SP91PYL: C91PYL Pacific Salt
A big myth in the knife world is that out there somewhere is a knife that seriously cuts but cannot rust. Knives claiming these super powers are usually made with steels that are unable to hold a cutting edge for any measurable amount of time. Finally a steel foundry in Japan called Myodo Foundry makes this myth a reality with the introduction of a new steel called H1. H1 steel is a PH steel, meaning it is a precipitation-hardened steel. "Huh" you ask? Utilizing .1% nitrogen instead of carbon to harden the steel, it reaches a Rockwell hardness of 57-58rc. Spyderco uses H1 on its new C91 Pacific Salt model.

It's similar in shape and size to Spyderco's best-selling Endura model but with a slightly more rounded tip. All internal steel parts are treated as well making them impervious to rust and pitting and of course, salt. Those challenged by cleaning and maintaining their knives will find the Pacific Salt stays rust-free even if put away wet. The blade's hole is enlarged to 14mm for easier opening/closing with gloved, wet or cold hands. Textured in a checkerboard pattern, the yellow FRN handle has a grippy texture and is fitted with a reversible titanium pocket clip which positions for right-handers and lefties. The addition of a lanyard hole offers a backup method of attachment (thong or lanyard cord) for use around water where once dropped, a knife is often lost or elusively hard to retrieve.

My new fishing companion!
I will use this knife mainly for fishing and boating. Its very light and sharp. It is much lighter than I expected. Which is a good thing when you are on a boat or in the water. I like for a knife to be there when I need it, but I don't want to constantly feel the weight of it.

Quality Spyderco
Just like an Endura... solid knife and very sharp blade. I carry it inside the waistband as a EDC at work...thumb hole was sharp so I reamed it smooth . No problems opening... now!

H1 Salt rocks!
Had to venture out and get a Salt model, just to see what all of the rave was about. The knife is along the lines of the Endura model with a more rounded tip. This H1 blade is really nice. I had it out in the rain and cold for about a week and no rust or even a hint of tarnish. Very durable and awesome to have in my rotation.
