Another happy Spyderco user. I have several Spyderco Salt folding knives and a few Spyderco fixed blade knives made with H1 steel blades. My Tasman Salt is one of my EDC knives, lightweight and the hooked serrated blade is an awesome cutter.
"H1 is a precipitation-hardened steel containing nitrogen instead of carbon, which cannot rust."
The only Salt knife I ever saw with surface (only) stains had been left in a tub of chlorine tablets. It cleaned up nicely. H1 is a work hardening steel so a serrated edge is perfect for this steel.
