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.

Good knife
Very good knife for the money. Good size for EDC. Good texture on the scales, good tactile grip without being so aggressive as to damage pockets. Well centered, Sharpe, and easy to open and close blade. Flat grind is perfect for every day tasks. Only negative is its not made in USA.

My own CAYOTE
Just got my RAT 2 from the box.. I was a bit surprised for the size.. it's a tiny knife.. but it's perfect for EDC. I'm carrying a CRKT Hisatsu. Served me well. Now I'm home the RAT 2 will be my new carry knife.

Great Affordable EDC Knife
Had my RAT 2 for about 2 months now and it's still going strong.The AUS-8 blade came hair shaving sharp. I use it for basic tasks (opening packages, cutting rope and wood carving) and it keeps it's edge pretty well. It was also very easy to get it back to a hair shaving edge when sharpening. The RAT 2 has a solid lock up and it deploys fast. It's the perfect size and weight for an EDC blade. However I did notice that the coating is starting to flake off and that the handle is a bit slippery.Overall it's a great knife and I would recommend it.
