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 2 from Randall's Adventure Training is a scaled down of the wildly popular RAT-1. It's another folding EDC knife that can withstand hard use and abuse associated with hunting or survival tasks. For the money, there might not be a better knife on the market that can match the performance of Ontario Knife Company’s RAT Model 2. 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 gives this knife a rare and unique look that distinguishes this knife from all the rest. If you are looking to add a new knife to your EDC rotation (or you think it would make a great fit for a survivalist, hunter, backpacker, or friend), rest assured you're making the right choice when you go with an Ontario RAT Model 2.

Despite Numerous Attempts To Replace, Still #1
I've carried a 3" RAT for over three years now and despite numerous other purchases of non-assisted and non-flipper knives under 3", this is still my everyday carry. I have tried 15+ other knives, all under $100, to find that perfect carry knife, and the 3" RAT is what I grab every day. I have to have tip down with a thumb stud or usable hole. I can get that type of knife out and back so fast many grown men marvel at it, and in that classification this knife rules the roost. The blade flies open with no adjustment or lubrication. I can't bring myself to carry a $300 knife that might get left on a shelf in the warehouse, nor will I carry something my peers will call a "pig sticker". This knife is the right size, right thickness, right weight and has the right pocket clip. The clip isn't deep. People will see it, but it doesn't have screws under the clip that tear up the edges of your pocket. It snaps open, even after excessive use, with authority. The lock is great and easy to release. The handle is perfect. All of your fingers are in the right place and safe. My only complaint, if it is a real complaint, is the dual thumb studs. Ambidextrous is great, but don't let them protrude past the handle scales, which they do. I ground the clip side stud down, but a little bit of engineering would save that hassle. If you don't it drags on your pocket hem and will tear it apart, not to mention slowing things down. Blade steel is adequate. I sharpen often and while it doesn't hold an edge as long as I would like, a couple passes over a ceramic rod brings it right back. In all, and after many tries to replace it, which isn't a bad thing, this knife has been the perfect EDC for me.

I can't say enough good things about this knife. Now that there's a D2 steel option it's even better!
