Description

A highly anticipated addition to the Spyderco Salt family, the Caribbean family of folders are purpose built for serious use in salt water environments. LC200N was chosen for its corrosion inhibiting properties and enhanced cutting performance over H1. The Caribbean Salt Sheepfoot SpyderEdge features an open construction with an easy to operate Compression Lock frame work and milled and polished layered Yellow and Black G10 for high visibility and a secure grip even in aquatic environs. 

The Blade: The Sheepfoot blade is perfect for those working in the field of emergency rescue as well as in the vicinity of inflatable water craft, where a sharp point is a serious hazard. The blade has a high satin finish, full flat grind, with a fully serrated SpyderEdge that allows for optimal and aggressive slicing performance especially on rope or other fibrous materials. The blade is made of LC200N, a nitrogen based steel that provides an exceptional blend of toughness, edge holding, and corrosion resistance. See more below.

The Handle: The handles of the Caribbean Salt are built on a skeletonized stainless steel liner frame work. The liners are nested into the layered G10 handles and one liner forms the unique Compression Lock mechanism that is rock solid and easy to operate. The scales are made from Yellow and Black layered G10 with a milled texture for grip as well as an eye-catching striped coloration. The Caribbean carries via an ambidextrous (tip-up) titanium hour-glass pocket clip. All hardware of on this knife is also titanium for corrosion resistance and strength.

LC200N a high nitrogen alloyed tool steel that offers extreme corrosion resistance. This extraordinary material is produced by a combination of the PESR (Pressurized Electric Slag Remelting) process and “smart forging” technology for exceptional purity and a very fine and homogeneous micro structure. LC200N is widely used in the food, chemical, recycling, and pharmaceutical industries, as well as in mirror-polished dies used in the plastics industry. It is best known, however, as NASA’s preferred material for the ball bearings used in their high-performance aerospace equipment.
