Great knife at a great price
I bought one of these back in 2010 and have used it extensively. It is well made, workhorse of a knife. I have large hands, and the feel of this is great. It sharpens well, and holds the edge. The scales seem a little slick at first, but in actual use, this has never been a problem. The only issue for some folks is that it may seem a little big and heavy. Fear not, the RAT 2 is 20% smaller, and just as well made. I have used it as well, and it too is excellent.

Awesome knife, look no further.
I use this knife everyday and love it. Love the way it feels in my hand, the blade sharpness and even the handle. I bought many of knives before this one, I can honestly say.........Im done shopping for a carry knife.

What can i say! Awsome knive. Here in Belgium with has no knive culture at all. Is it difficult to buy a good knive. Due to a limited range of products on the market. The price setting is verry high. For a good knives you pay 100 euro and more. I was verry reluctant to by this knives for about 25 euro. In this country , that price means usualy crap knives. But the Ontario 1 ! WHAT A KNIVE for the money. I used it as EDC and verry happy with it. It's not to big for me. Mainly because in Belgium it's actually illegal to carry locked blades. But because nobody hardly makes other knives , the police usualy doesn't enforce the law. But the knive has to be in your pocket, not visable on your belt of pocket. The blade comes razor sharp out of the box and the deployment is incredible smooth. It's like an assisted spring knive.
