SP106PYL: C106PYL Tasman Salt Yellow FRN
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 visible marine yellow 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 sacrifice 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.

Pros: Blade Material, Weight, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Pocket Clip, None
Great piece of mind for salt water fishing
The knife is lightweight and perfectly sized for emergency use while fishing. The curved blade provides good leverage for cutting rope or line. It would be nice if the pocket clip permitted carry deeper in the pocket.

Used it day of
Got it in the morning. Hiked a rough, wet, muddy down and up later that day. Slashed through some vines that my dog got caught up in with easy. Hawkbill acted as a super sheepsfoot. Knife got rained on, muddy, and sandy in the lock. Washed with water, worked fine after and no rust weeks later. Sharp out of the box but a couple passes on the ultra fine sharpmaker stones made it shaving sharp. Good blade. Considering purchasing another salt series.

Great Knife Look Mom no Rust
I purchased this knife over a year ago, and use it as one of my edc. I live here in florida and boat often, so not having to worry about my knife rusting is one less hassel. I have gone diving with this knife, rinsed with water and she is good to go. No pit, no rust, no issue what so ever since purchased.
