When we have a model that is well designed and well made, but doesn't sell well, We have to study the market reaction to know what's happening. The Stretch is another example. Possibilities include, handle material, handle color, steel, country of origin, choils, etc.
Thanks for the insight, Sal! I understand.
"The market" sure is weird in some cases. And yes, the Stretch for me is the most puzzling example for that: Such a perfect design, but still not the biggest seller seemingly.
When it comes to the Polestar: My amateurish guess would be that some people look down on the steel and first and foremost link "linerlock" to "cheap" or "outdated", while imho a good linerlock is percfectly fine and even has some distinct advantages over other lock types.
I personally hope the amazing looking textured G10 will not disappear.
For all who might not be aware of this very pretty knife with its neutral, roomy handle, here the depiction from the Spyderco-page:
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40
