Description
SP90PGRE: C90PGRE Stretch Green FRN ZDP-189
Spyderco
 
Spyderco is one of only a handful of production knife companies producing Japanese ZDP-189 steel blades. Because of its high cost and chart topping cutting quotient, most companies offer ZDP-189 blades only on collectible or very high-end pieces. Spyderco believes using high performance exotic steels on a working everyday carry knife makes more sense. If you use and abuse it, why not own a lightweight, ergonomic folder with the best blade steel available?

Japanese ZDP-189 steel is manufactured by Hitachi using powdered metal technology. 3% of its component composition is pure carbon making the blade harder and one of the most edge retentive alloys in the knife industry. The Stretch has a modified drop-point profile, ground thin and fully-flat with an arced belly. Its British Racing Green injection molded FRN (fiberglass reinforced nylon) handle is surfaced with Bi-Directional Texturing?. When the texturing meets the palm, it creates tactile resistance to sliding or slipping in wet or slippery cutting circumstances.

Steel pocket clip screws into pre-drilled holes on both sides and both ends of the knife for four possible carry options: left/right-handed and tip-up or tip-down.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, None
Cons: Overall Quality, Handle Material
Great blade, poor construction
The blade and ergonomics are phenomenal. However, from reading other reviews about issues with the lockback, I decided to roll the dice and purchase one anyway. I did not experience any issues with the lockback as far as I can tell but the scales overlapped the liner at the top where the blade pivots. This caused the blade to rub severely on the on the zytel scales instead of smoothly opening. Again, this is a great knife. It just has some construction issues.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Pocket Clip, Weight, Blade Material
Cons: None
Great knife
This is a good EDC knife: lightweight, great steel that will hold an edge for a long time, just the right size. The tip is strong and the grind fine enough for slicing. The lockback is not as convenient as a liner-lock or an axis lock but once you get used to it, you can close the knife with one hand. I really recommend this knife!
