Cons: None
Rat 1-very high quality knife
Like many of the reviews, I find this to be a high quality, well built knife that compares favorably with many other much higher priced knives I own, including Spyderco, Benchmade, Kershaw etc. The AUS-8 takes a terrific edge and I simply touch it up on my leather strop every few days to keep it hair popping sharp. It is heavy but I equate that with quality. I use it for EDC and love it's ergonomics, ease of deployment and look. Classic! Highly recommended!

Pros: Pocket Clip, Overall Quality, Lock Ease of Use, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
Great quality.
This knife has better fit and finish than many $100+ knives I have used. Perfect lockup, no bladeplay, came just as sharp as any high end knife. After stroping the knife it is probably the sharpest in my collections currently. The ergonomics of this knife are superb, it is thick, but the profile is narrow, allowing it to disappear nicely in your pocket for how large it is.

Feels like a quality knife
I just recently upgraded my EDC to the Ontario RAT model 1 and couldn't be happier. I wanted a quality knife that was durable, highly rated, and had a good weighty feel. When I first opened the knife, I was impressed with the nice, solid "click" of the lock engaging. I was actually surprised at how much grip it had, even though it was nylon. Though I haven't taken it camping yet, I am sure it will hold up to some abuse. Lastly, this was the sharpest out of the box blade I have ever owned. I always hear how others buy knives that are rather dull at the time of purchase and have to put in some work to give them a clean edge, but not with this one. This only downside that I will have to get used to is opening. The pin is in a spot that doesn't offer a lot of leverage, but I can live with it. I would recommend this knife to anyone looking for an over 3" stainless folder.
