I've been eyeing up a Salt 1 PE for a while now, finally pulled the trigger on one here the other day. Just recieved it today and it is an impressive knife. For the last month or so I've been EDCing a Kershaw OD-1. I've cut out the liner on it so that it weighs in at 3oz, not much, but you still notice it there. The Salt 1 weighs in at 1.9oz on my scale, which is very light, you really don't notice it there at all. The handle is linerless FRN with volcano grip molded in. The blade is a sheepfoot style blade with a high hollow grind on it. The lack of a point doesn't seem to be an issue with the thinner blade, it cuts really nice right up to the tip. Fit and finish were excellant and lock up is solid with no play in any direction. The handle is very comfortable and fits my larger hand well. I really like the larger then average Spydie hole, it fits the arc of my thumb perfectly and opens better then any of my other Spydies except my Lava. My only knock on the whole design is the pocket clip, it seems it's bent poorly and really takes effort to clip onto my pocket, also it comes with the ugly black coating Spyderco is so fond of putting on. You'll notice in my pic that mine is now missing this.
