Pros: Handle Feel, Weight, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Ease of Opening, Pocket Clip, None
Good for the price, if you keep your expectations in check.
Great knife for the money, but don't expect it to be very smooth or refined like a US made Kershaw or Benchmade. The pocket clip works well but it's tip up only and only right handed. The open can be very quick with a strong thumb flick or a flick of the wrist on opening, but overall the knife isn't that smooth, it actually doesn't appear to have any kind of pivot bushing. It also suffers from a bit of up and down blade play (though not as much as some other Buck lockbacks I've owned). It seems like Buck could really improve the Bantam model if they added washers and gave it a 4 way reversible pocket clip. The edge on mine, though very sharp out of the box was also asymmetrical (15 degrees on one side and 20 degrees on the other I'd guestimate). Though it's still a great knife for around $20 thanks to it's very well heat treated steel, great blade grind, very light weight, and good ergonomics.
