Spyderco Atlantic Salt Lightweight Folding Knife – FRN Handle with SpyderEdge, Hollow Grind, H-1 Steel Blade and Back Lock
Folding Survival Knife Product Features:
SALT SERIES – The Salt Series tackles rust through the groundbreaking use of nitrogen-based blade steels like H-1 and LC200N. The result is a diverse selection of knives that are incredibly resistant to corrosion.
FRN HANDLE – Fiberglass Reinforced Nylon is a polymer mixed with glass fiber then injection molded into formed and textured lightweight high-strength knife handles.
HOLLOW GRIND – It comes with bevels that are ground with a concave radius. The bevels may extend the full width of the blade (full hollow grind) or only a portion of its width.
SPYDEREDGE BLADE – Spyderco’s two-step serration patterns consisting of one large and two small serrations. The pattern increases the cutting edge’s surface area by up to 24%.
SPECIFICATIONS – Closed Length (Inches): 4.59, Overall Length (Inches): 8.27, Blade Length (Inches):3.68, Blade Steel: H-1, Grind: Hollow
A Bit About Spyderco
Spyderco was founded in 1976 by Sal and Gail Glesser. Initially, the company focused on selling our first product the Tri-Angle Sharpmaker primarily at fairs and trade shows around the country in their Bread Truck. In 1981, the Glessers put down roots in Golden, Colorado and introduced the first Spyderco folding knife. That knife pioneered the concept of a round hole in the blade for one-handed opening, a clip on the handle for carrying at the top of the pocket, and the option of a serrated edge for aggressive cutting performance. Those features revolutionized the knife industry and literally defined the form of the modern folding knife.
Other Knives can rust in peace
It’s been speculated the sheepfoot shaped blade originated with mariners who found the rounded tip especially beneficial when the knife was accidentally dropped (think working on a ship in pitching seas) as it couldn’t stab the foot when hitting the deck. It’s also been hypothesized that commanding officers on these ships preferred rambunctious hardworking sailors carry knives without pointed tips, especially while in port blowing off steam after months at sea. Spyderco’s Rescue knives are long favored by seafarers and the design has since been embraced by rescue workers, EMT’s and ranchers-anyone cutting around flesh in an emergency. The Atlantic Salt is a modified Rescue made with state-of-the-art, ultra-corrosion-resistant H-1 steel. The hollow-ground blade is available in SpyderEdge offering remarkable cutting performance in and around fresh and saltwater.
The molded FRN handle includes a shackle key and is available in black or bright yellow and features a reversible black-coated titanium pocket clip for tip-up carry on either the left or right side. We recommend threading a thong or lanyard cord through the lanyard hole for back-up retention around water, where once dropped, a knife is often irretrievable or lost.
