Pros: Handle Material, Blade Material, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None

Simply awesome!

This knife is amazing. Razor sharp. The ZDP-189 is like a laser beam. Sharpest knife I've ever seen straight from the box. The ergonomics are stellar. Big handle with the forward choir for precise use. The FRN handle is light, strong and very grippy. This knife is not one to snap open, but it is smooth and has no movement when open. Can you tell I'm impressed??!!

Cons: None

My new favorite EDC

I thought that this was just a slightly larger Delica. No. They say it is a folding hunter in the description, but it is more than that. It puts up with hard use, and remains comfortable and sharp. The liners under the FRN give it a solid feel and I would use it for any knife task. It is a good EDC for me, slacks and a tie people maybe not. I thought the Native 5 was the most under appreciated Spydie, this joins the list.

されどZDP189

ZDP189は粉末冶金技術により製造する新しいタイプの刃物鋼です。 均一微細なミクロ組織を有し、粗大炭化物を含まないため、刃付性が良好です。また、66~68HRCの高硬度、高耐摩耗性が得られ、耐食性も良好のため、切れ味が良く、刃持ちも優れています。ただその硬度の故 ひどく無理な使い方をすれば折れる可能性は有ります。普通に使っている分には心配有りませんが。デメリットとしては研ぎ直しが時間が掛かる事 ガラス繊維強化ナイロン(FRN)のブリティッシュレーシンググリーンのハンドルは薄い金属のライナーが入っています。 また握りやすくどんな握り方にも対応できるように思われます。 ロックバックは信頼できますがとてもスムーズとまでは、箱だしでは言えません。ワンハンドオープン、クローズもちろん可能です。 ポケットクリップは4ヶ所付け替え可能。ランヤードホール有り。
ZDP 189 is a new type of cutting steel manufactured by powder metallurgy technology. It has a uniform fine microstructure and does not contain coarse carbides, so it has good cutting ability. It also has high hardness and high abrasion resistance of 66 to 68 HRC and good corrosion resistance, so it has a good sharpness and excellent blade edging. There is a possibility that it will break if it is just unreasonable to use due to its hardness. I am not worried about what I normally use. As a disadvantage sharpening takes time Brittish racing green handle of glass fiber reinforced nylon (FRN) contains thin metal liner. It seems easy to grasp so that it can respond to any kind of hand grip. I can trust lockback but it can not be said to be a box sushi until very smooth. One hand open, closed Of course it is possible. Pocket clip can be changed in 4 places. There is a lanyard hole.

Great EDC that is lightweight yet still very effective

Great EDC knife for me, at least on weekends (I don't carry it to the office). When not at work it's always with me. This has mostly replaced my Spyderco ParaMil. It took a few days to get used to the smaller, lighter Stretch but now after four months of carry the Para feels a bit heavy to me. The biggest difference was the Stretch clips point down which took some significant getting used to. Once I did, I don't really notice. I still think point up is the better choice for me but I've adapted. Only complaint is that like most of my Spyderco knives the clip screws loosened which I noticed yesterday after I'd lost one of the three screws. I had this same issue with at least three other Spyderco knives so not an issue with the Stretch specifically, something I wish Spyderco would get right from the factory though.
