Customer Reviews

The large is good but somewhat stiffer to open and close.

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!

Size Name: Large
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.

It astounds me that a knife of this quality, both in design and workmanship, can be produced for so little money. The fact that this is made in the USA should give the shopper even more reason to put this on their buy list. I like this for its light weight and the pocket clip makes it less likely to get lost, an unfortunate event that has happened to me more than once over the years. Great everyday knife.

Got this knife for myself as an early christmas present, and so far have been pretty pleased with it. The large blade is about most of the weight of this knife, and stays sharper than any other knife I've previously owned. The belt clip makes it easy to stick in your pocket and keeps it up top for easy access. The handle is a little too light, but for what I use it for I see no problems in it breaking any time soon. If your looking for a large knife that you can use to do a little more than open boxes or those sealed plastic containers they put everything in these days, then this is the knife for you. If your an advid hunter or outdoorsman, you might want to consider a knife with a stronger handle. Over all it's a good blade for the money.

I have the medium and large versions of this knife. The medium is perfect and is my preferred EDC. The large is good but somewhat stiffer to open and close. Get the medium and you will never know it is in your pocket. Also, both of these knives came razor sharp and have retained their edges well.

I bought this knife as a rough use blade to take with me while hunting. My main hunting blades are a Buck "50 years" 110 that I wear on my belt with the Buck nylon sheath worn horizontally and a Buck Vanguard that I keep in my pack. These two blades will handle any animal field dressing task imaginable but I like to have another blade handy so that I can keep my hunting blades shaving sharp. I wanted something similar to my old S&W S.W.A.T. knife that I had a few years ago but lighter and with better steel. The Buck Bantam BHW fills this role admirably. Buck uses the same Bos heat treated 420hc steel as they use on the 110's which alone makes it worth the $18 price tag. The absence of a liner makes the knife weaker than it ought to be for a rough use knife but much lighter to carry in your pocket which is nice since I already have a 110 weighing down my belt. I get it that Buck is attempting to cater to customer's demand for a quality knife that is light, affordable and made in the USA but I really think that they should consider creating another version of this knife with a skeletonized steel liner with maybe some rubberized inserts in the handle to give it a bit more grip when wet. Call it the Buck Bantam HD (HD for heavy Duty) or something like that. I would gladly spend a few extra dollars for a knife like that. That being said the Bantam, as it is currently designed, is fine for what I use it for and if it breaks I can always send it back to Buck for repairs or replacement per Buck excellent "Forever" warranty service. Buck is one of the last great American knife manufacturers and I believe they are still in business today because they still make knives that are of particular use to working people and sportsmen who use and rely on their products in real life every day. The Bantam is an example of Buck's commitment to their customers by giving them what they want at a price they can afford.
