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!
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.
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.

Decent knife for the price. If you expect a $100 knife for 23.99 then this isn't it. It's solid enough but the body is plastic. The blade is nice. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Mike B
