Excelent Hunting Knife

Field dressed and de-boned two whitetails and had no trouble. Didn't even need to re-sharpen the blade! Feels great in your hand and has excellent balance also.

Ridiculously sharp and takes just seconds to change a blade. Like the fact the blade is not flimsy and the gut blade slices like a zipper with complete safety. Have been hunting elk and deer for over 50 years and the is now my go to system.

Great product. I would buy again.

I used this knife to skin and quarter a whitetail deer. I like the handle and the fact that it folds. The blade was very sharp too.

I Love The Paklite Line

I've got a couple of the Paklite Capers and like them so well, I purchased one of these Boners. This is a very nice quality knife. Beautifully ground and finished. Feels pretty good in the hand and comes reasonably sharp. A few strokes on the fine diamond stone made it razor sharp. I use this knife to slice roast into stew meat. It does this job very well. The handle less design makes it very easy to clean up. I put it in the dishwasher. It's easy to rinse off in the field too. These knives are Five Star quality, and come at a very reasonable price.
