Spyderco Pacific Salt FRN Yellow

Spyderco Pacific Salt FRN Yellow

A big myth in the knife world is that a knife that seriously cuts but cannot rust is out there somewhere. Welcome to H1.

H1 steel is a PH steel, meaning it is precipitation-hardened steel. Utilizing .1% nitrogen instead of carbon to harden the steel, it reaches a Rockwell hardness of 57-58rc. Spyderco uses H1 on its C91 Pacific Salt model.

Similar in shape and size to Spyderco's best-selling Endura model but with a slightly more rounded tip, the Pacific Salt internal steel parts are treated, making them practically impervious to rust, pitting, and of course, salt. The blade's hole is enlarged to 14mm for more effortless opening/closing with gloved, wet or cold hands.

Textured with 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
