The Atlantic Salt is a great rescue knife that is designed for seafarers, rescue workers, EMT's, ranchers and anyone cutting around flesh in an emergency. This rustproof version of Spyderco's Atlantic Salt is a modified Rescue made with state of the art non-rusting H1* steel. H1 is a precipitation-hardened steel containing nitrogen instead of carbon, which cannot rust. The hollow-ground blade offers remarkable cutting performance in and around fresh and saltwater. The textured black fiberglass reinforced nylon (FRN) handle features Volcano Grip and includes a lanyard hole. Comes with a reversible titanium pocket clip for right or left- handed use.

*This Spyderco Salt model is currently transitioning from H1 steel to H2.
I've had this knife for about 5 years. I love the knife, it never rusts! It is a little wide in the pocket but still doable. The serrations cut like a champ through almost anything. I occasionally touch it up on my Sharp Maker and it is good to go. The fit and finish are great as well as the ergonomics, the H1 steel is easy enough to sharpen but dulls easier than LC200N.
