Edge length exactly like Endura/ Pac Salt...
Interesting thought. I also am waiting for the Native Chief... but I probably won't enjoy the blocky Native style handles as much as I do the Stretch. Hmmmm.
I was thinking the same thing. I have been looking forward to the Native Chief LW thinking the Stretch XL would be too large. It does not appear that will be the case at all. This is a great size!
Definitely worth trying out! If you have ever handled the LC200N Pac Salt. It is crazy how light it feels.
No need to speculate on pricing, $112.35 at BladeHQ. I have to say, that's less than I was expecting. And certainly less than I'm expecting the Chief FRN to go for.
Well not the handle just the balance in hand for the weight. I was concerned about the lack of liners some time ago, but had the chance to handle one and I like it! I am more and more interested in linerless FRN handles.Wandering_About wrote: ↑Tue Jan 11, 2022 2:30 pm

And in case anyone wondered what the SE looks like:
I've always preferred the Stretch to Endura when it comes to handle shapes, but there's no rust proof Stretch. If they make this XL version a Salt someday I might not even keep a Pacific in my rotation any more.Wandering_About wrote: ↑Tue Jan 11, 2022 2:30 pm
