Description

The Pacific Salt knife from Spyderco is built specifically for those that spend time in and around water. It is equipped with a hollow-ground rust-free H-1 blade with a plain edge and black carbonitride finish. The handle is black FRN and the internal steel parts are treated making them impervious to rust and pitting. The Pacific knife is similar in size to Spyderco’s bestselling Endura model but with a more rounded tip.

First some cons: Ergonomics are a bit lacking, but fairly standard and feels alright. The cheap feeling/lightweight handle makes carrying very easy and disappears in the pocket. The large pocket clip that is probably going to get bent...but has held up thus far. I love the bigger blade size, quite uncharacteristic of most Spyderco knives. Unfortunately, the finish on said blade shows wear and tear, so be kind to this guy. The action is quite smooth and loose, which can be concerning for a lock back, but I like it and as long as you are mindful of where your fingers are, you will be fine. Because of this smoothness, in addition to the spydy hole, there are lots of ways to open this neat knife. With its prehistoric look, coupled with science fiction levels of corrosion resistance, the Pacific Salt is an awesome knife and I like it. 82/100

You can't beat this knife for what it is.... Super lightweight, extra sharp, and h1 steel so it won't rust. This thing has great ergo even with a pocket clip....it just disappears in the pocket.... I have mush smaller knives that feel heavier in the pocket. The lessoned tip is actually more useful than a point for me.... Like the title says, it's all gravy, baby!!!

Though this is a "bigger" knife, it fits in the pocket will, as well as in the hand. For an 8.6" knife, it only weighs 3 oz which is great. The action is a little sticky, but as it has been used it has loosened up. The anodized blade hasn't shown much wear through a good amount of use.

Now to the fun part, the steel. H1 is a very interesting steel as it uses a high N content, which has been suggested to increase corrosion resistance while aiding in performance (and so far has proven so). With a low C content, the high Cr and Ni content (much like 304SS) allows for the passive Cr2O3 layer to form; the low C content doesn't allow for carbide formation however, leading to poor edge retention. High Si and Mo also aids in performance of the steel. The corrosion resistance of this steel really is something else. It is my go to fishing knife and with a quick sharpen, gets whatever I need it to do done. But since I have a PM2 in S35VN, i rarely carry this knife because it requires constant sharpening.
I may have found my “forever” folder.

It has been said that the devil is in the details. Here are a few of the details I have noticed.

The tip of the knife has a slight downturn. I think it makes the blade look more interesting but more importantly, it makes the tip stronger, making it less likely to bend or break should you be rough on the blade tip.

The pocket clip. I don’t use pocket clips and usually remove them as they sometimes get caught with other things in my pocket such as key rings and also because the edges of the clip cause hot spots when working with the knife for extended periods. The pocket clip for this knife however will be staying on. The edges on this pocket clip have been rounded and feel incredibly smooth and comfortable in the hand.

I know, small details, but it speaks about a design that has been well thought out by someone who actually uses what they have made.

Blade action was a little tight at first, to be expected, but now opens and closes easily using either thumb or middle finger (Spyder Flick). Lock up is tight with no play side to side or up and down. Blade came very sharp with just some minor stroping need for two spots where the edge was rolled over. Very light, slim, and thin. You forget it’s in your pocket and it doesn’t “mark” making it inconspicuous and a great choice for every day carry.

Add its rustproof H1 blade and you have what just might be the perfect knife…at least for me.

Great job Spyderco.
My excellent beater

My first Spyderco of four. Easy to sharpen but dulls quicker than my others (S30V, CTS-XHP, ZDP189). I have also grown to prefer the full flat grind of my other knives. But I still use this knife quite a bit and it really never fails. It’s light, thin, and easy to carry. Easy to clean too as it won’t rust. It can stay damp without concern. Also, the rounded tip is actually helpful in prying situations when a sharp tip is risky to the knife or pried object. For me this is my preferred range bag knife and beater knife, just not my EDC.
