    I cut a ton of cardboard with mine over Christmas and have quite a few scratches on it. One of them is pretty deep. Amazon cardboard is dirty stuff. I feel it adds character as well.

    Mine was Lowe's moving boxes. Very dirty stuff. Always nice getting those first few scratches on a knife because then it becomes yours and the babying stage ends.

    Yeah that sounds like something is not right. Mine will move slightly but not easily, I really have to try.

    Thanks! I honestly haven't carried the HAP40 Stretch much with the Stretch2 hogging my pocket.

    Does tha SE Stretch look familiar? ;)

    I carried a HAP 40 Stretch Friday. I like the knife. I think I'll like it more when the tooling is changed, but it's not a great difference. I'm with Darby in that the Stretch 2 gets a lot of carry time.

    I agree with you Sal. I like the stretch but I'm in love with hap40 and the Stretch 2 is a subtle but big improvement for my hand. Maybe one day. ;) Of course with all this chatter about a cutlery shoppe exclusive in hap40 my mind is full of all kinds of ideas.

    The elusive western Canadian Stretch captured in it's native environment.

    This thing is so freaking awesome! I love the stretch and hap40 is the sharpest knife I've got yet! Can't wait to throw this bad boy into the daily rotation!

    ^^^ Congrats dude! Sweet knife! I'm sure it will become very well acquainted with your pocket, Mine sure has!

    I think the HAP40 Stretch is gonna go down as one of the greats as far as Sprint runs go.

    That hap 40 is a very well balanced steel in these Spydercos.
