Buck Paklite 143 Review

I would like to start off by saying that I am not paid or affiliated with Buck in any manner. That being said I would like to offer my honest review of the Buck Paklite 143. There are both positives and negatives about the Paklite.

Among the positives is quality for price. The Paklite cost about twenty U.S. dollars compared to the ESEE IZULA’s sixty dollar price tag. The Paklite is constructed out of 428C stainless steel and come razor sharp. It weighs in at 2.8 ounces. Although designed as a light weight skinning tool the Paklite is a cutting machine for its size. The Paklite slashes through hardwood with ease and also batons size appropriate wood fairly well.

Although the Paklite is a great knife there are some negative things about it. The handle is a little short for the average person’s hand. The Duracoat falls off quickly with regular use. Underside of the Paklite is a little dangerous because of the short handle.

For the most part the Buck Paklite 143 is a great knife for the price. If you are looking for a light weight and durable knife that can take a beating than this is the knife for you.

    Little error there. It's 420HC stainless steel.
