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.

The best folder at this price I’ve ever seen
I needed an new EDC knife and wow does this fit. Great fit and finish. Opens fast and locks firm. Great ergonomics and in D2 , wicked sharp right out of the box I’ve been using it for a few weeks now and it doesn’t need sharpening yet. This is a great knife for the money even at full price, at this price it’s a steal. I’ve owned hundreds of folders and this is one of my favs.

Best EDC
This is one of the first knives I looked at when I got back into knives. I bought a number of other knives, some of them pretty good. But the Desert Tan in D2?! Forget About It! This is the highest quality and best value.My new favorite EDC.

Solid edc
I bought this as a back up for an aus8 model I have... The aus8 is now the back up. Incredibly sharp, very easy to open, sits in your pocket nice and snug. The action is awesome, with a slight flicking your thumb the knife comes flying out. I think this is one of the best EDC is I have due to the ease of carrying it and the price point. I will more than likely pick up two or three more. If you're on the fence, jump off, you will not be upset with your purchase.
