The Spyderco Stretch 2 looks like a cross between the Delica and the Endura. Designed to be of use during everyday tasks.
The pocket knife is made in the Spyderco factory in Seki City, Japan. Here they know how to apply a grind so the knife is razor-sharp. You can easily open the pocket knife with one hand using the thumb hole. When opened the knife is locked by a solid backlock. To prevent unintentional unlocking it is enhanced with a Boye-dent. A small cut-out that prevents you from accidentally releasing the lock.
The handle is made from the well-known FRN. A light-weight type of plastic which is reinforced with glass fibres. Thanks to Spyderco's characteristic omnidirectional grip it will be rock-solid in your hand. This version of the Stretch 2 has a blade made from exceptional steel: ZDP-189 steel. This powder steel with a high carbon content (3%) has a hardness of at least 64 HRC. This is extremely hard. The blade also retains its sharpness well. The downside of this type of steel is that is a little more difficult to sharpen. However, if you do it right you are left with a razor-sharp knife.
