Pendleton Hunter Knife -
Lynn Thompson, President of Cold Steel bought the first knife custom maker, Lloyd Pendleton ever made in 1973. Now these friends have collaborated to produce Lloyd's most popular knife, and have called it the Lloyd Pendleton.
In fabricating this knife, they have tried to duplicate Lloyd's work as accurately as possible. The blade is hollow ground and honed to perfection and the handle's cross sections and contours match Lloyd's handmade knives exactly. It comes with a Secure-Ex sheath, which is far more resistant to cuts or punctures than leather.
VG-10 Stainless Steel -
VG-10 has a Carbon (C) content between 0.95-1.05, Chromium (Cr) content between 13.0-15.0, Molybdenum (Mo) content between 0.2-0.4 and contains less than 0.25 of Nickel (Ni). During forging, Mo and Cr forms hard double carbide bonds which help improve the abrasion and corrosion resistance of the steel. It has a hardness of 58-61.
Kraton Rubber -
This is the trade name given to a number of high performance elastomers manufactured by Kraton Polymers, and used as synthetic replacements for rubber.
Lanyard Hole -
This is a hole to fit a lanyard, rope or carrying implement through.
Hollow Ground -
The ground surface of the blade is concave and used to create a fine cutting edge.
