3V Pendleton Mini Hunter, Hunting Knife with CPM 3V steel blade and DLC-coating
Cold Steel®'s President Lynn C. Thompson bought the first knife that custom maker Lloyd Pendleton ever made in 1973. The two went on to be fast friends, and together they collaborated on some of Cold Steel®'s most popular and critically acclaimed hunting knives, the Pendleton Series.
The Pendleton Mini Hunter was designed with one goal in mind: to pare down a functional hunting knife to the smallest size that practicality would allow. Despite its diminutive size and unassuming appearance, this excellent hunting knife is capable of skinning, dressing and processing even large game. The Mini Hunter is an indispensable tool that makes a perfect addition to any hunting pack or survival kit. It comes complete with a tough, weather resistant Secure-Ex® sheath which locks it safely in place while remaining light enough to carry 24 hours a day.
As of 2015, the Pendleton Mini Hunter is also available in premium American CPM 3V high carbon steel, with a hard-wearing DLC (Diamond Like) coating for superior durability in the field.
CPM 3V Steel
American CPM 3V takes an extremely fine edge that is highly chip-resistant, and in recent years it has proved very popular with custom knife makers. Though costly, this modern tool steel is astonishingly tough and exceptionally wear-resistant. It is a fine-grained powdered steel, with a very uniform microstructure giving it excellent impact resistance and fine edge holding performance and making it perfectly suited for larger blades where extreme toughness is required.
