SP90PGRE: C90PGRE Stretch Green FRN ZDP-189
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.

Great knife
Spyderco stretch was my first Spyderco, I have one with carbon fiber handles, and I used to carry it all the time and used it for everything, It never failed me. Now it's semi-retired and replaced with Spyderco Military.

Excellent EDC!!
I have owned and carried this knife for two years now, and it is an excellent EDC knife for cutting and slicing. The lock up is strong, no issues like mentioned in some reviews here. The ZDP blade takes a mirror polished bevel. ZDP is my favorite steel because it keeps on cutting, and some people say it is hard to sharpen but I think it is easier to sharpen than S-30v, and the ZDP takes a shiny edge when finished on an 8k grit whetstone, unlike my para 2, which I still love. Last, I want to mention the quality of the blade geometry. The stretch has a thin full flat ground blade that does not feel flimsy. I believe this is one of spyderco's best knives for slicing and cutting
