A basic version just to test out the reception of a Stretch XL will not be in FRN cause the molds would be to expensive to make for just a "test" I think.cycleguy wrote: ↑Sun Dec 08, 2019 8:32 amStretch and PM2 are my big folders. Have handled the police, military, endura, and chief but haven't gone with any of these longer/bigger folders. I'll have to wait and see if a stretched Stretch would get me there. I think a basic version to kick-off would be best, but would give it a small twist for interest and to set it apart from other big folder offerings ... FRN and S35VN would probably do it.
Yes, we are talking about straight spine version.
I'd probably buy one for the collection as well, but to be honest i am not very keen on 4" or over knives.The Deacon wrote: ↑Sun Dec 08, 2019 9:07 amIf Sal thinks it will sell, the by all means Spyderco should make it.
That said, I'd be more interested in a Stretch 2, either straight spine or regular, with an extra 1/4" of blade than an even larger version of the Stretch. Either would be legal to carry where I live but I'm fairly certain that a version with a 4" blade would not be able to fit in the bottom of my back pocket since the Police and Calypso don't. Still, I'd buy one for the collection.
That´s be great... but again, I think the handle of the current Stretch 2 (regular and straight spine) is "XL enough" and perfect for almost any, even the largest hand size.
Hmm, yeah, I remember photos of Stretch that there is still some space left in the handle....we have to wait what Sal bring to the market, but I am sure it will be a good knife. Maybe he is going to mod the handle just a bit, who knows.Wartstein wrote: ↑Wed Dec 25, 2019 2:14 amThat´s be great... but again, I think the handle of the current Stretch 2 (regular and straight spine) is "XL enough" and perfect for almost any, even the largest hand size.
THAT handle with a blade as long as it could be when filling all of the handle when closed plus the shorter choil of the SS Stretch would be perfect for me personally already... (remark: The SS Stretch 2 indeed has a shorter choil in the blade portion than the "regular" Stretch 2, and by that more actual cutting edge!)
What if it was thicker and contoured like the frn D’Allara was. That is something I would like to see more of.
