This is the second Spyderco Stretch 2 I've owned. The new, more conventional Spyderco blade shape makes this a competitor to the Para3 Lightweight...with a solid conventional clip. The ivory scales is a classic look that I didn't think I'd warm up to...but it works like a charm. I added an MXG deep cary TI clip, and it's a solid EDC knife. (I've bought and sold 3 Para3 Lightweights, really wanted them to be keepers. But I don't work well with the wire pocket clips. I've dropped them on the floor twice in public places...not the impression I want to make, plus the risk of losing them.) This new improved Stretch makes the clip a non-issue by comparison.
