Bigger knives are not necessarily better (Sorry, Crocodile Dundee.). This fact is proven by this Cold Steel Pendleton Hunter review. These knives are Cold Steel’s attempt at copying the kinds of knives that master knife maker Lloyd Pendleton made. Although these knives may be on the short side (The blade is just 3 ½ inches long.), they are made with a high degree of craftsmanship and can outperform a lot of the other much bigger knives currently available.
For thirty years, Cold Steel has been at the forefront of the knife making industry. This company is responsible for introducing a lot of unique innovations in knife technology that have changed the industry forever. One of the features that they were responsible for is the use of San Mai III blade steel for their knives. This type of blade construction is similar to the way that Japanese swords were made. Cold Steel takes high carbon content steel and sandwiches it in between “softer” steel that has lower amounts of carbon. This produces a blade that is both extremely hard so it can hold a sharper cutting edge and yet flexible enough to absorb tremendous force without breaking.
Finding a negative review of the Cold Steel Pendleton Hunter is nearly impossible. Almost all of the people who bought these knives were pretty impressed by them. Some even made the Pendleton Hunter their main hunting knife. If there was anything bad that could be said about the knife, it would be the sheath that comes with it. Some people feel that the sheath is rather cheesy-looking and does not really suit the blade; they believe a leather holster would have been better.
Survival knives need not be large and intimidating weapons. Most people would actually prefer something small and tough so they are easily concealed and not a big burden to carry around. The Cold Steel Pendleton Hunter is an excellent example of a small but very impressive hunting and survival knife. It is sharp and tough for most survival purposes, and it is also small enough that it can be easily concealed on your person for self-defense.
The Cold Steel Pendleton Hunter gets a 4.5 out of 5 because of its near-perfect design and its usefulness in all kinds of situations.
