Eric's long term plan is to make a Salt version of most popular models.
Just saw this...that's awesome. Looking forward to it...each time I think "Spyderco can't improve on this..." and then Spyderco improves on it. The Rock Jumper feels great in the hand and is smooth as butter. I'm looking forward to the Salts. And I would guess that maybe we won't have to wait as long since LC200N is now in Japan.
I hope my beloved SE wharnie Delica is one of those “most popular models” Sal
I can imagine it would be a bit of a logistical nightmare to make everything in a Salt variant, and who knows if the rest of the casual knife using world will even care, but I've said it before I will likely buy a SE Salt version of all my favorite models especially if they're done in FFG/LC200N.
I love the salt models because...
1. Rust Proof in H1 & Highly Rust Resistant in LC200N (I say this because I’m not certain LC200N is at same levl as H1)
2. Lighter weight than same model with liners
3. Grip is very slightly thicker than lined model which gives a better grip (for me)
4. Simplicity! (Less parts, less to go wrong)
I’ve said all this before...for a folder and what tasks they mostly do, for me, the salt (linerless) design is superior in every way. I know there are others who agree and I’m sure we are the minority, but I sometimes wonder what the ratio of people who prefer liners is to those who prefer linerless (and salts in particular).
Just rambling on a Sunday afternoon...
