Spyderco Assist Salt H-2 Knife Yellow FRN (3.69" Satin Serr) C79PSYL


  • H2 steel serrated sheepsfoot blade.
  • Thumb hole opener.
  • High-visibility yellow FRN handle.
  • Lock back lock mechanism.
  • Reversible, ambidextrous wire pocket clip.


The Assist Salt, like the Rescue Assist has a handful of features. Its patented blunt-tipped blade is eighty-percent SpyderEdged for aggressively cutting seat belts and fibrous material. The last inch of the tip Spyderco left PlainEdge for detailed cutting (think sharpening pencils). The wavy pattern cut from the top of the blade (created by a fireman from Sweden) and along the inside of the handle let you place a piece of rope (between the half-open blade and handle) and scissor the blade shut- especially convenient for cutting rope in-and-around flesh without having to fully open/expose the knife's blade. In the closed position, squeeze the blade deeper into the handle and a retractable carbide tip protrudes out from the base for breaking glass. Outlined in the handle's spine is a shrill and attention-pitched survival whistle. Carries left/right handed, tip-up by means of a tension wire clip.

Customer Reviews

Rust free
Andrew H. on Oct 13, 2018

Two years in pretty wet and humid conditions. Not a spot of rust anywhere. Serrations are typically spyderco amazing - cutting rope is like slicing through butter. Great knife.

Hello all. As a professional sailor on work boats from offshore supply vessels in the oil field to working hopper dredges up and down the east coast, this knife is truly a 5 star must have for a serious workboat mariner. The blade locks solid, and is sharp as hell. One night on watch I was clearing a drag head with small line wrapped around the teeth, using the "scissor" method to cut the line being in a tight spot made quick work of it compared to most knives. Notice this knife is not called "yacht master" or "collectors series". This knife is a tool for Mariners who actually appreciate the functions of this blade over the appearance. Thank you.
