The Aqua Salt is an amazingly versatile, do-everything knife made even better with the benefit of an H-1 steel blade. Fans of this workhorse design—including many military personnel—were devastated when it was discontinued. Based on popular demand, the Aqua Salt is back and better than ever with a non-reflective titanium carbonitride (TiCN) blade coating. Available with a plain edge or spyder edge, its hollow-ground blade provides excellent edge geometry for effective cutting and edge retention, while its injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) handle features Bi-Directional Texturing for a rock-solid grip and superior control, even with wet hands. A matching injection-molded polymer sheath features a multi-position G-Clip for fully configurable belt or waistband carry and grommeted construction so it can be easily lashed or flex-tied to personal equipment.

GREAT KNIFE!
I have owned many knives over the years and the second I put this one in my hand, it just felt at home. One of the most comfortable I've ever held. After reading many great comments, I decided to buy one and could not be Happier. All the positive reviews I've read hold true, Exactly what I was looking for. And thank you Knife center for actually having some in stock as they were hard to find!

Awesome steak knife!
I know it’s a little pricey but it glides through even the biggest steaks like a laser beam 😃 Easy clean up and will never rust. I wish they had a set of 5 or something...

Excellent product
I’m a sea fisherman, and I bought this knife after much searching. I was looking for a knife with a sheath to protect the edge and a non-rusting steel that could tolerate sitting in my fishing box ready for action while being bounced around in the back of the car or boat without having to worry about it rusting. This knife ticks all the boxes.Pros, While in use the knife is soaked in salt water then put back into its sheath and tossed into the box and can remain there for days before being used again – no rust spots or marks of any kind – Wonderful! When it’s cold and wet, and your hands are covered in fish slime, the hand never fails to give a good solid grip. The steel holds a good edge once sharpened.Cons, although sharp out of the box it was not razor sharp and needed touching up to give it that edge. The handle is moulded onto the blade, so needs the flashing trimming at the middle, there were bits missed and it was rough in places. For a knife costing this much and coming from Spyderco, I would expect this to be picked up in their QA processes. What might improve this product would be to make the handle out of a buoyant and brightly coloured material, being black handle and black blade if it's dropped you’ve lost it!Overall: The cons are minor irritations if you work in or near a highly corrosive environment this knife is superb. Highly recommend
