SP89SBK: C89SBK Atlantic Salt Black FRN

It's been speculated the sheepfoot shaped blade originated with mariners who found the rounded tip especially beneficial when the knife was accidentally dropped (think working on a ship in pitching seas) as it couldn't stab the foot when hitting the deck. It's also been hypothesized that commanding officers on these ships preferred rambunctious hardworking sailors carry knives without pointed tips, especially while in port blowing off steam after months at sea.

Spyderco's Rescue knives are long favored by seafarers and the design has since been embraced by rescue workers, EMT's and ranchers-anyone cutting around flesh in an emergency. Now available in a rustproof version, the Atlantic Salt is a modified Rescue made with state of the art non-rusting H1 steel. H1 is a precipitation-hardened steel containing nitrogen instead of carbon, which cannot rust. The serrated hollow-ground blade offers remarkable cutting performance in and around fresh and saltwater. Textured with a Volcano Grip pattern, the molded fiberglass reinforced nylon (FRN) handle is black, equipped with a reversible titanium pocket clip for right or left- handed use. We recommend threading a thong or lanyard cord through the lanyard hole for back-up retention around water, where once dropped, a knife is often irretrievable or lost.

Cons: None
H1 is wondrous
Wicked sharp blade. I cut myself accidentally just closing it. This has to be one of the sharpest knife steels ever made. They should make the bi-directional handle material for all their H1 steel models. That's a minor dispute, not that big of a deal. Another win for Spyderco.

Spyderco Atlantic Salt H1 serrated rescue folding knife
Spyderco makes a good rescue knife. This one is even better because it's make with H1 steel. H1 steel does not rust. Rain, humidity and sweat will not damage this H1 steel. The blunt tip is a good choice when working around animals or people.
