Spyderco Atlantic Salt FRN

Spyderco Atlantic Salt Black FRN

The rumour is that the sheepfoot shaped blade originated with mariners who found the rounded tip especially beneficial when a sailor accidentally dropped the knife as it couldn't stab the foot when hitting the deck.

Seafarers have long favoured Spyderco's Rescue knives, and rescue workers and EMTs have embraced the design for cutting around flesh in an emergency. The Atlantic Salt is a modified Rescue made with state-of-the-art, ultra-corrosion-resistant H-1 steel.

The hollow-ground blade is available in SpyderEdge, offering remarkable cutting performance in and around fresh and saltwater. The moulded FRN handle includes a shackle key, is available in black or bright yellow, and features a reversible black-coated titanium pocket clip for tip-up carry on either the left or right side.

Spyderco recommends threading a thong or lanyard cord through the lanyard hole for backup retention around water, where once dropped, a knife is often irretrievable or lost.
