This well-produced item is priced like a zillion Chinese-manufactured folders, so it's surprising and encouraging to see Buck identify it as US made. I hope it's true, but even if it isn't, at less than $25 I could hardly complain. It's solid, plenty sharp and operates with the confidence one expects on much more expensive knives. I've only used it for a couple of days, but I am putting it through its paces in the garden while my pricier knives lay unused in the drawer.
There's no reason to not get this knife.
I work as a custodian and I use this knife on a daily basis in my work. The steel is All-American 440HC so it takes an edge very well. The action is smooth and the jimping on the handle makes for a reasonable grip even in a sweaty hand. The lanyard hole is integrated wonderfully into the handle. Being a mid-lockback design, the Bantam is easy to open and close with a single hand, even in latex or vinyl gloves.
