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.

SPYDERCO C90PGRE STRETCH 3.5ZDP STEEL KNIFE
ThE ZDP 189 STEEL BLADE IS BEYOND WONDERFUL. IT WILL STAY SHARPPE 8 TO 9 TIMES LONGER THAN 440C . THREE TIMES LONGER THAN MY SV30 BLADES, NO FOOLIN. HOWEVER , BETWEEN THE SCHEMATIC DIAGRAM AND PRODUCTION ,THE LOCK ING MECHANISM COULD FAIL AND I COULD OFF A FINGER...IT APPEARS ONE SIDE OF THE LOCKING MECHANISM DOES NOT EXACTLY COMMIT ITSELF FOR MAXIMUM STRENGTH..
