SP89SYL: C89SYL Atlantic Salt Yellow 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 visible marine yellow, 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.

Awesome Marine Folder
I've had this knife for almost a year now, it doesn't see to much use since I'm not always on the water but when I am this is one of the must have knives. The H1 steel is just superb. The only problem I have with this knife is that in the Spydie hole it has a burn mark. Assuming from heat treating or something I'm unsure. When I took this knife in the salt water I was amazed at how it didn't rust as it said except for one tiny spot on the H1 engraved spot on the blade. Those are the only two flaws this knife has.

Spyderco Atlantic Salt 1 rescue blade
Since I live on a large lake and own a fishing boat, the knife is a real workhorse for me. I appreciate the design, quality and even the bright yellow color which means you can always find it.
