razor Sharp
I have always liked Spyderco products. The Pacific Salt is awesome. Blade is razor sharp. Knife is easy to deploy. Have not tested it in salt water yet. after reading a dozens of positive reviews about Syderco H1 .I have no doubt about it.
