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. This RAT 2 features a tough blade made from D2, an air hardened tool steel with high wear and abrasion resistant properties.

Greatest Value Ever!
I can't say enough good things about the RAT folders. Not too expensive yet as durable and edge holding as much more expensive knives. I like the RAT 2 so much I give them as gifts when appropriate.

Very impressed
I just received this, quick ordering process, was shipped out fast, and for me this is EDC, i chose it because of it's size and reviews. I am glad i did this knife is solid, came very sharp, locks up tight and is very smooth.. Great choice all around for someone that wants a "medium" size blade. Time will tell how it wears but it appears so far it will do so well.

R2 D2 is an excellent value!!!
Now that it's available in D2 the Ontario Rat 2 is probably one of the best bangs for the buck in the edc knife world. Line up was perfect out of the box and the detent is secure, but can be flipped out with of the flick of the thumb with practice. The scales are grippy without being so rough that they eat your pants' pocket. It rides deeper tip down than tip up, and the pocket clip finish scratches quickly (I personally kind of like this). If the Rat 2 came with a deep carry clip it would be perfect, but considering the price it is still one amazing value!
