The Buck 285 Bantam BLW is slightly larger than the BBW. Easy handling and lightweight, the Bantam BLW features a pocket clip for tip-down carry. The Bantam is built with durable 420HC blade steel and a stylish polymer handle with a textured surface for a sure grip. It locks open for safety and closes using a mid-lockback design. The contoured handle makes this knife easy and safe to use for daily cutting.

I carried this knife in high school and college and loved it. You get a very good sized knife for a very low price and weight. The one I had was made in China, but now you can get it for the same price made in America, that is a double win in my book. This would make an excellent first knife.
Great knife! Disappears in your pocket. Excellent for EDC!
