ON8834CF: D2 RAT Model 2, Carbon Fiber/G10
Ontario Knife Company
 
Randall's Adventure Training has been designing, marketing, and selling survival and military-style knives since their first survival courses in the Amazon Jungle of Peru. One of their first designs was the RTAK which was built by Newt Livesay's Wicked Knife Company before Ontario Knife Company produced the design. ESEE also produced and sold the RAT skinning/survival knife made by John Greco and the RAT Laser Strike knife made by TOPS (ESEE has since re-introduced the Laser Strike as an ESEE knife). Randall's Adventure Training also designed the following knives for Ontario Knife Company: RTAK II, TAK, RAT-7, RAT-5, RAT-3, Model 1 folder and the Model 2 folder. 

The Ontario RAT Model 2 from Randall's Adventure Training is a scaled down of the wildly popular RAT-1. It's another folding EDC knife that can withstand hard use and abuse associated with hunting or survival tasks. For the money, there might not be a better knife on the market that can match the performance of Ontario Knife Company’s RAT Model 2. It features an ergonomic handle with smooth action and rock-solid lockup. The four-position pocket clip allows the user to customize their carry method to their liking. We absolutely love the off-set blade from the handle, which gives this knife a rare and unique look that distinguishes this knife from all the rest. If you are looking to add a new knife to your EDC rotation (or you think it would make a great fit for a survivalist, hunter, backpacker, or friend), rest assured you're making the right choice when you go with an Ontario RAT Model 2. This RAT 2 folder features a tough D2 tool steel and carbon fiber/G10 handles, an upgrade from the AUS-8 steel and nylon handles of the regular production versions.

This blade gets the job done.
I use this knife everyday from cutting paracord to cutting my lunch. The D2 steel can cut through anything, I think. It's not showing any nicking or dulling from everyday use. The jimping on the top of the blade provides excellent control of the blace. I like the length of the blade too. Since I am not a large person, I try to keep the maximum length to within 3 inches. Because of that, it fits very good in my hands. The ergonomic handle design cradles my forefinger well without compromising the placement of the liner lock. It is neither too recessed, nor pronounced, and opening and closing the blade is very smooth and efficient.The CF handles are a little too smooth though. I'm not saying that the knife may accidentally slip between your fingers during use, but maybe choosing the G10 scales will provide extra security for others. But having CF handles makes it easy to clip it in my trouser pockets without fear of the cloth being frayed in time by rough scales.Overall, I am pleased with this purchase. It gives the most bang for my buck.
