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.

Excessively tight pocket clip
Just bought this last week. The pocket clip is way too tight. I can't use it. I can barely pull it from the knife body with my finger. I'll let it sit in my pocket loose. Not the end of the world.

Great little EDC
Nothing bad to say other than it's too small for my hand. If you need a good budget blade that is small and won't scare everyone around you this is the perfect knife!

Rat model 2
Good little pocket knife. Good for the casual user. Not a hard use or tactical knife in my opinion. My EDC is ZT knives - so the Rat 2 is smaller and lighter but wouldn't take the beating of a ZT (although hard to compare at the price point I know). Rat 2 will get you through small tasks, get you into trouble but wont get you out of trouble.
