Buck PakLite Skinner Fixed-Blade Knives
review of buck Paklite skinner
It is a good knife. not great, not bad, just good. It fits my hand comfortably. The edge is sharp out of the box but dulls fairly quickly. I think this knife would be a handy tool to have if a person was only planning on skinning one deer in the field. Anything more than one and the blade would need sharpened. I used the knife to skin 2 racoons and one coyote. By the time I got done with my bottom cuts on the second coon I noticed the blade had dulled significantly and i then had to re-sharpen it before starting the coyote. Although, I do like the curvature of the blade because it helps reduce "poke-throughs" while skinning the tough parts.

BUCK does it again
As with pretty much every other BUCK knife I've ever owned, this is a great idea done very well! Perfect size/weight ( I think ). The only thing I might change would be the sheath. Although it is a very good belt sheath, it could be redesigned as a neck knife, at which point I might MARRY it because I would love it so. ( sorry Honey ). I got the SILVER version, since I'm not SPECIAL OPS, and its easier to find on the ground if I drop it.

Great knife, very light
I first thought this knife was too small, but after having it a while it has become the knife that stays in my waist pack. It is so light and thin, yet comfortable in the hand, and just big enough for most tasks. This was a surprise find for me,t urned out to be much better than I expected. I thought it would be an oddity for my collection but it's turning out to be a favorite.

Purchased this knife because of it's slim and lightweight design. This knife has quickly become my favorite knife. I wear it on my belt daily and don't even remember I have it. The handle is very comfortable and easy to hold. I have not had a chance to use it for skinning yet but plan to soon. Honestly can't think of anything about this knife that I don't like.
