Spyderco Rock Salt
The Rock Salt is an amazing knife. First of all, it was designed by one of the most creative designers anywhere, Ed Schempp. It has a Kuhkri style blade with a great handle. The steel they used for the blade is the H1 which has been tested again and again for rust resistance, and the folks at Spyderco cannot get it to rust! On top of that, it holds a great edge. You can use this knife in any environment.
Here is Spyderco’s description:

The Rant steel has been upgraded and the handles are slightly modified, but the prices have stayed pretty flat. The upgraded steel (to 440C) is probably the biggest plus. The sheaths are still the great leather wrap-around style. Here are some SPECS:
