The latest evolution in Spyderco’s time-tested family of folding hunting knives, the Stretch 2 Lightweight is the result of decades of refinement based on detailed feedback from countless hardcore outdoorsmen. This elite version of the design pushes its performance envelope even further with a blade crafted from ultra-high-carbon ZDP-189 steel—a particle metallurgy tool steel with an advanced alloy composition that offers an exceptionally keen and long-wearing edge.
The Stretch 2 Lightweight’s highly evolved drop-point blade profile is ideal for all field-dressing tasks. It features a full-flat grind and a breathtakingly sharp PlainEdge™ cutting edge for low-friction cutting performance. A textured index-finger choil (finger groove) and matching thumb ramp also allow a “choked up” grip for enhanced control during precision cutting tasks.
Injection molded from tough fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) and sporting the distinctive British Racing Green color associated with this elite steel, the Stretch 2’s extended handle provides increased leverage and comfort. Its finely tuned ergonomics reduce fatigue during prolonged use and a deep Bi-Directional Texturing™ pattern ensures a secure grip in even the most challenging conditions. The other time-tested features of the design—including a four-position pocket clip, high-strength back lock mechanism, and fully accessible Trademark Round Hole™—make carry, deployment, and use of the Stretch 2 fully ambidextrous. The ideal game processing tool for discriminating hunters, the Stretch 2 is also perfectly suited for everyday utility use.
