Spyderco Pacific Salt Pocket Knife (Black, Serrated Edge)
With its vast amounts of salt and water, the ocean has destroyed countless knives with rust and ruin. But no knife can brave the elements of the sea like the Spyderco Pacific Salt.
The Pacific Salt is not only the ultimate diving knife but it is also perfectly designed for everyday carry.
Featuring a 3.812-inch blade with a straight edge, the knife is quick and versatile enough for nearly anything you encounter in your daily life or on the ocean floor.
But what really sets apart the knives in the Salt Series is the steel. Using 0.10% nitrogen to harden the steel instead of carbon, H1 steel will virtually never rust. However, unlike other corrosion-resistant steels, this one performs extremely well and retains an edge.
This version of the knife features a black textured FRN handle that's grippy and easy to hold while underwater or wearing a glove. Similarly, the trademarked round hole makes opening the knife easy in any condition. A reversible pocket clip lets the knife match your needs even better.
Although diving knives often feature a fixed blade, all the components on the Pacific Salt are impervious to salt water. Where other knives will fail and rust, this badass knife will continue performing.
|Blade Material||Stainless Steel (H1)|

Quick! List the most respected and innovative knife companies you can think of. If you know anything about knives, Spyderco is somewhere near the top. Spyderco Inc. makes some of the most unique and downright bizarre knife designs you'll see on the market, but from the number of passionate fans discussing, debating, and learning everything they can about Spyderco knives, it's clear that the company has done something right.
From the Glesser Family and the Spyderco Crew:
Since starting Spyderco we've been told our knives are different, peculiar, even out there. All true. Thinking beyond established knife industry barriers allowed us to introduce new and radical innovations to the knife culture including: One-hand opening, serrations on a folder and a clip to attach a knife to a pocket.
We didn't go into business to rake in a mountain of dough we're here for more selfish reasons- indulging our passion for creating knives. Spyderco is definitely out of the norm in the knife industry in our dedication to researching and developing fresh, improved and better performing materials all with function and reliability being key.
Someone once said to Sal Glesser, Spyderco's owner, "You must design in the dark because your knives look so strange." True again. Our recognizable appearance is a result of designing ergonomic functional tools rather than applying lipstick and nylons to a pocketknife. We may look curious, homely, whatever, but we'll never be called unusable or undependable.
Making knives that consistently deliver reliable high-performance requires an ongoing commitment to testing. In our million-dollar testing facility we examine edge retention with a CATRA machine, look for rust development with Q-FOG, check the force needed to open and close a knife. We also repeatedly test for stress, wear, optimal heat-treating and actively search for higher quality, performance enhancing steels and materials.
As a customer you probably don't think about this, or much care, but it allows us to put forth a promise. When you purchase a Spyderco you are buying a high-quality reliable cutting tool designed and manufactured for peak performance and ergonomic comfort. Those Who Know Carry Spyderco.
