I own a few Bucks now, all affordable, 420HC blades. I just don't have a need for the more expensive upgraded steel as the 420 does everything I need it to do... I'm saving a lot of cash this way. Why Buck? The history, company reputation, warranty and quality product. The low end Bucks share all this with their high end counterparts resulting in a high value product. I've never been to the Buck factory or am intimate with their acclaimed heat treat process... All I know is that the end product is proof of something good going on at the Buck knife mill.

It seems the Bantams were once produced in China but switched back to the U.S. due to quality issues. I have the medium and large, both made in the USA. The first thing that impresses me about the Bantams is the lightweight but secure build. It's amazing how solid their screw-less pivot pins are... no play at all and they lock open with a solid click. For some reason the edges on both these knives needed a bit of a touch up with the ceramic... just a few strokes. They did not come as sharp as my 110 or Max Lite. The Bantams have steeper edges which could be part of the reason. Nonetheless, the hollow grind blade cuts fine and holds itself well.

The medium is the perfect EDC size and the large is great for those bigger tasks or outdoor use... nice backup to your fixed blade selection. I prefer the plain black over the coated handles as the coating causes the textured area of the plastic handle to loose its grip a bit. The large handle fills the hand well and is secure while the medium size requires more pressure to hang on. The pocket clips do their job and are skeletonized to keep the weight down. It is removable if you prefer.

The drop point design makes this knife a good utility blade that can open packages or skin a deer. The low weight makes it a great backpacking option. It opens easily with the thumb studs and will provide a lifetime of service!

Color: Black
I prefer larger folders and the BHW does not dissapoint. In fact, some co-workers tend to be a little put off by it when I pull it out of my pocket to open a box.

The knife arrived quite sharp, holds an edge, and takes an edge easily.

The weight of this knife is unreal for its size. It's a featherweight, but at the same time inspires confidence that it is well-constructed. Except for the pocket clip, which is about the only cheap-feeling part of the knife.

This knife opens quite easily with one hand.

I'd probably make this five stars if the blade were partially serrated.

This isn't a bad knife for $20. It's well-made, has decent steel, and is from a reputable company. The Bantams are all US-made now (since late 2010).

The blade is 3-5/8" long with a 3-1/4" cutting edge. It's hollow ground, and mine came razor sharp right out of the box. Blade steel is Buck's 420HC, which does a good job at edge holding, rust prevention, and the ability to be resharpened, all without breaking the bank. It's not super tough, but adequate for daily cutting chores. The swedge on the back in't sharpened, not should it be. There's a thumb stud on each side of the blade.

The entire knife is pinned together, so there's no adjusting it. This wasn't a problem with mine. The blade locks open via lockback, which is positioned halfway down the handle. Lock-up is nice and solid, with no wiggle in any direction. A lanyard slot is provided, but I don't see much use in it, being that this knife is made for tip-down carry only. The pocket clip can be removed with a Torx (T-6) driver, and is all black; the three screws are also black. The clip is for right-hand tip-down carry only. Retention in the pocket is good. The camouflage pattern on my knife looks great; I bought this so I could have the benefit of using a larger knife without scaring the people around me. For some reason, pink seems to do the trick for that. The camo pattern will vary slightly from knife to knife, but they'll all have the same general scheme.

For the money, I like this knife. The Byrd Cara Cara 2 in FRN is a better choice for the same amount of money, but is only available with black handles.

I bring this knife with me everywhere and I use it for everything. It looks great and is made very well. Its not too big for me as I do a lot outdoors but for a woman who wants a knife that would fit in her pocket maybe get the smaller one. For hunting, fishing, horseback riding, pretty much anything outside I LOVE it!!! Soooo worth the money.

Color: Orange Camo Verified Purchase
I gave this knife five stars because I am very happy with it. The blade appears to be made of good steal. I can sharpen it to a fine edge and it seems to hold. It cuts well. It cuts wood well. The blade has got a good shape - good general purpose. The handle is of a composite material. I was leery of this at first - but it seems strong and I think it is going to hold up to much use. I like the shape of the handle - it is molded to fit the hand. It is a lock blade knife - and because of the way the handle is molded to fit a hand - I feel that I can apply much pressure when using the knife and not worry about loosing control of it. I like the orange color because I got the knife for hiking and camping. The orange makes the knife bright enough to see when setting it down in the woods - but the black woodsy markings on the orange make the knife kind of cool - not just all orange. Lastly - the knife has got a pocket clip and fits well in my jeans - so I am not worried about losing it. The knife says it was made in the USA. That's good. I like the knife. I recommend it.
