Spyderco's rescue knives have long been popular with EMT's, rescue workers and anyone else that has to work around flesh in an emergence. Many speculate that the sheepfoot shaped blade originated with mariners who especially liked the rounded tip so that if the blade were dropped, the tip wouldn't stab a foot when it hit the deck. Others say that it was the commanders that preferred their sailors to have knives without tips so when they were in port blowing off months of steam there would fewer problems. The Atlantic Salt is built with H1 steel. This non rusting steel has nitrogen instead of carbon and cannot rust. The C89SBK features a SpyderEdge (fully serrated) blade and gives you incredible cutting performance. Especially favored for jobs near water, the Atlantic Salt features the Volcan Grip FRN handle. This fiberglass reinforced nylon handle is light and durable. The grip makes it nearly slip free even in wet or slippery conditions. The Atlantic Salt manual folder knife also comes with a reversible (right or left) titanium pocket clip with a lanyard hole for backup retention.
