Spyderco’s Stretch 2 XL Lightweight revolutionized the concept of the ultra-lean “magnum-sized” folding knife. For those who prefer a bit more heft, this expression of the Stretch 2 XL design swaps the original injection-molded handle for one constructed with precision-machined gray G-10 scales, full, skeletonized stainless steel liners, and a stout stainless steel backspacer. Equally unique, the full-flat-ground blade of this knife is crafted from CPM CRU-WEAR—a specially formulated air-hardening tool steel enhanced by the Crucible Particle Metallurgy (CPM) process that offers superior wear resistance, excellent toughness, and an ultra-fine, extremely homogeneous grain structure. The PlainEdge™ blade of this knife is full-flat ground and satin finished for low-friction cutting performance and proudly features a fully accessible Trademark Round Hole™ for swift one-handed opening with either hand. A four-position clip enhances the knife’s ambidextrous theme by offering a choice of left or right-side, tip-up or tip-down carry.
