Buck is no stranger to creating solid, inexpensive knives made in these great United States of America.

The years of history and manufacturing prowess of Buck are on display in the small but efficient Bantam BBW.

The Bantam BBW series is in that sweet spot right above the Nano Bantam and right below the Bantam BHW. This means the Bantam BBW features a 2.75-inch blade with a large thumb stud for easy opening. The drop point profile will do its job no questions asked while the size is optimal for urban or everyday carry.

This Buck uses 420HC stainless steel with the heat treat process pioneered by Paul Bos. In less capable hands, 420HC could be a subpar steel, but Buck knows how to maximize the steel for edge retention and durability.

The black handle is made from glass-reinforced nylon that not only offers superior texture but is also nearly indestructible. Within the handle is a midlock mechanism — a position that allows for a smoother closing without sacrificing the strength of the backlock.

Coming in at just 1.5 ounces, the Buck Bantam boasts the “BUCK USA” stamp on the blade. And like all Buck knives, the Bantam comes with the legendary Forever Warranty.

If you’re not a fan of the black handle material, it is also available in a ton of varieties.
