Spyderco’s original Aqua Salt was an amazingly versatile, do-everything fixed-blade knife that was also incredibly corrosion resistant. Its legions of die-hard fans ranged from commercial fishermen all the way to military special operations personnel and they were all devastated when it was discontinued. Based on popular demand, the Aqua Salt is now back and better than ever thanks to the addition of a non-reflective titanium carbonitride (TiCN) blade coating. Like the original, it features a broad, hollow-ground blade crafted from H-1® steel—an extraordinary nitrogen-based alloy that is exceptionally tough and ultra corrosion resistant. The blade’s deep hollow grind, drop-point profile, and full-thickness spine provide a superior combination of low-friction cutting performance, point utility, and structural strength.
The handle of the Aqua Salt is made of durable fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) and is injection molded directly onto the substantial tang for strength. The handle’s Bi-Directional Texturing™ pattern provides a slip-free grip and ensures superior control, even with wet hands. To protect the knife when not in use and allow it to be conveniently carried, the Aqua Salt includes a matching injection-molded polymer sheath with a multi-position G-Clip™ attachment that supports belt or waistband carry. The sheath’s grommeted construction also allows it to be easily lashed or flex-tied to personal equipment. Available with a PlainEdge™ or fully serrated SpyderEdge™ cutting edge, the Aqua Salt is a truly exceptional cutting tool that is now optimized for tactical applications.
The title says it all. This is a solid knife for work above or below the waves. The size is right and the blade geometry perfect for its purpose.
