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. This RAT 1 features a tough blade made from D2, an air hardened tool steel with high wear and abrasion resistant properties.

Pros: Handle Feel, Handle Material, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Value Champion
Any competitor reading along: this is what a budget/value handle is supposed to feel and obviously it's possible at less than 40$. The smooth finish might be somewhat problematic when the handle is wet or you're using gloves (haven't tried) and turn into a slippy, fishy experience. Apart from that "maybe" it's perfection when compared to other knifes in the 30 - 40$ range.

Love this knife
Excellent fit and finish. Great blade with a good steel. Not so expensive where I feel like I have to baby it. I actually spilled black oil leather dye all over my first and was so upset I'd purchased a replacement within the hour!

Great knife....better customer service
If you scour the internet, you will find enough information and reviews on the Ontario Rat 1 D2, so I don't want to bore you with all of that. What I do want to write about is the customer service I received from KnifeCenter. First off, their price for this knife is the lowest I have seen and I have turned every page on the web. So I already knew I was going to purchase this knife after reading and watching all the positive reviews. Plus I already have the Rat 1 is AUS8 and I love it. So going with the D2 was a no brainer. What did surprise me along with the great price was how fast they shipped my knife. Living in Hawaii, it is very difficult and sometimes impossible get to things shipped here on a timely manner. I placed my order on a Friday night and it was shipped on Monday, the first business day. I received it on Wednesday, 2 days later!!! For the people living on the mainland that might not seem like such a big deal, but for us in Hawaii, that's a huge deal. In fact, I initially tried to order an Ontario Rat 1 from Amazon before I discovered KnifeCenter and they wouldn't ship it to Hawaii. No idea why because I've bought plenty of knives through Amazon. Not sure what makes the Ontario Rat 1 so different. So if you want to buy an outstanding knife at an outstanding price with outstanding service, do not hesitate. Buy now from KnifeCenter.
