Available Features and Options

One Handed Opening

Has a thumb stud, blade hole or other feature to facilitate one-hand use. Some models are one-hand opening and one-hand closing as well..

420HC Steel

This is Buck's standard blade material because it approaches the wear resistance of high carbon alloys while delivering the corrosion resistance of chromium stainless steels. Add our exclusive heat-treat process and you have a very user-friendly combination of superior corrosion resistance with excellent strength for wear resistance and durability. You also have a blade that is easy to resharpen. For best performance we harden to a Rockwell hardness of Rc 58.

Drop Point

This blade is full bellied with a strong, thick point for heavier tasks. It can also be used as a general work knife. The top of the blade drops down toward the tip, which minimizes accidental puncturing while skinning. The drop point blade is strong and very versatile.

belt clip

I have had the knife for about two years now. I honestly love the camo look and the fact its very reliable. But the clip wears out only complaint though worth every penny for the knife.

good knife

I bought it as a city of the knife. I use it for 7 months. It is light, very pleasant to hold in your hand. Quality steel at a height as my 110 anniversary. There is a small backlash the blade. This occurs due to the flexibility of plastic handles. Satin finish blade slopes decelerated in the products, cutting off slightly hampered, scabrous. As a result, this a good knife, but in its price. If you add a little bit of metal inside the grip around the blade mount and make a smoother finish blade bevel, it would be super.

Great Quality, holds up well.

I've had this knife for about two and a half years now, And it's done everything i have needed it to accomplish as a Boy Scout and a Cadet in ROTC. I've got no complaints about this knife, It's been dropped, Beaten countless times and worked though many rigorous activities. Holds a fine edge very well, and sharpens up nicely. I recommend purchasing this knife for yourself, it's a great quality flip knife.

Great EDC

Its a great knife. Ive had it for about 6 months now. I currently use it for my everyday carry for work in law enforcement & its perfect for what you need. A basic knife that holds its sharpness very well plus its not too heavy that it will weigh you down..very convenient. The handle fits nicely in your hands with enough leverage. Recently took it to a fishing trip in Rockport, Tx. & it held up well even in with some rough abuse. I would recommend this knife as a less expensive alternative for an everyday carry.

I just purchased this knife after looking at Many one being Kershaw. My Daughter was with me and needed something at the store...I had a budget of $50.00 so I went with the Bantam BLW because it is Made in the USA and it allowed me to get a great Knife and the item my daughter wanted and stay in my budget for both items. OKAY now comes the best part...What it says on the note they put in the package: "For God loved the world so much that He gave his only son; so that anyone who believes in Him shall not parish but have eternal life"- John 3:16...I know that God works in my life everyday since I gave my life to him and you can have the in God and you will have the best life that God promises you will have...I am so happy that God lead me to purchase this knife from a family that believes in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ...God Bless Y'all!
