The Buck Bantam family of pocket knives is a budget-friendly lockback folder built in the USA perfect for everyday carry. The Bantam comes in four sizes to fit all hands and a wide array of colors and patterns.
The 285 is the medium size coming in at 7.5 inches overall with just over a three inch blade length. Glass-reinforced Nylon handles are strong, lightweight and great for all-weather environments. This particular version has a Kryptek Typhon camo pattern. Subtle texturing on the top and bottom of each scale with nice ergonomics supply a fine grip.
A drop point 420HC steel blade has machined satin grinds with tumbled flats and upper swedge grind. Its shape is very utilitarian for all-around use and comes quite sharp out of the box. Ambidextrous dual thumb stud openers coupled with a reliable lock back mechanism make the Bantam fully righty and lefty friendly.
Each Bantam comes equipped with a single position, removable tip down carry pocket clip. This is an excellent starter pocket knife and one that will serve you well wherever the trail takes you.
