The Stretch 2 is the result of a long evolutionary process that began in 1983 with the original C03 Hunter™ model. Spyderco’s first knife with a drop-point blade—a style preferred by many outdoorsmen for processing game—the basic Hunter design was refined over the years and spawned a number of other models, including the Stretch™. Now that evolution has gone a step further to yield the Stretch 2.
The Stretch 2 is a reflection of the feedback Spyderco gets from the many hardcore hunters who regularly use our knives in the field. Its new profile features a slightly longer handle for increased leverage, refined ergonomics to reduce fatigue during prolonged use, and a deeper index-finger choil for an enhanced purchase with a “choked up” grip. Collectively, these subtle changes improve the user’s control over the knife—especially when it is used to process game in harsh field conditions. For increased heft, the Stretch 2 features full skeletonized stainless steel liners, textured G-10 scales, and a four-position hourglass clip. Like all the predecessors in its lineage, it also features a high-strength back lock mechanism that locks the ultra-high-carbon ZDP-189 blade securely open during use and, along with its other features, makes operation of the knife completely ambidextrous.
The Stretch 2 is an extremely refined all-purpose folding knife that is ideally suited to the needs of hunters and outdoorsmen. It also reflects a proud lineage and one of the richest histories in the Spyderco product line.
