Pros: Blade Material, Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Weight, Blade Sharpness, Lock Ease of Use, None
Cons: Handle Material
Possibly the greatest EDC under $50
Considering there are plenty of knives out there around the $40 to $60 range that are still using 8CR13mov and AUS8, the fact that this $25 knife has AUS8 steel and a nice FFG is VALUE at its BEST. The thumbstuds are nice and the opening is smooth (especially after some lubing), the lock-up is very tight so far, and the blade came RAZOR sharp out of the box. The only thing the knife suffers from is a rather weak tip, mine broke after a week, but it was my fault for not being more careful with a FFG. Be careful of the tip and this knife will serve you just as well as many knives double it's price. Props to Ontario Knife Company.

Awesome edc knife
This is a great knife. Razor sharp out of the box. Easy to open. When open, it's well balance and secure. Great price and fast delivery. It's my everyday knife. I use it for cutting cardboard, open boxes, to cut ropes, tubing and tie wraps. I took it on a camping trip recently and it trows spark on a ferro rod like a champ.

Cons: None
Excellent for every day use
I'm no expert, just a guy that uses his knife most every day for general use like box and package opening, around the house uses like wire cutting, etc. I received a RAT 2 as a gift last year and loved it. Perfect hand fit, AUS8 blade is nice, easy to sharpen, & easy to open. Then I made the mistake of leaving it in my backpack as I went through TSA at the airport. Unfortunately it was confiscated and I was pretty bummed. So this is my second one of these and have to say I am a big fan of this knife. And the price point is excellent as well. I highly recommend.
