Based on the third-generation version of the popular Delica model, the Salt 1 combines weight-saving advantages of a one-piece fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) handle with the 100% rustproof qualities of H-1 steel to create a compact, all-purpose folding knife that is completely immune to the elements. This version of the Salt 1 adds a non-reflective titanium carbonitride (TiCN) coating to the blade and lock bar to make it ideal for use in environments where light discipline is a concern.
The Salt 1’s H-1 blade features a partial hollow grind that provides excellent edge geometry supported by a strong, full-thickness spine. It is available with either a Plain Edge or fully serrated Spyder Edge cutting edge and features a generous 14mm Trademark Round Hole to allow swift one-handed opening, even while wearing gloves. In the open position, the blade locks via a sturdy back lock mechanism, which includes a Boye Dent to help prevent unintentional release.
The injection-molded, one-piece FRN handle has a Volcano Grip texture pattern for a secure grip with wet hands. It is also home to a reversible titanium pocket clip that provides right or left-side tip-up carry and supports the knife’s fully ambidextrous character. All other metal components of the knife are also manufactured from 100% rustproof alloys.
