Over the years our Pendleton Hunters have become enormously popular, and while we think they are reasonably priced, many have asked us for a more affordable Pendleton that will accommodate just about anyone’s budget. So we got together with Lloyd and designed a new knife we call the Pendleton Lite Hunter. In appearance it strongly resembles the rest of the family with a drop point blade, modest guard, hollowed bolster area and a flared butt to aid retention. The only major changes were the adoption of more affordable German 4116 Stainless steel and the use of polypropylene instead of Kray-Ex for the handle.
Back in 1973, Cold Steel President Lynn Thompson bought the first knife that renowned customer maker Lloyd Pendleton ever made, and the two friends have now collaborated to produce variations of Pendleton’s popular Hunter model. In fabricating the knives, Cold Steel has duplicated Pendleton’s hand-made work as accurately as possible, with blades honed to a fine keen. Each knife’s handle has contours and cross sections exactly mapped to Pendleton’s originals, with durable Secure-Ex sheaths.
The Lite Hunter features a drop point blade, modest guard, hollowed bolster area, and flared but to aid retention. German 4116 stainless steel is affordable but high performing, and the Kray-Ex handle holds up to all kinds of environmental and use-based abuses.
Don’t let the small size fool you — the knife offers serious cutting power.
