This Stretch 2 sprint run model features a laminated full-flat grind blade made with a V-Toku2 tool steel core, sandwiched between layers of SUS310 stainless steel. V-Toku2 tool steel is alloyed with tungsten, vanadium, and chromium for maximized high hardness toughness.
The Spyderco Stretch 2 delivers a lightweight hunting folder, with full skeletonized stainless steel liners, a stainless steel back spacer, textured FRN scales, and a tube lanyard hole. It has a V-Toku2/SUS310 steel blade, a stout back lock mechanism with a Boye Dent, and a versatile four-position hourglass clip.
The Spyderco Stretch started as a pet-project lockback knife design. Spyderco’s owner and chief designer Sal Glesser made it for his personal use, incorporating features he wanted. He wanted high performance blade steel with edge retention super-powers for outdoor cutting: things like wood, rope and anything encountered in the wild. It had to work equally well indoors on cardboard, mail and fingernails. He sized it so it wouldn’t scare non–knife people and made it look slick on the off chance he’d someday have to wear a suit.
