BU284: Buck Bantam BBW, 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.

Pros: Lock Ease of Use, Weight, Ease of Opening, None
Cons: Handle Material, Blade Sharpness, Lock Type
It's ok at best
You can get a better knife than this. Just spend more money. The plastic handle is not nearly as nice or stiff as G-10. I had the knife for about 6 months and just use it for general stuff around the house nothing beefy. Pros: It feels great in your hand, opens easy with one hand, nice and light, slim for your pocket, and drop point blade looks pretty cool polished. Cons: Plastic is not that great, I was not able to get the blade as sharp as my Gerber (but that could be my skills), and the annoying is the small vertical play after using it 6 months. I can tell my larger Buck Bantam is going to have the same vertical play problem after it loosens up also. I am going for a Linear Lock knife from now on with G-10. Maybe a Spyderco Tenacious or 5.11 Tactical Alpha Scout which I have now. Good luck and happy days Buck Bantam owners here. I really tried very hard to love this knife but it's just ok to me.

Great Everyday Carry knife
This small lightweight Buck pocketknife is great if you want something this fits in a front pocket and is not dangling from a clip. I am a very large man and wear XXL gloves but this little knife still feels good in my hand with the finger groove and jimping on the back of the knife for my thumb. I wanted something non threatening if I loaned it to a woman to open a carton or cut string, and the blade is 2 3/4" so it's not scary. It's made in the USA as I prefer, and was good and sharp right out of the box. Overall it's great and I would recommend it to anyone who prefers something small and light. It's really not made for heavy use like hunting, camping or as a work knife. Buck makes lots of other models for that. On the down side, it's a little awkward to open with the 2 sided thumb stud. Mine is a bit stiff to open one handed, and there is no way to adjust the tension. It may loosen over time. Closing it is best done with 2 hands. Still, a great value for the money, and made in the USA.
