I have a spyderco from 25 years ago that I carried on water patrol (saltwater) for a couple of years, still looks great today. I do not know if they are still built the same way or with the same components today or not..

My wife gives me a quality knife for valentines day every year. The last one I got was the Spyderco Saltwater Knife. I do a lot of diving and carry it in my waist band when in the water. It is my back up knife while diving. I carry it everyday as well. IT WON'T RUST!!. It doesn't hold an edge as well as other spyderco or benchmade knives but its good enough. I give it 4.5 stars.

My spyderco Police Straight edge has been good to me for a LONG time...all stainless, but it requires cleaning, it will get little rust stains on the blade from time to time. They generally just wipe off.

If you aint carrying a #radknife then you aint $h!t

Spyderco H1.
Get it and be done with the search.
I recently lost mine and haven't replaced it yet just because I'm waiting for a good deal to come my way. But when I had it, I wore it every single time on the boat. Even when I went to the sandbar I would keep it in my pocket while sitting in the water all afternoon. I'd bring it home, rinse it in the kitchen sink, and that was it. Never an issue with rust.

They come in multiple blade shapes and sizes. The Salt 1 was what I had. Plain edge. I'm looking for that again or maybe the Dragonfly H1 plain edge.

I carry a Benchmade presidio auto, mini and regular size in cm 154 SS blade. I've had the mini for about 8+ years works flawlessly and holds a good edge. No need for a saltwater knife, use it all u want rise at the end of day. Everynow and then I spray it with wd40 no issues. I also have a salt spyderco knife in my safety box. Seems cheap compared to my benchmades.

All the steel on Salt series knives is H1 steel, blade and hardware. So no rust at all from the pins or clip. I just wish they used nice scales than the cheap FRN

Just figure out which Spyderco Salt series you like best and be done with it. I prefer the Spyderco Salt 1. I had it in black until I misplaced it. Now I have it in bright yellow so I will hopefully be less likely to lose it.

I agree...but then, my spyderco cost half what my benchmade did.

The Spyderco H1 knives are awesome. I have the pacific salt and have been using it for about 4-5 years on my boat, paddleboard, and even snorkeling. Sometimes I forgot to wash it off for several days. Not one bit of rust on it. Great knife.
