Time tested and a favorite among savvy mariners, the Spyderco Atlantic Salt is an exceptional knife on land while being even better in marine environments thanks to the corrosion proof construction, integral shackle key and blunt tip Sheepsfoot blade with 50/50 choil. Exceptionally lightweight and corrosion resistant linerless construction is paired with CQI Titanium Carbo-Nitride (TiCN) coated hardware and back lock bar and a full flat grind blade for even better performance. The newest iteration of the Atlantic Salt 2 comes with an FFG LC200N stainless steel blade and Key Lime Green FRN handles. This version comes with a plain cutting edge.
Brand new, direct from Spyderco.
Blade: Fully flat ground for general slicing utility, the satin finished LC200N stainless steel blade is all but impervious to corrosion, perfect for salt water or highly corrosive environments, while offering improved edge retention over H1.

LC200N: LC200N is a high nitrogen, alloyed tool steel produced using PESR (pressurized electro-slag remelting) technology delivering a pure alloy with fine micro-structure. This steel has been used in knives for some time and even longer by NASA for ball bearings. LC200N offers excellent corrosion resistance, toughness and ease of sharpening with edge retention better than other steels with comparable qualities. Maximum working hardness in 60-62HRC range. Also sold as Cronidur 30 or Z-FiNit (Zapp Fine Grain Nitrogen steel).
