BU285: Buck Bantam BLW, 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. Also 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: Pocket Clip, Weight, None
Cons: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Handle Material
Not Happy, Knife was dull
I wanted to buy this knife for working on a ranch, and as an every day carry. From the first opening the package I could tell I wasn't going to be satisfied. It looked like who ever packed the knife ripped a paper back and half-heartedly rolled the knife's box into the shipping box. The knife itself was dull and had several imperfections or dings on the blade. Buck promises that it's ready to use sharp out of the box but the knife I received could not cut paper like videos on the internet I've seen. I am upset with my experience with Knife Center.

Pros: Handle Material, Handle Feel, Lock Type, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Blade Material, None
Economic EDC
The blade came sharp and free of issues. It is a cheap EDC that you aren't scared to use and abuse. It sharpens up well and performs admirably for its price point. Opens fairly easily, decent build quality and the clip is just right. Its a Buck, USA made and a great all around EDC. 20$ is the cherry on top.

Pros: Ease of Opening, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Weight, Overall Quality, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
I bought these as a gift for my crew members offshore. They all liked the size, weight, and overall feel of the knives. The shipping was surprisingly fast, and the quality upon arrival was as good as expected. Definitely recommend KC and this knife for an all around working blade.
