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.

Bad Carbon Fiber
This is the best knife, for the money, out there. The problem is the cheap “sticker” of carbon fiber they put on the handle. It is so slippery I had to put gun handle tape on it! It doesn’t ruin this excellent knife, especially in its D2 counterpart, but it does take away. Get the other handle material.

Very Good Knife
I'm a everyday all day EDC guy, letters, boxes twine paracord, etc. This knife was sharp out of the box, properly adjusted and blade centered, very smooth operation. I found the carbon fiber really nice, edges rounded with a very good 3D appearance. It is smooth but not necessarily slippery. I'm not an in the muck kinda guy with a knife so I can't comment on wet muddy use. For me I like how it feels. For the money, awesome knife.
