The Stretch 2 is a highly refined folding hunting knife and the latest generation in a lineage of cutting tools that has spanned more than three decades. Based on detailed feedback from countless hardcore outdoorsmen, Spyderco’s folding hunters have steadily evolved since the release of the original C03 Hunter™ in 1983. The Stretch 2 is a direct reflection of that real-world input and represents the pinnacle of the breed. The laminated full-flat-ground blades of these unique knives have a V-Toku2 tool steel core sandwiched between layers of SUS310 stainless steel. V-Toku2 is alloyed with tungsten, vanadium, and chromium and is renowned for its toughness at high hardness. The injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) handle and its ergonomics have been fine tuned to reduce fatigue during prolonged use. Its Bi-Directional Texturing™ guarantees a secure grip, even when wet, and is complemented by a deep index-finger choil (finger groove) for an enhanced purchase with a “choked up” grip. These refinements complement a four-position pocket clip, sturdy back lock mechanism, and fully accessible Trademark Round Hole™ to make the Stretch 2 fully ambidextrous and ready for the toughest challenges.
