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.

Oh, Yeah! Better Than Expected!
I have an extensive collection of knives and this was my first OKC product purchase. Let me tell you, folks, it definitely will not be my last. I opted for the desert tan handles, so it took 9 days for me to receive my purchase because it was not in stock. They clearly stated when I ordered this blade it could take from 1-2 weeks and I was fine with that. This is a hefty, well-designed, quality knife and I used it today to open boxes of auto parts I received via UPS, as well as other packaging materials. This RAT 1 feels great in my hand. I especially like the 4-way clip position feature because the clips are always situated for people whom are right-handed and I am left-handed. Of course, I open my knives with either hand, but it's good to have a choice concerning clip position. The desert tan color is a first for me, but I wanted something different than the usual black or OD green I tend to choose. I really like the color, the smoothness of the liner lock, how solid the knife feels in general, and how the knife opens and closes like a dream. The handle is a bit more smooth than I anticipated, but I never lost my grip while using this product. What a bargain for less that 40 clams. I highly recommend this product. Bravo, KCI and OKC!!
