SP118SBK: C118SBK Saver Salt Black FRN
Yet another addition to Spyderco’s non-rusting Salt Series knife line, the C118 Saver Salt. The blades found on all Salt Series models are made with an alloy called H-1. H-1 is non-rusting premium-performance steel that’s raising interest in fishing, boating and diving circles. Why? Because it cuts for extended amounts of time before needing sharpening and it can’t rust. H-1's edge retention compares to other high carbon knife steels but its most distinguishable characteristic is that its nitrogen based as opposed to carbon based. Carbon is the instigator in creating rust when it reacts to chloride. It’s also what makes a blade hard and stay sharp. Nitrogen also makes steel hard and edge retentive but it doesn’t react with chloride, so it cannot rust. Saver Salt’s Sheepfoot blade is rounded at the tip for cutting around inflatable watercraft, flesh and in emergencies. No pointed tip means no accidental puncturing. The blade is flat-saber-ground for cutting excellence in and out of water. The oversized 14mm Spyderco Round Hole works for opening/ closing even if hands are gloved, cold or wet. Available in black or marine yellow, the fiberglass reinforced nylon resin the handle comes textured with a grip-sticking waffle pattern. An ambidextrous tip-up pocket clip also houses a lanyard hole for a variety of carry possibilities.

Pros: Handle Material, Blade Material, Lock Ease of Use, Weight, Overall Quality, Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
The one I reach for.
SHARP! I buy a knife as a tool to use, and I have many. Opening boxes, cutting rope, carrying when I'm outside doing yard work, this is my go-to knife. When I say SHARP I mean it. Not bug cuts on my fingers, but several (& I'm careful). Love this knife.

Spyderco Salt Saver H-1 Serrated Blade
This knife is easy to open, sharp, and light. It has a blunt point which makes it safer to cut around people. I am a lefty and like the reversible clip. The blade material is very rust resistant, and a good choice around salt water.

Cons: None
Should be a great seat-belt cutter rescue knife
As per the headline, it should be great. Being 1/4 inch shorter might be best considering pocket dimensions so it would not be tight in a pocket bottom. But overall rating is very high, and it seems sturdy, is sharp, and I have no doubt it would whack right thru seat belts or other to aid a rescue. I've heard of crash victims hanging upside down in a wreck and the belts jammed and frozen. Police should have a knife like this for such events (firemen should probably have this at minimum, and if many events happen, perhaps find a heavier one, if one exists).
