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.

Blown away by action and sharpness
I have had knives 10x the price of the rat 2 that didn't impress me as much as this knife. Aus-8 is a great steel (at this price point), this knife is very close to perfection.

Solid edc
I use this knife in my edc rotation. I am a contractor an abuse my knives. My usual rotation was a Benchmade griptilian, Spyderco native, and a cheap Kershaw... This knife has fit in and become one of my go to carries. For the price, very respectable knife. I am ordering a second to back this one up.

Good value for the money
I use this knife as an EDC. It is small enough and light enough to fit comfortably in my pocket but large enough to handle any tasks I might use it for. I live in the city so the tasks are not too demanding. Opening packages, cutting fruit or other snacks and the occasional piece of rope. I don't know much about blade material but I have carried a knife daily for a few years and this knife is holding up well after several weeks. Handle fits comfortably in my hand. Four positions you can have the pocket clip is a nice feature although I left it as it was. I read a lot about how fast this knife was to open and it is true, very smooth opening with little force. Only minute con is the feel of the handle material. It is not very grippy. It doesn't bother me too much but if someone used the knife for some tougher task they may find it more of an inconvenience. I like that the handle comes in a variety of colors instead of just black.
