Great knife, rare in the UK

I originally purchased this knife from a supplier in the UK who kept lying to me and not sending it out. Nobody seems to have any in stock so I relented and purchased from the Knife Center USA. I am an offshore commercial diver and use a Spyderco Atlantic Salt as my in water knife attached to a special clip coil lanyard with the belt clip removed. I found the Spyderco Assist and knew it would make a fantastic deck knife, for use in cutting any rope, tape or anything else that needed cutting whilst working on deck. The Assist Salt model made the most sense as I have had good use out of my Atlantic and so far no rust or problems. The regular assist model is easy to find but the Salt model isn't. Thankfully KC had one in stock and shipped it to the UK very quickly. The knife is strong, stronger than the Atlantic due to the thicker handle and broad blade. The whistle is a great feature to have, mainly to call the attention of crew/divers during noisy surface operations. The window breaker is good to have, although I will probably never use it. The blade itself is more useful than a full serrated edge because you can use the plain end of it for detailed cutting such as cutting tape. I find that the best sharpener for these spyderco blades is the Lansky Blademedic as it does the serrations and plain edge perfectly.

This is a lifesaver!

The size and feel of this knife give a great feeling of confidence, easy to open, solid reassuring locking click. Great design in the length and usability of the blade. Killer sharp. The function of cutting rope by squeezing the blade into the handle is brilliance. Hidden carbide glass breaker easy to deploy when needed. Even with gloves on this is a easy tool to use efficiently. Won't rust, sharp as a laser(will get better over time), multi functioned,.. Will be a great asset to your emergency gear.

Very handy knife

For all intents and purposes, this knife is a worker. Extremely sharp, good opening action and lock-up. Given blade material and quality you can beat the hell out of this thing, and will continue to cut. Great grip, perfect for extreme environments or just to keep in your vehicle in case of emergencies. Good product for the price.

Well...

Much bulkier than I expected, but then again, it's a rescue knife. Good for keeping in car or in kit, but not so much a daily carry or keeping on your person while biking. Ended up returning for this reason. Went for a Manix 2. If you need an emergency specific responder knife, something for a motorcycle kit, probably a good choice. Can it cut like a saw through carbon or small branches? I doubt it. Belts and clothes? Yes.
