Spyderco Stretch Partially Serrated Modified Drop Point Blade Folding Knife
Spyderco Stretch FRN Knife that features a 3 1/2" modified drop point blade made of VG10 stainless steel. The blade has a full flat grind, a large Spyderco hole for ambidextrous one hand opening (even with gloved hands), a notched thumb ramp, and a notched choil for secure grip. The black fiber reinforced nylon handle, 4 1/2" closed, has Bi-Directional texturing, a Boye Dent lockback and a lanyard hole. A side to side and end to end reversible metal pocket clip is included with this Spyderco Knife. The Spyderco Stretch FRN Knife has an overall length of 8" when open.
Drop Point Blade -
This blade has a gentle, sloping convex curve to the point versus the concave curve of the clip blade. Being thicker, this blade point is stronger for heavier tasks. It stands up to abuse well, but isn't as effective for easy penetration.
Serrated Blade -
A serrated blade has a cutting edge that has many small points of contact with the material being cut. By having less contact area than a smooth blade, the applied force at each point of contact is relatively greater and the points of contact are at a sharper angle to the material being cut.
VG-10 Stainless Steel -
VG-10 has Carbon (C) content between 0.95-1.05, Chromium (Cr) content between 13.0-15.0, Molybdenum (Mo) co ntent between 0.2-0.4, and contains less than 0.25 of Nickel (Ni). During forging, Mo and Cr forms hard double carbide bonds which help improve the abrasion and corrosion resistance of the steel. It has a hardness of 58-61.
Fiberglass Reinforced Nylon (FRN) -
A nylon polymer mixed with glass fiber that is then injected into a mold for making lightweight knife handles.
Tip Up and Tip Down -
Refers to which direction the folded knife if positioned by its pocket clip. When closed and clipped in a pocket, whichever direction (up or down) the blade's tip sits defines if it is termed tip up or tip down.
