CS20SPH: Pendleton Lite Hunter
Cold Steel
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 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 Kraton for the handle.

In our testing it got straight A's in the field as it is equally adept at field dressing and skinning, held a decent edge, was easy to sharpen, and proved to be tough as nails.

If you're looking for a very affordable hunting/utility knife that comes with a good, pouch-style sheath and delivers more than your money's worth in performance and value look no further than the Pendleton Lite.

Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Blade Sharpness, Overall Quality, Weight, Blade Material, None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard
Winner for the money
Another nice blade from CS, with a surprisingly good sheath. Lightweight, excellent sharpness, and good blade geometry. The lack of jimping on the spine is made up for by the recesses at the front of the handle. I'll get a full-back kydex sheath over at Endless Mountain Supply, and have a knife - sheath combo that'll handle almost any need

Outstanding for the price!
I found this knife to be very good; despite it's low cost. I bought it for small camp chores that a big blade would be awkward to use. It's was great at every thing I used it for. It came very sharp and so far has held it's edge, after lots of cutting strips for fire starting to cutting cord. The only thing wrong with it was that the spine of the blade is rounded and can't strike a spark with a fero rod. I squared of the spine and now it throws sparks like crazy. The sheath is topnotch and should hold up for the life of the knife. It has a very heavy duty welt. I didn't use it on game ,but cutting meat in the kitchen and hitting bone with no chipping, it did very well. Over all I would recommend this knife with out a doubt.

Very sharp skinning knife
this is the sharpest knife I've ever held and very lightweight too. right when I got this out of the box I tested how sharp the blade was on my thumb and I barely pushed down and it cut me right away. I definitely recommend this knife to anyone who wants a skinning knife
