If you don't know, look into the lock mechanism. It was designed to be serviced without talking apart the knife. It's a really clever design.The Meat man wrote: ↑Fri May 03, 2019 8:18 pm
That's what I would've thought. I was curious because with the Autonomy there are a lot more internals to consider than the other Salt knives.

In the pamphlet that came with my autonomy 2 it says to rinse with fresh water after being used in and around salt water and dry and lubricate. Which to me makes it seem like it's designed to be used in that capacity.

I would definitely rinse the autonomy too because debris could get in the knife and mechanism. I don't think they make a rust impervious spring set up yet. So that's probably the part that would be the most problematic.
The spring module has holes in it and I could see sand and debris possibly getting in there. Saltwater evaporating and leaving salt deposits is possible and would be bad. So it's definitely not an unlined FRN handle with very few steel parts.
