Designed by Spyderco founder Sal Glesser the Stretch 2 evolved from a purpose built folding hunter to an all-purpose daily carry companion. The Stretch 2 XL scales up the overall length of this popular back lock folder by a scant 8% while packing 13% more blade and reducing the weight by a full ounce thanks to a linerless construction. With a great blade to weight ratio this performance driven design is sure to be a winner. This version comes with a fully serrated, Spyderedge satin VG10 blade and black FRN handles.
Brand new, direct from Spyderco.
Blade: The satin finished VG10 stainless steel comes in a full flat ground, straight spine profile that slices like a razor with an aggressive fully serrated cutting edge that makes short work of tough, fibrous materials. An increase in length from the original delivers nearly 3.5 inches of cutting edge to handle tasks large and small. Jimping on the 50/50 choil and thumb ramp allow for optimal control during use while the Round Hole delivers fast, easy, and ambidextrous one hand opening.
Handle: Durable, weather resistant Fiberglass Reinforced Nylon or FRN delivers optimal traction thanks to bidirectional texturing while contoured edges provide a comfortable grip during extended use. The linerless construction reduces the weight by 29 percent compared to standard Stretch despite a larger overall size. The ambidextrous mid-back lock mechanism is time tested providing secure lockup during use with a Boye Dent for added safety under pressure.
Carries via a 4-Position stainless steel pocket clip.
VG10: Japanese Takefu VG10 is a high-carbon stainless steel that takes a fine edge and holds it well. Often hardened to 60-61 HRC in high-end kitchen knives, edge retention and toughness are on par with 440C with better corrosion resistance. A solid choice for small pocket knives, an acute, high polished edge delivers optimal slicing performance.
