One of Spyderco's top sellers is the Delica Model. Users gravitate to it due to its sensible size, versatile shape and tested durability. It makes complete sense to plug the non-corroding H1 steel into this model. The Salt I has a more rounded tip that's a bit thicker at the point. Since H1 was developed specifically for use in and around water, rounding the tip better met the requirements of cutting chores associated with boating and fishing. The Spyderco Round Hole is increased in diameter to 14mm facilitating easier access for gloved or wet hands. All inside/outside steel components (lock bar, pins and clip) have been treated making them impervious to rust and pitting. Volcano Grip texturing covers both sides of the FRN handle for friction-resistance to slipping. David Boye's locking lever dent is a standard feature that inhibits the lock from accidental release if the handle is gripped with great force. A matching black titanium pocket clip positions for left or right hand tip-up portability. A hole running through the hollow clip screw makes a lanyard pipe for stringing thong or cord through when using around water.

Saltwater Diver Approved

I was initially skeptical about the "rust-proof" designation. I'm a professional diver and spend ~15 hours a week underwater in the Gulf of Mexico, and I'd given up on finding a non-titanium bladed knife that would hold an edge after being exposed to 35ppt water for extended periods of time. I can report that after about 2 months of continued exposure, the H1 steel has supported it's rust-proof hype, and also holds a superior cutting edge. I've used it to cut lines, ratchet straps, dispatch fish, scrape biofouling and turn the occasional flat-headed bolt underwater. I highly recommend Spyderco's H1 knives for saltwater applications.

This is one of my most carried knives, especially in the summer when every ounce counts. This is basically a Delica 3 with H1 steel that will never rust. I know that this advertised as a salt water knife bu this thing excels in many other areas. To me this makes a perfect EDC and hiking folder. You wont even realized that it is clipped to your pocket. Spyderco hit a home run with this one.
