When my brother sent me this knife for a b day present, i was amazed at everything about it , hands down. As a Marine i hold high standards for a blade, and now living primitive off and on for six years, I know the rat-5 takes the friggin cake.

Pros: None
Cons: None
I have purchased (4) Ontario rat 5s for bug-out-bags. I bought (3) rat 3S and I carry the rat 3 all over. I love the durability of the 1095 carbon steel. I really appreciate the way it takes an edge and I love the micarta handle. You could pay more for other knives. At this point, I wouldn't be comfortable experimenting like that.

Great Knife, Great Price, Great Service...
This is a knife I have had my eye on for quite a while, and I was not disappointed. The RAT 5 is an exceptional survival knife of the best quality. Very similar to the ESEE knives, with the exception of price, this blade is a workhorse for a multitude of purposes in the bush or just the backyard. The knife arrived razor-sharp, and even after heavy use, it was surprisingly easy to hone the blade even sharper. A sheath that can be mounted horizontally would have been an added bonus, but the sheath provided is a sturdy design that after a very short while I grew to like a a lot. The extra pocket is the perfect size to piggy-back my multi-tool (something I always carry anyways), which is perfect as I consolidated the two (knife/multi-tool) into one easily carried unit, either on the belt or strapped to a backpack. Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase and the service provided by I look forward to shopping from this site in the future.
