It's been speculated the sheepfoot
shaped blade originated with mariners who found the rounded tip especially
beneficial when the knife was accidentally dropped (think working on a ship in
pitching seas) as it couldn't stab the foot when hitting the deck. It's also
been hypothesized that commanding officers on these ships preferred
rambunctious hardworking sailors carry knives without pointed tips, especially
while in port blowing off steam after months at sea.
Spyderco's Rescue knives are long
favored by seafarers and the design has since been embraced by rescue workers,
DMT's and medics cutting around flesh in an emergency. The Atlantic Salt is a
modified Rescue knife made with state of the art non-rusting H1 steel. H1 is a
precipitation-hardened steel containing nitrogen instead of carbon, which
cannot rust. The hollow-ground blade is available PlainEdged orSpyderEdged with
both configurations offering remarkable cutting performance in and around fresh
and saltwater. Textured with a Volcano Grip pattern, the molded fiberglass
reinforced nylon (FRN) handle comes in black or visible marine yellow equipped
with a reversible titanium pocket clip for right or left- handed use. We
recommend threading a lanyard cord through the lanyard hole for back-up
retention in and around the water and for attaching to your bell jacket. The
sat divers knife of choice!
