    More H1 knives... Please.

    I love H1, as I can essentially treat it like a redheaded step child, and not really worry about maintenance for a while, but I'd like a straight blade in H1 that doesn't have a sheepsfoot blade. I know there is the Dragonfly, but I like longer blades. Ideas? I personally was thinking maybe a Tenacious with H1 or a Persistence in it. Hell maybe even a Military.

    A pacific salt size in drop point would be a real winner in my good. Would make for a great fishing and hunting folder.

    Oh yeah. An Endura in H1 with an Emerson opener? Mmmm.
    I need fresh pants.

    The Salt1 is a Delica 3 with a modified blade. The Pacific Salt is the Endura 3 version.

    The lack of comparable modern folders is mainly due to the complexity of making a 100% rustproof high performing knife. H1 has it's grinding quirks (no FFG) and screws/liners currently can corrode.

    But all those parts can be made of H1. I like the Endura 4 design better then the 3.

    From what I understand it's also. Cost thing. all H1 liners would be expensive. However in my mind worth it hopefully it would stay ariund $100

    And just check this for me, please: H1 Steel/Stainless gets its main anti corrosion properties from the high NITROGEN CONTENT in the steel matrix, correct? And, it is an AUSTENSITIC as opposed to MARTENSITIC steel?

    There was an in depth thread recently that was started at Sals request where we discussed quite a few ideas for a new salt knife. If anyone is interested, here is the link.

    It might dilute the message of the line, but I wouldn't mind a knife with an H1 blade and the standard steel liners, as it's usually the blade and not the liners that rust on me. Maybe it would be ok if it was kept to sprints.

    I would love a Stretch2 as is but with an H1 blade.

    I like the design too. Not sure if those parts can be made with h1 or it would be financially viable compared to other rust-proof materials.
