Black Pacific Salt 2 - Is that a Black Polymer or a DLC Lockback?

Just got a black Pacific Salt 2 C91SBK; serrated edge and is perfect for yard work. Mine is a satin finish but came with a black lockback; is it polymer or black DCL? I can't really tell.

Either way I am very happy with the knife.

Just curious more than anything.

I Like My HAP40 Delica - Seems to take a beating

It's one thing to read the specs on the steel, but it's another when you use it. I was using my HAP40 Delica to cut fasteners for vinyl siding that was badly faded (lots of them). I also had to cut some of the new fasteners short so they would fit in the masonry. It still has a pretty good edge. Tha...

Re: Ideal Spyderco Knives For Lawn, Garden & Landscaping Jobs?

A Salt model might be good - but - I don't find landscaping as corrosive as marine use. I think the Salt is for the fishing tackle.

I fought the serrated edge thing for years, just didn't want to fool with sharpening one, I was just flat out wrong, should have bought this knife years ago!
Yes - same here!!

Spyderco Knives You Want to See Back in Regular Production

PITS, Caly, Domino, and Dice. Some great designs that I wish could have stayed. I have my PITS in my pocket now. I'm not a knife market subject matter expert; just know what I like.

Re: Ideal Spyderco Knives For Lawn, Garden & Landscaping Jobs?

I just grab either a Native LW, Delica or an Endura. This is one instance where I wish I has a SE knife, I don't. I guess a Native LW SE would be perfect.

Re: Which Lil Native?

I am more interested which of the two models are easiest to operate (and hot spots). Both types of locks are strong enough for my needs.

Compression lock 100 percent. I've carried one almost every day since they were first released a couple years ago. The compression lock has the most varieties available and also has more custom scale options.
Thanks. I know you are a proponent of the Lil Native so I am glad I got your feedback.

Which Lil Native?

Compression lock or back lock? I assume the back lock is thinner?

Re: Your Thoughts of an Ideal Companion Blade?

I would say a serrated edge companion. There are times when I have to cut cord or rope and that would be handy.

Re: Super happy with my New Mantra 2

So the picture of the M2 might lead you to believe it's a bigger knife. Even so, I think the M2 is a good (even optimal) size for pocket carry. The handle length is about the same as a Delica, but the blade more slender and a bit longer. More of a slicer for sure. I love the looks of a titanium ston...

Thanks for the tip; I just ordered one. And I still have my Chaparral. Actually, I would also like a Chaparral light weight eventually.
