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 1 from Randall's Adventure Training is a folding EDC knife that can withstand hard use and abuse associated with tactical or survival tasks. For the money, there might not be a better knife on that market that can match the performance of the RAT Model 1. 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 creates a unique look we rarely see in a knife and distinguishes it from all the rest. Whether you need to add a new knife to your EDC rotation (or you think it would make a great fit for a survivalist, serviceman or woman, or a true friend), rest assured you're making the right choice when you go with an Ontario RAT Model 1.

Short Term Review
I use this for my EDC, that is why I choose one with combo edge. The Blade sharp enough out of the box and easy to sharpen it.Blade coating is worthless, cheap paint very easy got scratches. But understandable for such a cheap knife. I trust AUS 8, I have 4 knives with this material. Blade easy to open with double thumb stud, closing a little bit harder sometimes. Cheap liner lock. Handle grip very good, very comfortable and grippy enough even when it s wet.Good ergonomics too. The only drawback of this knife is if you look the knife from the top it so boring and look cheap, but I admire how cheap and quality can come together into this knife.So I recommended this knife so if you lost a lot of your small items like me, you will not cry for this knife. Awesome Ontario!

Ontario RAT Model 1
A solid knife. The blade is shaving sharp and beautiful, the handle is easy to grip and when you flick it open you can tell the lock is solid. Got it in two days with just basic shipping. The clip seems nice so far and I haven't had any problems with it after a couple days of farm work and commercial roofing.
