Description
CS20PH: Outdoorsman Lite
Cold Steel

As a nod to the great success of our Pendleton Lite Hunter, we have decided to make more economical versions of our popular Tanto and Outdoorsman knives. They 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 Cordura sheath complete with belt loop so it can be easily worn on the belt or tucked into your pack or tackle box.

Pros: Materials, Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard
Can't beat it for the price.
First off, you have to understand what this knife is and isn't. This isn't some hardcore survival knife you are going chop down trees to build a shelter with, nor is it intended to do that. (Though it is still very tough) This is a fantastic light-medium duty camp knife. Great for food prep, fish/game cleaning/butchering, whittling sticks by the fire, making tinder etc. You know... knife stuff, not "axe stuff". 4116 Krupp steel is very good for the price, Don't let the word "stainless" fool you, this is not your cheap 440 from china. I put both this, and the Finn Bear thru a lot of use, and both held up better than expected. Keeps an edge and easy to sharpen for a stainless steel. The grip is fantastic. It has wonderful traction even when wet/bloody, and feels great in the hand. The tang extends a millimeter or two past the pommel, which shows that this is indeed a "full tang" blade. As with many Cold Steel knives, it comes very sharp out of the box. Best of all is the weight. It is so light, I forget that it is even on my belt. It makes a wonderful back up blade to stuff in a pack. The sheath is a basic pouch, that will lose a bit of it's "hold" over time. All you need to do is simply squeeze it back every once in awhile. I would also appreciate a larger belt loop, but that isn't a very big deal.

Cons: None
Good camp,fishing knife.
For the $$,and actually using your knives,not just COLLECTING them, this, along with the Finn Bear,and Pndlton Lite Hunter,also the G.I. Tanto,and the CS BushMan,are FAR and AWAY Cold Steels' BEST KNIVES.I know alot will disagree with me and say that the SRK is the best overall survival/tactical/Utility knife.And while it is a great knife,it also costs at least 3x more than any of the aforementioned blades.Can it REALLY PERFORM 3x better than the GI Tanto,or the CS BushMan? I dont think,i KNOW it can't.I own all these mentioned,and while i love my SRK,it IS NOT the best deal CS offers when you throw everything into the mix.The low-end knives are.Next time you are wanting to get a new blade,and are on a tight budget, pick up on of these CS knives i have mentioned,you wont be disappointed.

Soft Target Specialist
Apples, tomatoes, potatoes, cantaloupe, spinach, all camp kitchen tasks and other soft targets as needed. Great blade geometry to facilitate slices and cuts of all types. Cold Steel cannot be beat for blade geometry design and execution. This blade is simply a devastating slicer and dicer with a strong tip for penetrating those hard to penetrate squashes. Don't let German 4116 SS turn you off. Just get a GATCO EdgeMate carbide sharpener and touch up as needed. You will not be disappointed. I did a fantastic job accidentally slicing a nerve, tendon and artery on a finger. I was impressed. The Outdoorsman Lite deserves a Secure-Ex sheath!
