What happens when you stretch something that’s already been stretched once? In the case of the Stretch 2, you get an “extra-large” expression of the same proven design—and a lot more.

The Stretch 2 XL Lightweight extends the Stretch 2’s overall length by eight percent, while packing 13 percent more blade length into its full-flat-ground VG-10 stainless steel blade. The blade’s straight spine tapers to an acute, utilitarian point and gives it the signature “modified clip point” profile of some of Spyderco’s most iconic models. A fully accessible Trademark Round Hole allows swift, reliable, one-handed opening with either hand. To allow enhanced control during precise cutting chores, the design includes a 50/50 choil (finger groove) that enables the user to “choke up,” gripping the knife closer to the blade. Both the choil and its opposing thumb ramp have strategically placed jimping (textured grooves) to ensure a secure purchase.

Despite its larger size, the Stretch 2 XL is actually 29 percent lighter than the Stretch 2 Lightweight—tipping the scale at a mere 2.7 ounces (77 grams). It achieves this amazing quality by dispensing with the stainless steel liners of its progenitor and using linerless construction. Its injection-molded FRN handle scales have a network of reinforced ribs on their interior surfaces to give them enhanced structural strength. The outer surfaces feature a Bi-Directional Texture pattern for a secure, non-slip grip in even the most demanding conditions. A sturdy lockback mechanism locks the blade securely when in use and a fully configurable four-position pocket clip provides a choice of left or right-side, tip-up or tip-down carry. These features, together with the knife’s completely symmetrical design, make all aspects of its carry and operation completely ambidextrous.

Offering extra-large-sized cutting performance in an ultra-lightweight package. The culmination of an evolutionary process that has spanned nearly four decades, this remarkable folding knife is in a class all its own.
