Ontario Knife Company

Randall's Adventure Training has been designing, marketing, and selling survival and military-style knives since their first survival courses in the Amazon Jungle of Peru. One of their first designs was the RTAK which was built by Newt Livesay's Wicked Knife Company before Ontario Knife Company produced the design. ESEE also produced and sold the RAT skinning/survival knife made by John Greco and the RAT Laser Strike knife made by TOPS (ESEE has since re-introduced the Laser Strike as an ESEE knife). Randall's Adventure Training also designed the following knives for Ontario Knife Company: RTAK II, TAK, RAT-7, RAT-5, RAT-3, Model 1 folder and the Model 2 folder. 

The Ontario RAT Model 1 from Randall's Adventure Training is a folding EDC knife that can withstand hard use and abuse associated with tactical or survival tasks. For the money, there might not be a better knife on that market that can match the performance of the RAT Model 1. It features an ergonomic handle with smooth action and rock-solid lockup. The four-position pocket clip allows the user to customize their carry method to their liking. We absolutely love the off-set blade from the handle, which creates a unique look we rarely see in a knife and distinguishes it from all the rest. Whether you need to add a new knife to your EDC rotation (or you think it would make a great fit for a survivalist, serviceman or woman, or a true friend), rest assured you're making the right choice when you go with an Ontario RAT Model 1.

Cons: None
Great Budget Folder
I bought this knife because the reviews are mostly positive. I agree that the knife is on the big side. i like the fact that the carry clip is 4-way adjustable and the knife is reasonably light. Feels nice in the pocket. Not tac-ti-cool, but practical. I use my knife to cut everything but rocks...lol.

Ontario Rat Model 1
Nice EDC when you want a larger blade but not one that’s excessively large. Great to take on a motorcycle run for example; fits in your jeans pocket comfortably on the bike, doesn’t interfere with your ride and yet looks sufficiently badass when you pull it out! I consider this a three season EDC knife, meaning it’s too large and thick to carry in thin or tight summer clothing but with typical Fall through Spring clothing or in a jacket it’s perfect. Sturdy, takes and holds a super sharp edge, snaps open quickly for a non-assisted opener, looks great.. totally love it!

Really a great knife. Excellent sharpness right out of the box! Initially I thought it was a little tough to flip open the blade, but with a little practice, no problem. I would definitely recommend this for anyone's EDC.
