I have to say, the PM2 has surprised me very positively: Actually thought I would not like it too much, but in fact I really do.
Still, for me the Endela wins in that size category.
Great, that Spyderco really has something for everyone!!

I do over the Stretch 2, I do not over the Stretch 1... (though I have to say: Since I got the Endela, I carried and used it a lot more than even one of my Stretch 1s.)
Thanks! Definitely looking forward to an endela (hopefully) in the k390 run, as it'll be a steel and a model I've yet to try, and both sound very promising.Wartstein wrote: ↑Tue Sep 10, 2019 9:34 amJuPaul wrote: ↑Tue Sep 10, 2019 9:22 amThanks, guys! Those pics are really helpful. I actually really like the blade size of the pm2, I just don't have many pockets that will fit it completely, which irks me to no end. As for the Stretch, I actually have one, and I've been on the fence about keeping it. There's not any one thing I can point to that I really dislike, but it just doesn't sing to me like a delica does...maybe it's just too bulky-feeling for my taste. I'd see if the endela filled the size slot any better for me.
I think it maybe will... pretty much Stretch 2 (two) size in length (both handle and blade), but sure less "bulky".
Stretch 1 (one) could be for you either ... shorter when closed than the Stretch 2, while actually having noticeable more edge...

SE Endela / Blade Thickness = 0.118 with a 3.41 Blade Length / 2.99 Cutting Edge
Stretch 1 Blade Thickness = 0.13 = 0.012 difference compared to Endela also has 3.5 Blade Length / Cutting Edge 3.19
Stretch 2 Blade Thickness = 0.12 = 0.002 difference compared to Endela also has a Blade Length of 3.45 / Cutting Edge 2.97
Paramilitary 2 Blade Thickness = 0.14 = 0.022 difference compared to Endela also has a Blade Length of 3.44 / Cutting Edge 3.0
Taking everything into consideration including the OP’s feelings for the Stretch1 and not recalling if he has one or not I recommend that he purchase a SE Stretch1 and see if the kicks the SE Endela out of the pocket.
Owning 2 SE Stretch1 I can say it is a wicked Slicing Machine I liked so much I purchased a backup.

I chose no interest at all, as I have and enjoy the Delica and Endura. That said, if I didn't have either and saw all three at the same time, I would have likely chosen the Endela first. It is my preferred size for pretty much everything.
It is not that I would be opposed to trying it out now, or in different steel and color option. It's just that I am a lot more selective about which knives I buy these days.
