C258 Stretch 2 XL

"The Stretch 2 XL Lightweight is the newest member of a proud lineage of cutting tools that has spanned more than three decades. The earliest knives in this family were optimized for hunters and outdoor enthusiasts, but later evolved to become true all-purpose tools. Inspired by its progenitor, the Stretch 2, the XL version extends the design’s overall length by eight percent, while packing 13 percent more blade length into its straight-spined, full-flat-ground VG-10 stainless steel blade. Despite its larger size, its linerless fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) handle actually reduces its weight by 29 percent compared to the Stretch 2, which has stainless steel liners. Its injection-molded handle features Bi-Directional Texturing for a positive grip, a fully configurable four-position pocket clip, and a sturdy back lock mechanism. Offering XL-sized performance in a package weighing a scant 2.7 ounces (77 grams), this knife sets a new standard in lightweight, everyday carry cutting tools.""[1]
