Same for me. I love both knives and would be hard to pick one over the other.
You can't lose with either one!

Congratulations on your choice, the Stretch VG10 is a great knife, for discreet carry and too small pants pockets I carry Delicas more than the Stretch.

Wise decision!
When the Delica first came out, I thought they were great, light, thin, etc, but that was in the integral clip days. The Stretch came along and is far superior, length, strength, etc.

Ditto, :) but for choosing just one for pocket carry, I'd probably hang on to the Delica FFG w/fol. green G10 scales

Just a marginal preference for size in pocket carry and dexterity in most small jobs

Can't deny the general awesomeness of the Stretch though, and would love one with a blade a fraction under 3 1/4" :)
