The Salt 2 combines all the salient features of the best-in-class Delica 4 Lightweight model with the addition of extraordinary corrosion resistance of H-1 steel. Ergonomics have been enhanced, with 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 moulded from solid fibreglass-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.
This version of the Salt 2 features a high-visibility yellow handle and a fully serrated SpyderEdge™ cutting edge.
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 our 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.
