i live in hawaii and carry a pacific salt se every day in my waistband. i started carrying it as a backup and in case i find myself at the beach. it’s always in my waistband when i am in the ocean, pool, or when i work out. i only ever rinse it when sand gets in the pivot at the beach. i’ve never had an issue with it. i’ve had it for two years now and haven’t even had to sharpen it. granted, i don’t use the blade too often because i usually use whatever other pe blade i’m carrying as my main edc, but i use it occasionally. it could probably stand to be touched up, but it still cuts fine.
i have a friend with a pe and a se pacific salt and he loves them both. lc200n should have better edge retention in pe though and i’m really looking forward to the native salt for that reason. i’d love to have a spydiechef if i could afford it though.
