Spyderco SALT Mariner
Spyderco Knives Mariner SALT with H1 Stainless Steel Blade
Spyderco had a Mariner model in its lineup for many years but discontinued it several years ago. This new incarnation is slightly smaller and has a narrower blade, but it does its heritage proud. The fully serrated sheepsfoot blade will cut about anything it has to and in a hurry. The shackle key groove is still there and the steel is now the H1 stainless steel which, in Spyderco’s estimation, will not rust! It still holds and takes a good edge.
