Product Description

H1 is a PH steel meaning it is precipitation-processed alloy, that's rolled hard without heat treating and has .1% nitrogen which acts like carbon in the steel matrix, but does not react to chlorine making rust. Surprisingly, it holds a sharpened cutting edge comparable to the premium knife steels being used in the industry by most knife manufacturers.

I purchased this knife simply because I wanted to own a Spyderco, due to their reputation as good knives. I bought it intending for it to be part of my small knife collection, and use it only occasionally. I now carry it 7 days a week.

It it quite large--and that surprised me when I got it. Blade length is approximately 3 3/4", and the handle is 4 7/8". Over time, however, I got used to carrying it in my pocket, and I actually like the large grip because of the purchase my hand gets on it, and the leverage I can put on whatever I'm cutting. Despite its size, it is very lightweight. This is due to the synthetic handle and minimal use of metal where not necessary, as well as using titanium for the pocket clip.

Before I owned this knife, my EDC (Everyday Carry) knife alternated between the Kershaw Ken Onion Leek Folding Knife with Speed Safe and the Case Cutlery 024 Case TrapperLock Pocket Knife with Chrome Vanadium Blade Amber Bone. The Leek had long been my favorite EDC, and I will still carry the Leek where I need to be more discreet.

Using the thumb hole and traditional locking back on the Spyderco was different at first, as all my previous carry knives had thumb studs and liner locks. After getting use to this style, I do not have a marked preference for either style. I will say that one-handed operation when closing the blade is much easier with the liner locks--one handed operation is possible but not preferable with this Spyderco. One-handed opening is easy with this knife, even in gloves.

I am ROUGH on this knife.

Shipping via USPS took a few days longer than I originally planned but the wait was well worth it. I simply love this knife and in my opinion it will make an excellent EDC blade because it is light weight and feels very strong in my hands, the lack of a liner does not affect the strength of the knife on a noticeable level at all as far as I am concerned. The jimping gives for great control when precise cutting is needed and the point seems strong enough for intense cutting, I live on the island of Trinidad in the Caribbean so the rust resistance is an added bonus because I am always around salt water, I have heard complaints about the 1 ("one") that is engraved on the blade (H1) showing some rust but thus far I have not had this problem, possibly because every time I get back from the ocean I wash off the knife in fresh water and wipe some WD40 on the blade itself. I have had no problems conditioning the blade with a ceramic sharpener and the clip is very strong but I still always use a lanyard when by the ocean as I do not want to drop this knife. I will definitely buy this knife again and I will definitely recommend this knife both as an EDC and for anyone that works around the ocean.

Update: 14/12/2012 Been using as my EDC for a while now both in and around salt water, no rust at all. My only problem is that it's not the easiest knife to sharpen in the field in my opinion. Other than that I still love the knife and will purchase H1 again.

I've packed a Spyderco knife around for at least 15 years (the old school FRN clip Endura was my first "real" knife back in the day...). I've carried the second and third generation Spydies as of late and prefer this version to the third gen Delica with stainless steel liners and the new pocket clip.

The H-1 steel workhardens as you use it, so use and sharpen often and it will get better with age. Right out of the box I'd say it's very similar to the old AUS-8 Spydies in terms of edge retention and tooth. It's not as slick and polished when resharpened as the VG-10 Spydies, but for my uses it's just fine. I prefer the toothiness, actually.

Along the H-1 blade, this version gets you the old style clip (much tougher in my experience than the new pocket clip that attaches with three screws) in titanium, a larger opening hole for those of us with sausage fingers, and the jimping on the blade near the opening hole.

It's light, thin, and sharp. It won't rust no matter how poorly you treat it. It's nearly the perfect Spyderco.

I read all of the reviews before purchasing, and I'll try not to repeat any of the info. I'm a scuba diver who has two very different set-ups for diving. One is for deep/longer dives, where I have a large fixed blade attached to my leg. But when I only use the minimum for short/shallow dives (very small tank, no wetsuit) or when I free dive, I thought that this knife would be perfect. And also for kayaking and kayak diving. I was a little worried that if attacked by a shark, the tip design wouldn't allow for effective stabbing... but trying it on cardboard proved me wrong. It's no Ti-Lite when it comes to stabbing, but it's adequate. It's my first Spyderco knife, and I figured that if I liked it, I'd buy another of harder steel that would get wicked sharp and hold an edge for EDC (maybe the Police model?). Having the Salt for a few days, I decided that it's just fine for EDC, so I'm not in a hurry to get anything else. When I'm on private property, I like to use the pocket clip. With it, the knife is extremely light, flat, and comfortable. But out in public, where I live, it's illegal to have any part of the knife showing... so it must be completely inside my pocket, which is a little uncomfortable because it always wants to turn horizontal. Life would sure be good if cops could do a better job of sorting out the good and bad guys so that we wouldn't have to suffer for the evils that others do-- but that's a different subject. NOW THE FUN PART! Many YouTube reviews mention that the Salt comes razor sharp... so right out of the box, I stropped it. While stropping one side, I noticed strop dust on the blade... so I got suspicious that there was a bur on the other side. Checking with my fingernail verified that there was one.Read more ›
