Spyderco’s second-generation Tasman Salt 2 is a powerful fusion of a hawkbill blade profile, ultra-corrosion-resistant H-1 blade steel, and an enhanced, injection-molded handle design. The result is an incredibly capable pocket-sized cutting tool that is ideal for anyone who works in or around the water. The radically curved hawkbill blade of the Tasman 2 literally “collects” the material it cuts, drawing it into the concave edge like an animal’s claw.
This dynamic generates extreme cutting power, especially on fibrous, hard-to-cut materials like netting, line, webbing, and rope. The Tasman Salt 2’s high-performance blade is housed in an improved handle design based on Spyderco’s best-selling Delica 4. Injection molded from tough, ultra-lightweight fiberglass-reinforced nylon, it features improved ergonomics, a non-slip Bi-Directional Texturing pattern, and a series of threaded stainless steel anchors for a versatile four-position titanium pocket clip.
The handle is also home to a stout back lock mechanism that locks the blade securely open during use. A true pocket powerhouse, the Tasman Salt 2 sets a new standard in mariner’s cutting tools.
