BU286: Buck Bantam BHW, Black
Buck Knives
To meet the need for a lightweight, safe and affordable knife, the Bantams were developed. Quality and durability were the main goals, as was reliability. The lockback mechanism adds the necessary safety features, and the various camo patterns give them added use in the field, or simply look good for daily carry. Originally produced in China, Buck brought the Bantams to their Post Falls facility for USA production in 2009. Also offered in various camo patterns, the Bantam has been a best seller from the beginning.

Buck's sleek, new series of lightweight mid-lock backs features a host of convenient, easy to use enhancements. From the tip of the blade, through the wide sloping edge, these knives are ready to meet the ever expanding everyday demands. The lightweight ETP handle offers a firm, well-balanced grip. Available in Mossy Oak Break-Up, Mossy Oak Blaze and Mossy Oak Blaze Pink camo there is a color for everyone. Thumb studs on both sides of the blade provide easy, one hand opening, while the mid-lock back location makes for a smooth closing. These knives come in multiple sizes to meet any personality, and all are priced to meet every wallet size.

Buck Bantam BHW
Very well made for the price. It's nice to have an American made steel for under $20.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Weight, Blade Material, Lock Type
Cons: None
Pretty decent knife
Here's the lowdown: I've had this knife for three years now, and it's still running strong. After all this time I still love it, the blade steel is better than expected because of the heat treatment that Buck performs on their 420HC blades, the handle is amazingly sturdy considering it's really light weight, and after three years of beating the living daylights out of this knife as an EDC blade I've NEVER had to do any screw tightening AT ALL. So basically, for $20 just go ahead and buy this knife. I swear you will not be disappointed!

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, None
Cons: Pocket Clip
Got this knife about 2 years ago for christmas. It's worked well as a fishing knife and I have also gutted lots of squirrels with it and it retains it's edge well. This knife is definitely a good buy for the money. The only problem I've had with it is that the pocket clip came off and there's a bit more play between the handle and blade than I would like.
