I noticed that and just bought one in HAP40 how is the steel? Seems like a good Steel from what I read and I have already become Stretch2 Fan. Sure I will Love the Stretch 1 also.
I´d be VERY interested in your thoughts and impressions when you get the Stretch 1! Maybe you´d care to report back, I´d appreciate that!
Concerning HAP 40: There is a recent thread ("ZDP vs HAP40") containing good information.
I only have an Endura in HAP 40 right now, absolutely love it!! Other than that I have only knifes in "lesser" steels (cheaper, that is, like S30V, VG 10 and so on)
With HAP 40 I really notice the better edge holding, while it is not hard to keep sharp for me just on a regular sharpmaker (fine/medium) and a strop.
I also like the unique looks of the laminate lines.
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40
