View Full Version : Spyderco Stretch
I’ve always liked looking at knives, and other than a custom knife that was given to me when I retired, I have always had freebies, and cheapies. I took possession of my first Spyderco yesterday. A Spyderco Stretch. Very nice knife. Clipped to my pants pocket, I can not even tell it is there unless I stick my hand in my pocket. A very sharp knife.
i have the blue one with the ZDP-189 steel :cool:
I wanted VG-10 steel with the black handle, and got just what I wanted. Iíll probably stick with black handles, and maybe a dark blue handle. All the wild colored handles make them look like they came from a M&Mís package, and canít be real knives, but thatís probably just me. I might adjust to the colors someday.
You can't go wrong with a Seki-produced Spyderco...congrats on your new toy!
Thanks. I think choosing the next one will be more difficult than choosing the Stretch was.
Very nice. I carried a Spyderco for years. I have retired it for a Cold Steel AK-47 but have been thinking about bringing it out of retirement.
Very clear pics you have there. I think I shall give my Spyderco some more carry time. Thanks for the idea.
Not familiar with Cold Steel, but just looked at their web page. Impressive. Yet another knife to look at. I donít know what the size comparison to the Stretch is, but here is a photo of how the Stretch fits in my hand.
Cold Steel has a division called Special Projects with a web site of WWW.LTSPECPRO.COM (http://www.LTSPECPRO.COM).
They offer a 10% discount to LEO, Military. Great folks to deal with. I own several Cold Steel knives and have been very pleased with them all.
My son is in the Marines. I bought him a Cold Steel Recon 1 Tanto Point to carry. Somehow he broke the tip off. I sent it back to Cold Steel and they replaced it at no charge. Their # is 1-800-255-4716 to order a free catalog and DVD. They have lots of toys that I think you will like. Have fun checking their catalog out.
Thanks for that link. I spent quite a bit of time looking at that site, and watched a bunch of video. The Ti-Lite looks like an interesting knife, but the video review showed some faults, but still a cool knife. Not sure I like the idea of knives that catch on your pants and open automatically like that, such as the Benchmade and Spyderco Wave blades. Also watched a Nutnfancy video on the AK-47, which is linked from the ltspecpro site. To him, the knife exceeds his personal weight limit of 4 oz, and the blade is too short for tactical purposes, but still thought it was a cool knife.. Iím starting to discover all these high grade knives that I really wasnít aware of before. I think I just came into a ďknife a monthĒ kind of mode, so Iím already trying to decide the next purchase for March. Another Spyderco? Benchmade? Microtech? Cold Steel? Iím sure Iím leaving some out.
You are welcome, my friend. I understand about discovering high quality knives. Been there, still enjoying that. Now I have discovered the fun world of high quality flashlights.
Enjoy and keep us posted on your purchases.
