    There ya go Mate.

    The Stretch is not a heavy knife, but Caly is the lighter of the two.
    I like the deep carry clip on the Caly.

    You won’t be disappointed with either.

    Also, as you can see Caly is much better looking

    That is arguable.

    I think the Stretch is more comfortable in use.

    I have a Caly 3.5 and was thinking about buying a stretch until I saw this post...now I'm thinking, no need to step down to the stretch. CALY 3.5 RULES!

    i thought they would be about even I've been carrying my cf stretch lately but my super acid sweat causes the ZDP to rust in a matter of hrs. Not to mention at work when i start sweating it's usually an 11hr event. The cutting edge is pretty much identical. It looks like my finger might hang off the caly or i might have to use the choil to get a full grip of course the stretch kinda cramps my hand up. Wish they made it like 1/2" longer or so. XL stretch would be my dream knife. Looks like the ZDP caly is going to be mine soon. Thanks again for the comparison
