Yet another quality addition to Spyderco's non-rusting Salt Series knife line, the C118 Saver Salt. The blades found on all Salt Series models are made with an alloy called H-1. H-1 is non-rusting premium-performance steel that's raising interest all over the fishing, boating and diving industries. Why? Because it nitrogen based steel cuts for an extended length of time before needing sharpening and it can't rust.
Saver Salt's rounded Sheepfoot blade has been embraced by sailors and rescue workers alike for safely cutting near flesh in emergency situations. No pointed tip means no accidental puncturing of skin or inflatable watercraft. The blade is flat-saber-ground for cutting excellence in and out of water.
The oversized 14mm Spyderco Round Hole works great for opening and closing even if hands are gloved, cold, or wet. The marine yellow, fiberglass reinforced, nylon resin handle is textured with a grip-sticking waffle pattern. An ambidextrous tip-up pocket clip also houses a lanyard hole for a variety of carry possibilities.

- Great knife Review by Eastbay
Low profile and very sharp. I've tried a lot of sailing knives and this beats all. Best for emergency or quick cut situations.

- Well done knife Review by Scooter
Very easy to open - cuts superbly and NO corrosion! Like the yellow scales for visibility and the non-skid grip is amazing.
