The Tasman Salt folder features a Hawkbill blade. This distinctive curved cutting tool has a claw-like tip that originated in the marine/commercial fishing industry. Cutting in and around water involves cutting line, netting and rope and it’s done quickly, often at arm’s length while pulling downward or toward you. The blade’s arcing tip holds what you’re cutting against the sharpened edge keeping it from slipping off the tip. Spyderco’s rustproof Hawkbill blade is made with state of the art non-rusting H-1 steel. H-1 is a precipitation-hardened steel containing nitrogen instead of carbon, which cannot rust. The serrated hollow-ground blade offers remarkable cutting performance in and around fresh and saltwater. The visible marine yellow fiberglass reinforced nylon (FRN) handle is texturedwith a Volcano Grip pattern. It’s equipped with a reversible left/right hand titanium pocket clip (also non-rusting) that positions the folder tip-up in the pocket. We recommend threading a thong or cord through the lanyard hole for back-up retention around water, where once dropped, a knife is often lost or irretrievable.

About the H-1 Stainless Steel in Salt Knives

A myth in the knife world is that there exists steel with high-performance cutting abilities that cannot rust. Many non-rusting blade steels make it to the market but they all sacrifi ce edge retention and cutting power. Myth becomes reality with the introduction of H-1 steel. H-1 is a precipitation-hardened alloy with .1% nitrogen that performs like carbon in the steel matrix but won’t react to chlorine, making rust. It holds a sharpened edge comparable to premium carbon-based knife steels. Independent testing by Crucible Steel Inc. shows H-1 work-hardens at the cutting edge when processed and sharpened, raising Rc hardness and durability. Simply put, H-1 is ideal for advanced cutting performance in and around fresh and saltwater. Internal knife components are also impervious to rust and pitting.
