Cold Steel Pendleton Mini-Hunter
This is a scaled-down version of Cold Steel's premier hunting knife. Unless you are butchering moose or grizzly though, this might be all the knife you need. The 3" blade is constructed from VG-1 stainless steel, the highest-grade steel that Cold Steel uses, and will hold an edge for a very long time without being impossible to resharpen. The blade is set in a deeply checkered Kraton handle that will allow you to maintain your grip even when your hands are cold and wet. Comes complete with Secure-Ex sheath--I took the belt loop off of mine, threaded a leather thong through the holes on the edges of the sheath, and wear it as a neck knife.
Made in Japan.
