My younger brother graduated from high school this past week and so I figured I would get him a new knife as a graduation gift. He plans to go on to college and study marine mechanics and underwater welding. I had a feeling that the Salt series would be an ideal choice for him given his interests. Several months ago, I had shown him my Salt I and he was very intrigued with the rustproof qualities of H1 steel. He had asked me, “Do they make anything bigger than that?” I had told him about the Pacific Salt and he said, “Oh man, that would be perfect.” Bearing this in mind, I decided to get him the Pacific Salt black-on-black. Judging from his enthusiastic reaction when I gave it to him, I'm thinking he likes it.
