    It's your favorite time of year. The wind has a bite, the leaves are turning, and the wild creatures are out in full force. No, not Halloween. Hunting season. The season you've been waiting for since, well, last hunting season. This year, you're pulling out all the stops. Those deer are yours for the taking and you're ready to prepare yourself for anything that might be thrown your way. First on the packing list, your Buck Bantam BHW camo hunting knife. It's first because, well, let's just say you don't want to be caught in the woods without it. You grab your shotgun, your scent cover, and your snacks and head for the great outdoors. The sun is shining and the wind is blowing in the perfect direction. You're an afternoon hunter because you've never been a morning person. That's all right, though, because you don't need morning luck to have a successful hunt, you just need your gun, your Bantam knife, and a little bit of skill. Oh and did I mention snacks? Right, you've got those. You begin your trek through the woods. You don't have a tree stand, but you've got a blind hiding in there somewhere. The brush is thick so you decide to take action. It is ripping up your favorite coveralls and you can't stand for that. You flip open your Bantam BHW knife and start hacking away like a madman. Those branches are to you what any opponent is to Muhammed Ali. They don't stand a chance. You're finally free and you continue towards your blind, carefully stepping as noiselessly as possible. Finally, you spot it. The blind is still in tact and you're ready to climb in and start your hunt. You shove all of your stuff through the hole first and then climb in yourself. Ahhh. The walls are comforting and the chair you've placed in it feels like a throne to your aching muscles. So much work, you think to yourself, and the hunt hasn't even started yet! You take an energy bar out of your pack and refuel as you monitor your surroundings. As you reach around in your food pouch you feel something crawling on your hand. Gross! An ant! That's it, you think, I'm not letting them ruin my energy supply. You take out some string from your bag and begin to fashion a line, using your Buck Bantam knife to cut through the pieces. You tie the line across the top of your blind, keeping your food far off the ground and away from the energy thieves. You wipe off the blade of your knife and fold it closed, slipping it back into your pocket. You pick up your shotgun, pleased with your incredible MacGyver skills. “Now,” you whisper, “the hunt can really begin.”

    1. VERY sharp Review by Rusty

      The Buck Bantam is worth every nickle. The steel is top quality and the blade and handle are well constructed. I love the camo design. It make sit stand out from a lot of knives. Be careful, this thing is sharp. During the second week I had it I ended up cutting my finger so bad I had to get stitches. That didn't stop me from loving this knife. Just know that it's sharp and means business. It's money well spent. (Posted on 10/6/2014)

    2. Stays sharp and can cut through a lot! Review by Reece

      The Bantam is a fantastic knife. The blade, I swear, stays sharp no matter what. The price is reasonable and the camo gives it a great look. The blade is a little tough to open and close at first but a little work fixes that nicely. It can cut through pretty tough material. I managed to get through some rubber today without much work at all. I definitely recommend the Bantam BHW. (Posted on 10/6/2014)

    3. Nice but lacking in some details Review by Arwen

      The Bantam is definitely well-made and the blade is very sharp. However, the camo design doesn't look as sharp in person as it does in the photos. The pocket clip is nice and secure but a little too tight for my liking. This is a good knife, but for the price I wish the aesthetics and attention to detail were a little better.

    4. Most versatile knife I own Review by Wolf

      The Buck Bantam BHW is the biggest knife I own. It's also the most versatile. The pocket clip is great and very handy. You can open the blade with one hand with practice. The blade is sharp and doesn't need much extra sharpening. It can do anything from the smallest kitchen task, like peeling a potato, to big field tasks, like dressing a deer. (Posted on 10/3/2014)

    5. Not cheap, but worth the money Review by Bill

      I got this knife about a month ago and have been using it constantly since. It's a very good knife, which it better be for that kind of money. I mostly use it as an EDC and it hasn't lost any sharpness since I got it. If you're willing to spend more money on something that will last, this one is it. (Posted on 9/19/2014)

    6. Mostly impressed Review by Mark

      It's a decent knife but for the price I was sad that it didn't come with a pocket clip. The blade also seems to scratch rather easily. The blade shape is nice. It has both functionality and cool looks. The sharpness was ok out of the box but I did a little work on it. The handle is also decent but is better if you're wearing gloves that add traction. (Posted on 9/19/2014)

    7. Buck beats them all Review by Lukas

      This knife is a little bigger than one I previously owned but somehow weighs less. The blade is also much sharper and doesn't require constant maintenance. Appearance-wise, the blade is sort of dull but the camo is a cool way to mix things up. I'm not too worried about how it looks since it operates great. It feels durable and can handle a lot of use. (Posted on 8/28/2014)

    8. Couldn't be happier! Review by Jackie

      Surprisingly, I ordered this knife for my grandma for her birthday because she kept talking about needing something sharp for her garden work. I know that Buck is a great brand and the camo is her cup of tea so I went with the Bantam. So far, she only talks about how much she loves it. Most of her garden work includes cutting rope for various enclosures and tending to weeds, cutting vines, etc. So glad that I could make her happy with this knife and that it hasn't let her down.

    9. Sharp and tough Review by Jay

      The Bantam BHW is probably the lightest Buck knife I've owned. The blade is also incredibly sharp and could probably shave the hair off my face without a problem. The blade looks kind of dull (as in not shiny) but the cool camo handle makes up for it on the appearance end of things. I've put this knife to the test on a number of camping trips and I've been impressed every time. The knife is very sturdy in its open position. I don't worry about it snapping. (Posted on 8/27/2014)

    10. Buck knows knives Review by Erin

      Buck Knives are known for their high quality and this one is no different. I really like the camo design on the handle since I'm a hunter. It's light considering its size and is easily carried. I've banged it around a bit and haven't noticed any problems or signs of wear. I did notice a few rust spots after I forgot it was in my pocket and jumped into a lake but I've managed to fix those pretty well. I like Buck knives because I know that it will be a knife that lasts a long time. I recommend the Bantam for sure. (Posted on 8/27/2014)

    Hey guys! Welcome back to Knifehog.com. Addison here and today I’ll be reviewing a hunting knife that’s sure to bring out the outdoor adventurer in you: the Buck Bantam BHW Camo Knife.

    Although the Buck Bantam is a folding knife, rest assured that this is definitely a fully loaded hunting knife. This knife has an overall length of 8.88” and a blade that measures 3.75”. This knife’s blade is constructed of 420HC stainless steel and has a satin finish, which means this blade is sharp and durable enough to cut through branches, thin wire and even thin metal all the while keeping a clean look. The 420HC stainless steel allows the blade to hold its edge, prevent the blade from rusting and allows you to re-sharpen it yourself with ease. This knife’s handle is constructed of a thermoplastic material with a textured surface and camouflage finish that not only fits comfortably in your hand but also stands up to the elements quite well. This knife’s handle also has a secure grip that makes the knife as a whole safe and ease to use for all types of cutting tasks. A premium liner lock is also included in the handle of this knife that ensures the blade will be held firmly in place when closed. There is a thumb stud located on both sides of the blade, which works hand in hand with the liner lock, in order to provide a quick and smooth deployment. A standard pocket clip is also included on the handle of this knife.

    Overall, the Buck Bantam is a reliable hunting knife. It is a folder and can be carried around easily but houses a blade made of an incredibly tough steel. But, this knife does have a few drawbacks. One is that the locking mechanism, although sturdy, makes it hard to disengage the blade due to its stiff composure. Another drawback is that the pocket clip comes loose right out of the box and could become a potential safety hazard while attempting to deploy the blade. Given this, I would recommend tightening the pocket clip before using this knife. Although this knife does have a few drawbacks, it is still an effective hunting knife that could definitely be an effective tool to take with you on your next outdoor adventure.

    We here at Knifehog give this knife 3.5 out of 5 stars. (Pros: 420HC steel, Liner lock, Thermoplastic handle material Cons: Hard to disengage blade, Loose pocket clip)
