Folding Knife: EDC, Tactical, Utility
Spyderco Tasman Salt 2, H1 Stainless Steel, Serrated
Spyderco was founded in 1976 by Sal and Gail Glesser. In 1981, the Glessers put down roots in Golden, Colorado and introduced the first Spyderco folding knife. That knife pioneered the concept of a round hole in the blade for one-handed opening, a clip on the handle for carry at the top of the pocket, and the option of a serrated edge for aggressive cutting performance. Those features revolutionized the knife industry and literally defined the form of the modern folding knife. Spyderco has steadily grown to become one of the leaders in the cutlery industry. In addition to a worldwide distribution network and manufacturing resources in the U.S., Japan, Taiwan, Italy, and China, Spyderco innovation has also earned them an impressive portfolio of patents, trademarks, and industry awards. More importantly, it has allowed Spyderco to earn the trust and loyalty of countless thousands of dedicated knife users around the world.
The Salt 1 folding knife was a revolutionary pocket-sized cutting tool that combined the 100% rustproof properties of nitrogen-based H-1 steel with the high-performance features and benefits of Spyderco's third-generation Delica design. Although it earned an extremely devoted following, in some ways it was outpaced by some of the design improvements that make the Spyderco Delica 4 design even better. Consistent with Spyderco’s obsession with Constant Quality Improvement (C.Q.I.), they decided to revamp the design to create the Salt 2. It combines all the salient features of the best-in-class Delica 4 Lightweight model with the extraordinary corrosion resistance of H-1 steel. These include enhanced ergonomics, a high-traction Bi-Directional Texturing pattern on the handle, and a black-coated titanium pocket clip that supports left or right-side, tip-up or tip-down carry. Unlike the Delica 4, which uses stainless steel liners in the handle, the Salt 2's handle components are molded from solid fiberglass-reinforced nylon (FRN) and fitted with four sets of threaded stainless-steel inserts to mount the four-position clip. All other metal hardware on the Salt 2 is also machined from special non-rusting alloys.
