The Cold Steel Pendleton Custom Classic is the perfect hunting knife; Whether you're hunting the Big Five in Africa, Elk in Colorado, Moose and Bears in Alaska, or Whitetail deer in the North Forty, there aren't many things that will enhance your hunting experience more than carrying and using this superb custom-quality hunting knife. The Cold Steel Pendleton Custom Classic is a handsome reproduction of Lloyd Pendleton's Drop Point hunter. It has a 3 1/2" blade with a sharp yet sturdy point for piercing and a truly razor sharp edge with plenty of belly. Its hand crafted polished blade is hollow ground from 5 mm thick VG-1 San Mai III blade construction and boasts state of the art vacuum heat treatment, a sub zero quench and multiple tempering. With its tapered full tang construction and extra stout "spine" it's virtually indestructible and, in a pinch, can double as a life saving survival knife. Lloyd's guard and integral bolster have been exactly duplicated. Precision machined from stainless steel and skillfully polished, it features a single short quillon and a unique "thumb print" on the bolster to help protect the fingers and allow any number of grip options. The handle is also a faithful copy of Lloyd's original. Featuring a red fiber liner that accents the tapered tang, and twin contoured handle scales made of highly polished black linen micarta with six stainless retaining pins. A heavy pouch style sheath is included. It's made from brown cowhide with a thick welt and sturdy stitching and is wet molded to fit each knife. It covers two thirds of the handle so your knife is held secure and won't "pop out" inadvertently.
