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.

fantastic outdoor serrated knife
This thing is good sized but nice and slim in pocket. Also pretty darn light for it's size. The yellow handle makes it easy to spot if I put it down. Cuts rope with ease. Very handy in the kayak or on the boat or motorcycle. Makes quick work of reducing cardboard boxes to piles of small pieces. Also cuts open hard plastic packaging easily. It stays sharp for a very long time before needing a touch up on the ole Sharpmaker. Haven't used it around salt water yet but gas and oil don't affect it. I love this knife!

being grumpy wishing it was perfect
This is an ok knife for it's purpose. Wish a few things were different about it. Metal liners! Wish they were there. This knife seems to be a copy of an earlier Endura. Wish it was closer to Endura 4, which is to allow to switch the pocket clip for tip down carry and to have a different texture on the handle. Oh, and Spyderco, please please upgrade the back lock on Endura and cousins. Once this kind of lock was great. But it's no longer 1960s. I like the feel of Endura the best, but considering the metal liners and the lock, Benchmade H2O knives seem much stronger.
