C90GFBLPD: Spyderco Stretch Damascus Folding Knife w/ Blue Nishijin Handles
Spyderco Knives

The Spyderco Stretch has changed over the years much like watching one of your kids grow up. What started as a small basic Hunter model in the 1980s matured/stretched into an elegant high performance drop point folder available in a variety of handle materials and blade steels.

This version of the Stretch features blue Nishijin glass fiber handles. The name Nishijin references a specific weave pattern, used in the production of silk Kimono cloth. It is manufactured by weaving glass fibers (thinner than a human hair), together in a geometric pattern and then impregnating the fibers into polymer base. The outcome is a lightweight, ultra-strong handle material that has an attractive three dimension appearance.

The blade is a unique VG-10 Damascus steel with fifteen laminated layers of erosive and non-erosive material over a VG-10 core center that come together in a Suminagashi pattern. The erosive layers are hard martensite stainless steel and the non-erosive layers are anti-corrosion nonferrous metal. These layers block carbon particles in the core from spreading to the outer layers. After layering the blade is forged to intentionally distort the layer-lines making a complicated, artistically beautiful pattern called Suminagashi. Suminagashi is a traditional Japanese art form of ripples of Chinese ink on the surface of water. This steel mimics the artistic pattern with interesting results on a knife blade. Once the layers are distorted, the blade is bathed in acid, etching a vivid relief pattern.
