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 folder features a tough D2 tool steel and carbon fiber/G10 handles, an upgrade from the AUS-8 steel and nylon handles of the regular production versions.

Cons: Pocket Clip, None
Try it...like it.
These are hard to beat for the money. Incredibly sharp out of the box, lock up is super tight with no wiggle in any direction. D2 blade seems to hold edge really well and after about a month of daily use on cardboard ,paper ,plastic and a little wood whittling here and there I run it over the strop a couple of times about once a week and keep the edge sharp as new. Haven't had to use any sort of sharpener yet other than maintaining with the strop.. C.F. handle scales are nice but bought same knife in the OD Green as a gift for a friend and think I might actually like it more. Only complaints are pocket clip is a little too tight for some pockets and not deep carry. Also knife is not marked Ontario anywhere and it is made is Taiwan :( Anyway, still great knife and highly recommend it for the price. Knife Center was great and I received my order super fast. Thank you!

Very nice
I like this knife. It is rather compact and light and clips in my pocket well and is sharp. I replaced another knife that was clipped in the same pocket. All-in-all a good knife for the price. Well constructed.
