    Stretch Super Blue release soon?

    I'm still in the hunt for a blade with super blue steel but in a knife I don't already own. I've been meaning to pick up a stretch so why not kill two birds with one stone?

    Anyway, anybody know when it might be released. I swear I remember reading something but I'm unable to find the thread. Hmm...maybe it was on blade forums.

    Nothing? No news and no interest?

    Mine has been on preorder for 3 months or so, but what can you do besides wait.

    I almost bought a SuperBlue D4/E4 pair a few days ago (I've handled both, and gifted 2 Delicas in past, but never bought either for myself), but I left with a CF Caly 3.5 instead. One of my cousins has been carrying a Stretch (Black FRN) for at least 5 years), and I've held it and decided it would be my choice for FRN Spyderco, and the Dragonfly, though I don't have a FRN Dragonfly yet. I just prefer the ergos of the Stretch to the Delica or Endura.

    It would seem you are not alone in your preference. Every review I've watched on YouTube has nothing but great things to say about the Stretch. It is definitely on my must have list. The Super Blue is icing on the cake. Mmmm..cake.

    I love the stretch and have the combo edge that I carry everywhere! Just pre-ordered a stretch super blue sprint from knifecenter! Time to pull the trigger on this one if you love the stretch! You should also get the racing green zdp-189 stretch! That's also a beautiful knife!

    Has anyone confirmed if this will be full sb or the laminated blade similar to the recent delica/endura? I know the 2014 cat. has sparked some questions.

    From the pictures in the catalog it looks like straight superblue!

    I already asked that question in the Calendar Discussion thread...most people thought laminated, but it does look like straight SuperBlue in the photos. No official confirmation either way yet that I've seen, and I'm still curious.

    I have wanted a Stretch for a while now, I wanted one in a color other than black or green though. I hope I can pick one of these up.
