Spyderco Salt 1 Pocket Knife

Our Spyderco Salt H1 knives just arrived. I placed my order with Knife Center last Friday, it was shipped out on Weds and I got them today in Singapore. You've got to love Fedex.

What is it? The Spyderco Salt series of knives are meant for marine use. They use some high tech Japanese steel that substitutes Nitrogen instead of the Carbon in the Steel. Whatever. The bottom line is that the knives don't rust and I bought a couple for our upcoming river and dive trips.

The price per knife was USD$54.95 per knife (which is the best deal going for this blade). The Knife Center just raised the price this week to USD$58.95. Well, the knife normally retails for USD$92 at places like REI, so this is still a good deal.

You gotta love mail order...
