Myth becomes reality with the Spyderco Pacific Salt rust-free knife. Conventional wisdom used to be that a knife with a powerful edge will rust. That’s because steels that don’t rust are usually unable to hold a cutting edge for any measurable amount of time. The Pacific Salt puts conventional wisdom to rest with the introduction of a steel called H1. The Japanese foundry that makes H1 uses 0.1 percent nitrogen instead of carbon to harden the steel, helping it reach a Rockwell hardness level of 57 to 58 RC. The result is an austenitic steel that doesn’t require heat treatment, gets harder and tougher with use, and is absolutely impervious to rust.
This version of the Pacific Salt comes with a black-coated blade, lessening the steel’s reflective qualities and subduing the blade’s presence. Hollow-ground, the H1 blade is PlainEdge and coated in a long-lasting black carbonitride. It’s similar in shape and size to Spyderco’s best selling Endura model but with a more rounded tip for increased strength. The knife also includes a large 14mm round hole that makes one-handed opening easier even with gloved or wet hands. And the blade provides a secure, reliable blade lockup thanks to David Boye’s specially designed locking lever dent.
All other steel components of the Pacific Salt have also been specially treated to make them impervious to rust and pitting. Textured in a Volcano Grip pattern, the black fiberglass handle has a grippy texture to ensure a slip-free grip. Finally, the Pacific Salt includes a reversible black titanium pocket clip that supports left- or right-side tip-up carry, along with a lanyard hole that keeps the knife safe around water.
