This is a more affordable version of Cold Steel's Pendleton Hunter that will accommodate just about anyone's budget.
This Cold Steel knife strongly resembles the rest of the Pendleton 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 4116 Krupp steel and the use of polypropylene instead of Kraton for the handle.
In 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.
