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.

Rat 2 D2
Bought for edc. Liked the original Rat 1 but it was too big then the Rat 2 came out and I didn’t like the blade steel. This one without D2 seems like a great deal.

Cons: None
Great knife don't pass it up.
Let me just say D2 steel, its a no brainer the rat 2 was already a great knife just needed better blade steel. Now it's here,I have high end knives and I find myself carrying the rat 2 only. Break in time was a few hours oiled it up and deployment is smooth and lightning fast. Bronze washers on this model that's plus, just a great knife as always dealing with knife center is great.
