People carrying six-inch-plus long fixed blades is something you don't witness daily but situations and cutting needs do arise where big blades are the best (or only) tool suited for the job at hand.

Rock Salt's blade is 6-3/4" (171mm) long designed for outdoor use, camp cutting, slicing, chopping and food preparation. Spyderco and knifemaker Ed Schempp focused attention on making this large knife lightweight and user responsive. Made from a solid billet of H-1 non-rusting nitrogen infused steel, the full tang blade is Khukuri-shaped with a hollow-grind and sizable weight-reducing spine swedge. Inside the handle, the blade is skeletonized, shaving away ounces and balancing handle-to-blade weight ratio so although substantially sized, the knife balances like a dancer with a curved wrist to tip angle. 

The FRN handle scales are Bi-Directionally Textured and grip the skin both coming and going.  There are two lanyard holes:  Blade lanyard is a smaller Spyderco Round Hole and allows a short thong through the tang keeping hand choked up high on the handle while swinging and chopping. Back handle lanyard accommodates a longer wrist thong and is elongated accepting a flat strap or thong. Jimping forward of the blade lanyard hole and inside the choil keeps the whole thing grippy in even smaller hands. Injection molded Fiberglass reinforced nylon (FRN) sheath with multi-position FRN G-Clip.
