    Sold my user ZDP stretch for not much money here several months ago. No idea why. Good knife with amazing steel.

    Between the discontinuation and the Black Friday deals I had to snag a backup! Started modifying my user last night!

    i have never owned or even handled a stretch or stretch 2. Would the vtoku2 stretch be a stretch or stretch2. Im thinking about selling my gb1 and getting one. they seem like they'd be similar.

    I believe the vtoku2 is the new pattern for a Stretch. When I first started in collecting Spydercos, I purchased the Stretch as this was Sal's favorite at the time his baby so to speak. In all I had 4 frn and two of the CF. What's really nice is its thin in the pocket, yet it will do the work you need to do. If I had a house fire and only time enough to grab one knife out of lets say over a hundred, this one would be my first pick. If you like the gb1 for its thicker grip then keep the gb otherwise the Stretch is a little more discreet and lighter weight.

    Dude that looks awesome! I had a similar thought, make it into a Worker-esque blade. Killer man!

    Sounds like you’re a fan.
    :)
    I really don’t need my folders to be heavy duty/over build/hard use. They live a pretty easy life. I really like my gb1. I doubt I’d actually sell it. Plus they’re such a bargain. One of the nicest knives around for what you pay. It is a little bit of a brick tho.
    Just the perfect storm of curiosity about the steel and the model. Stretch2 in vtoku2 seems like a must have right now.
    Do you prefer the stretch 1 or 2?

    I only have Stretch 1 models as I was happy with them, so I never changed up :D I believe the choil is a wee bit deeper on the 2 which is a nice addition.
    I really like the frn Stretch for edc as it is molded nicely for the hand. I only carry the Carbon fiber for special occasions. :p

    Well thanks for the info.
    I’m pretty sure I’ll try one.
    Pretty sure I’ll keep my Bradley too.

    I just decided to pick up a Stretch 2 today too. I got the green FRN version with the ZDP-189 steel. Ebay has a 15% off coupon (PERFECTGAME) so I scored it for $116 shipped.

    You should keep the Gayle Bradley; a beastly gentleman's knife!

    Comparison shot below, upper one is the V-Toku 2 Stretch 2 version
    Lower knife is the the ZDP-189 Stretch 1 version

    Thanks man! I'm really diggin' it so far! I did the same thing to my HAP40 model a while back and really liked it so I figured I'd try it on the Stretch 2. Next up is the deep carry clip, followed by a slight modification to the handle!
