The Cold Steel Ultimate Hunter has the nice combination of strength and durability of a fixed blade and the convenience of being a folder. This knife was designed by custom knife maker Lloyd Pendleton to offer everything a person could want in a hunting knife and folder.
The drop point design is perfect for skinning big game animals and tough enough not to snap while doing so. The blade is AUS-8 steel which is a Japanese stainless steel. This type steel won’t hold an edge like ATS-34 steel but may be a bit tougher.
The rocker-lock design is one of the best in the industry and anything done by Cold Steel is most likely as about as durable as it’s going to get. I find that Cold Steel does put alot of focus on strength and durability as most will probably agree.

I think ya'll will like this one. I've been toying with it all day and am considering taking one from inventory and adding it to my personal stock.
