Salt I Black Knife -
A myth in the knife world is that, out there somewhere exists steel with high performance cutting abilities that cannot rust. A Japanese steel foundry recently turned this myth into reality with the introduction of a steel they call H1. H1 is a PH steel meaning it is a precipitation-processed alloy, that's rolled hard without heat treating and has .1% nitrogen which acts like carbon in the steel matrix, but does not react to chlorine making rust. Surprisingly, it holds a sharpened cutting edge comparable to the premium knife steels being used in the industry by most knife manufacturers.
One of Spyderco's top sellers is the Delica Model. Users gravitate to it due to its sensible size, versatile shape and tested durability. It makes complete sense to plug H1 into this model, so we did, with a couple modifications. Salt I has a more rounded tip that's a bit thicker at the point. Since H1 was developed specifically for use in and around water, rounding the tip better met the requirements of cutting chores associated with boating and fishing. The Spyderco Round Hole is increased in diameter to 14mm facilitating easier access for gloved or wet hands. All inside/outside steel components (lock bar, pins and clip) have been treated making them impervious to rust and pitting. Volcano Grip texturing covers both sides of the FRN handle for friction resistance to slipping. David Boye's locking lever dent is a standard feature that inhibits the lock from accidental release if the handle is gripped with great force. A matching black titanium pocket clip positions for left and right tip up portability. A hole running through the hollow clip screw makes a lanyard pipe for stringing thong or cord through when using around water.
Heat Treating -
Heating and cooling metal to prescribed temperature and the limits for the purpose of changing the properties and behavior of the metal.
Carbon (C) -
Increases edge retention and raises tensile strength. Increases hardness and improves resistance to wear and abrasion.
Round Hole™ -
Round hole located in the knife blade used for one hand opening and closing of a knife blade.
Volcano Grip -
Our trademarked name for the waffle texture found in our FRN handled lightweight knives. The continuous pattern of small squares offer better hand grip while cutting.
Fiberglass Reinforced Nylon (FRN) -
A nylon polymer mixed with glass fiber that is then injected into a mold for making lightweight knife handles.
David Boye Dent -
Custom knife maker David Boye removed a small arc or dent of metal from the lock bar lever of his knives. This removed piece lessened the possibility of gripping the handle hard enough to depress the lock and accidentally unlock the blade while using the knife.
Tip Up and Tip Down -
Refers to which direction the folded knife if positioned by its pocket clip. When closed and clipped in a pocket, whichever direction (up or down) the blade's tip sits defines if it is termed tip up or tip down.
Lanyard Hole -
This is a hole to fit a lanyard, rope or carrying implement through.

I own this knife if you are looking for a durable knife this is it. I wadefish in my spare time and the salt water has not put any rust or stains on it at all. Over a year of salt water and sand and still not a single stain. It has great edge holding. If you want a knife that will last this is it.
