the pacific salt is the knife that brought me back to spyderco after over 30 years of other brands. i bought it because i was moving to hawaii and wanted a knife i could carry in the ocean. the pacific seemed like a natural choice. it also reminded me of a grown up version of my first pocket knife ever, which was of course a spyderco ladybug.
the pacific salt proved to be a gateway drug for me and i have acquired a handful of other spyderco knives in the last few years since returning to the brand. however, as cool as they all are, the spyderedge pacific salt is the one always on me, whether i'm in the water, hiking in the rainforest, working out, walking around town, or even lounging at home. it's the one spyderco i can't go without.
as i sit on the beach here today and think about moving from this beautiful island in less than a week, i think about how dependable and great this knife has been and how it's transformed my preferences and ideas about what a good folder should be. i couldn't have asked for a more perfect knife for living on an island in the middle of the pacific. i will miss this place, but i'll always have my "hawaii knife" to remember the good times and beauty here.
seriously... if you don't have one, you need one.
