This version of the Pacific Salt from Spyderco features a Titanium CarboNitride (TiCN) coated fully serrated blade and backspring. Now approved for use by US Naval and Marine Corps aviation units (NSN issued) its black blade helps reduce reflection.
The Pacific Salt series features a 100% rust proof H-1 stainless steel blade, hollow ground and secured by a back lock. The handle is a volcano grip textured black FRN, with a Boye detent in the lock to help avoid accidental closure. Keeping with the rust proof theme of the line the clip is made from coated titanium and can be swapped over for left handed use.
About the Salt Series: Although originally developed for people who work in or around a salt water environment, the Salt knives from Spyderco also lend themselves well to users whose line of work may cause them to sweat. Composed of H-1 super stainless steel, these knives are 100% rust proof, while still maintaining their ability to hold a decent edge. We've seen tests where users leave these knives in some of the harshest conditions imaginable, and each time the blade comes back looking almost brand new.
