Pendleton Hunter, Hunting Knife with VG-1 stainless steel blade
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 Hunter is much loved by the hunting community and has remained a staple in Cold Steel®'s collection for many years.
Lloyd Pendleton's signature drop point blade makes skinning and field dressing a cinch! The Pendleton Hunter's thick spine, combined with its deep, wide hollow grind result in a very versatile point combined with a razor-sharp edge. The contoured handle supports a modest guard and thumb stop, while still facilitating a wide range of grips for the intricacies of processing game. The deeply checkered Kray-Ex™ also helps the hunter to retain a secure grip on the knife even when his or her hands are cold, wet or bloody.
As for the sheath, for the sake of safety and durability, Cold Steel® has dispensed with leather in favor of Secure-Ex®, a material that will neither rot nor mildew and is far more resistant to cuts or punctures.
