The Papagayo Skinny pocket knife is one of the lightest and smallest functional knives on the market. The knife is made by Baladéo Knives, a forerunner in outdoor equipment manufacturing since 1995. They’ve taken their standard Papagayo pocket knife and stripped it down to the bare minimum. The result is a blade that weighs just 45 grams (1.6 oz).
The knife is 8 inches long (4 inches when closed) and has a 420 stainless steel blade that is titanium-coated. The blade is partially serrated for harder cuts and is housed in a minimal yet stylish Zebrano wood handle. At the bottom of the handle is a bright orange paracord loop for easier attachment to your belt or backpack.
You should have in mind that this is still a pocket knife and it won’t replace a heavy duty knife in the wild. Even so, the Papagayo Skinny pocket knife is a neat addition to standard camping gear and is compact enough for you to barely notice it’s there (until you need it).
