SP91SYL: C91SYL 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.

Pros: Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness, Weight, Overall Quality
Cons: None
6 Months of Saltwater Use and No Rust
I waited half of the year to write this review because I wanted to see if the knife was really rust proof. After six months on a d-ring in the front pocket of a life vest that has seen around 60 days of wet sailing in a dinghy, there's not a spot on the knife. It's been taken out of the vest around three times for a quick rinse, but other than that it has been left to fend for itself. Product totally as advertised with respect to corrosion resistance. Great knife.
