Rat 2 - 1.5 year review
I've been using this knife as a part of my EDC rotation for over 1.5 years now, and it has served me very well. I carry it as my friendlier-looking knife for everyday use, and for in places where blade length is limited. I've carried this knife through multiple states, different backpacking/hunting trips, even to the other side of the globe. It has never let me down. This knife is ideal for general cutting, scraping, etc. uses, and shouldn't be expected to do work outside of it's design. While some knives are much beefier and can be abused/pressed into other uses like prying or batoning, this knife is not one of those. I have definitely abused this knife because of how cheap it is, I'm comfortable pressing it into hard work. I've chipped the tip from prying/using it as a screw driver, swam/surfed with it on me for a week, banged it up, cut material that shouldn't be cut with a knife, used it to scrape carbon off of BCGs and more. It keeps rocking. I have lost one of the screws for the handle, but that's it. Favorite things about the knife are the high quality to low cost ratio, the weight, and ease of maintenance. I did stipple a little section on the left-side scale to aid in drawing the knife, and took it apart about 6 months in to clean/polish everything. The lock-up is at about 90-95% now, but that's probably expected after the use this knife has seen. The handles are a little slippery, and the coating on the clip comes off easily. I love this knife. I would absolutely recommend it if you are looking for a cheaper EDC knife. The blade shape is very useful, the steel has held up well, and the quality is higher than expected. While this is the lowest cost knife I would ever rely on if given the option, it is still better than some knives I have tried that cost more.

RAT model 2
My only flaws are with the smooth handle and trying to open with thunb studs!!...I have large hands and should have bought the bigger model #1 version.this knife was very sharp out of the box and the blade lock up was outstanding!!... I would recomend this knife as a camp knife or Edc!! very happy Ontario knives...they are some of the best knives on the market!!
