Bantam - BBW Black Manufacture ID: 284BKS Easy handling, lightweight and one-hand deployment. Slightly larger than the Nano, the BBW has a mid-lockback design, ridges at the top for added gripping and also has a lanyard hole for easy attachment. Assembled in the USA of USA and Imported Parts Specifications: - Blade Length: 2 3/4" (7 cm) - Blade Material: 420HC Stainless Steel - Handle Material: Thermoplastic, textured - Length Closed: 3 3/4" (9.5 cm) - Locking: Yes - One Hand: Yes - Weight:
I prefer larger folders and the BHW does not dissapoint. In fact, some co-workers tend to be a little put off by it when I pull it out of my pocket to open a box.The knife arrived quite sharp, holds an edge, and takes an edge easily.The weight of this knife is unreal for its size. It's a featherweight, but at the same time inspires confidence that it is well-constructed. Except for the pocket clip, which is about the only cheap-feeling part of the knife.This knife opens quite easily with one hand.I'd probably make this five stars if the blade were partially serrated.

I have the medium and large versions of this knife. The medium is perfect and is my preferred EDC. The large is good but somewhat stiffer to open and close. Get the medium and you will never know it is in your pocket. Also, both of these knives came razor sharp and have retained their edges well.

Though I didn't expect much it was still a disappointment to see a "Buck" blade of this quality. The handle of the knife is constructed entirely of a lightweight plastic, no metal liners or frame. Wonderful for stripping off a few ounces, but compromises the integrity of the entire knife.It's most evident weakness is it's inability to handle any kind of lateral force on the blade. Just a small amount of pressure on either flat of the blade causes a noticeable and disconcerting flex in the knife.As for the blade material, it's decent though relatively soft for "high carbon". The Bantam sharpens well enough, though doesn't stay shaving sharp for long. The blade is pretty thick, too thick to use for cleaning game or fish.For the price it's an alright knife. The Large Bantam is definitely up to opening boxes and envelopes, but unable to perform at the tasks I typically carry a large knife for.
