Our company president, Lynn C Thompson, bought the first knife that custom maker, Lloyd Pendleton ever made in 1973. The two went on to be fast friends, and together they collaborated on some of the finest hunting knives in the industry, the Pendleton Series. Our Mini Hunter was designed with one goal in mind, to pare down a functional hunting knife to the smallest size that practicality would allow. Capable of skinning, dressing and processing even large game, this diminutive hunting knife is an indispensable tool that will make a perfect addition to any hunting or camping pack or survival kit. Newly improved for 2015 with an upgraded handle for a secure 4 finger grip, the Pendleton Mini Hunter also comes complete with a tough, weather resistant Secure-Ex™ sheath, locking it safely in place, while remaining light enough to carry 24 hours a day. Our Pendleton Hunter and Mini Hunter are now also available for 2015 in premium American CPM 3-V High Carbon Steel, with a hard wearing DLC (diamond like) coating for superior durability in the field.
