Spyderco Atlantic Salt

It was once said on here by a member that the Spyderco Atlantic Salt wasn't a rescue knife
Why ? Its got a rounded tip
One handed opening that can be done with thick gloves on
A serrated blade that is very agressive and will cut through a wide range of meterials
A bright coloured handle so it can be spotted if dropped or grabbed easily if needed quickly
A pocket clip for ease of carry
Its light , very light for a knife of its size and goes unnoticed in clothing until needed
Plus it has the added bonus of it dosen't rust .
Heres what Spyderco says about it .....
Spyderco's Rescue knives are long favored by seafarers and the design has since been embraced by rescue workers, EMT's and ranchers-anyone cutting around flesh in an emergency. Now available in a rustproof version, the Atlantic Salt is a modified Rescue made with state of the art non-rusting H1 steel.
I carried one for years on a rescue boat and now as HM Coastguard Rescue Officer .
They are a serious knife and shouldn't be overlooked !
