SP106SBK: C106SBK Tasman Salt Black FRN
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 serrated hollow-ground blade offers remarkable cutting performance in and around fresh and saltwater. The black fiberglass reinforced nylon (FRN) handle is texturedwith 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 sacrifi ce 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.

Pros: Lock Type, Pocket Clip, Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Handle Material, Weight, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Great knife for self defence
The perfect knife to carry without anyone knowing about it, it very lightweight, strong and the serrated edge can do some serious cutting. Don't be fooled by the size, with the correct application this is a serious self defence knife for those looking for something discrete. I have other knives but this is my favorite.

Cons: Pocket Clip, None
Good tree climbing rescue knife
Could do with being a little deeper in the pocket whilst suspended from it's supplied clip. These things are always damp in your pocket thanks to our weather. But they never seem to tarnish

Cons: None
Great EDC
I purcahsed this knife for utility/defensive carry (god forbid) at work. I carry it inside the waistband of my scrubs so perspiration is an issue. Blade is great and the knife seems to be pretty durable even without liners. It is very light and easy to conceal. Also it is small enough not to be offensive (unlike the matriarch, which may be the better choice for defensive purposes)
