SP118SYL: C118SYL Saver Salt Yellow 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.

I'm keeping it in my fly fishing vest. Sharp, easy to find if you drop it, nice size, light weight. A little pricey....

SALT Saver- good rescue/boaters knife
This knife is lightweight, fully serrated, has a blunt tip, and will not rust. I am not generally a fan of the thumbhole because I have trouble opening them, but the large thumbhole on this knife is easy to open quickly. It is ambidextrous and when fully opened has a firm, ridged thumbrest. If you'll be using a knife in or around water, make sure it is this knife, or has all of its features.
