As a nod to the great success of our Pendleton Lite Hunter, Cold Steel decided to make more economical versions of our popular Tanto and Outdoorsman knives. The Outdoorsman Lite knife resemble their more expensive versions in that they feature similar blades, guards, handles, and pommels. The only significant change was the use of slightly thinner 4116 Krupp Stainless Steel blades, and the implementation of less costly materials in the handles. The handles are made in two parts. They feature a Polypropylene guard, pommel, and core section, which totally envelopes the knives' full tangs. The core is then over-molded in a deeply checkered Kraton for a non-slip grip that's impervious to the elements and is easily cleaned with soap and water. To carry your knives safely and conveniently in the field, we are including a pouch-style Cor-Ex sheath complete with belt loop so it can be easily worn on the belt or tucked into your pack or tackle box.
