The Stretch is a medium to full size folder with a stylishly designed handle and blade. Solid ZDP189 steel blades will give months of use between sharpening. The Stretch’s textured blue FRN handles are lightweight and strong. The lockback system gives a very reliable lockup.
Here is Spyderco’s information about this knife:
C90PBLE Stretch Lightweight has a blue FRN handle and exotic Japanese ZDP-189 blade. The steel is manufactured using powdered metal technology and is one of the hardest, highest performing knife steels used in the knife industry today. 3% of its component composition is pure carbon making the steel harder with expansive edge retention.
