Savvy outdoorsmen prefer knives that get the job done without having to stop for sharpening. For these discriminating end users, Spyderco supercharged our venerable Stretch 2 folding hunting knife with the unparalleled edge retention of a K390 tool steel blade. Its full-flat grind ensures outstanding edge geometry, and the high-traction Bi-Directional Texture pattern of its signature blue FRN handle guarantees a secure grip, even in cold, wet hands.

I bought this as a beater work knife for Fire/Ems. It seems that backlocks are just universally seen as non threatening. Just a nice smooth roll to open and a nicely easy close. I will say the stretch 2 is slightly larger than I expected, it’s size closely resembles the PM2. It came hair whirling sharp out of the box, and k390 just flys through material as is easily maintained with a strop with diamond compound.
If you haven’t bought from REC before, their packaging is phenomenal, and they send along stickers, a small microfiber and the knife box wrapped up in packing paper. As well as a personally addressed thank you note. This goes far above what I’ve revived elsewhere and I am choosing to make REC my go to dealer from here on on out. Thank guys. Oh and just buy the knife, she’s not much for looks, but she loves to work!
