Description
SP106PYL: C106PYL Tasman Salt Yellow FRN
Spyderco
 
The Tasman Salt folder features a Hawkbill blade. This distinctive curved cutting tool has a claw-like tip that originated in the marine/commercial fishing industry. Cutting in and around water involves cutting line, netting and rope and it’s done quickly, often at arm’s length while pulling downward or toward you. The blade’s arcing tip holds what you’re cutting against the sharpened edge keeping it from slipping off the tip. Spyderco’s rustproof Hawkbill blade is made with state of the art non-rusting H-1 steel. H-1 is a precipitation-hardened steel containing nitrogen instead of carbon, which cannot rust. The plain edge hollow-ground blade offers remarkable cutting performance in and around fresh and saltwater. The visible marine yellow fiberglass reinforced nylon (FRN) handle is textured with a Volcano Grip pattern. It’s equipped with a reversible left/right hand titanium pocket clip (also non-rusting) that positions the folder tip-up in the pocket. We recommend threading a thong or cord through the lanyard hole for back-up retention around water, where once dropped, a knife is often lost or irretrievable.

About the H-1 Stainless Steel in Salt Knives

A myth in the knife world is that there exists steel with high-performance cutting abilities that cannot rust. Many non-rusting blade steels make it to the market but they all sacrifice edge retention and cutting power. Myth becomes reality with the introduction of H-1 steel. H-1 is a precipitation-hardened alloy with .1% nitrogen that performs like carbon in the steel matrix but won’t react to chlorine, making rust. It holds a sharpened edge comparable to premium carbon-based knife steels. Independent testing by Crucible Steel Inc. shows H-1 work-hardens at the cutting edge when processed and sharpened, raising Rc hardness and durability. Simply put, H-1 is ideal for advanced cutting performance in and around fresh and saltwater. Internal knife components are also impervious to rust and pitting.

Great Knife Look Mom no Rust
I purchased this knife over a year ago, and use it as one of my edc. I live here in florida and boat often, so not having to worry about my knife rusting is one less hassel. I have gone diving with this knife, rinsed with water and she is good to go. No pit, no rust, no issue what so ever since purchased.

Great Knife
I used this knife to cut muliple lines off a prop fowl. Lobstering in San Diego Bay at night shoved us against the rocks with lines tangled around prop. I cut those lines so easily when I needed to do so in a dangerous situation. The H1 was my buddies but I was so impressed, I bought one myself and now feel ready for anything on the boat.

awesome knife but
This is a great little knife I cut a lot of rope and net during my days. My only bit of warning is I switched the pocket clip to the other side and the knife opened in my pocket when i went for it and sliced the tip off my pinky knuckle off. Nice and sharp hah. I switched it back and I'm doing fine.
