Cons: None
Kept seeing people praise this knife on different forums and had to try one out. Super impressed so far, but I've only had it for a week so we will see. This knife is far higher quality than the other knives I have bought in this price range, even the fancy ones designed by fancy knife makers.

RAT Model 1 - Well-made knife for a decent price!
This is one heck of a deal! This knife came razor sharp right out of the box! AUS-8 steel holds a good edge and I put this bad boy to the test the day after I received it. I haven't taken this out into rough country, yet. However, I did test it at work cutting THICK heavy duty cardboard, thick-ply paper bags, and heavy plastic bands. This is a repetitive task for a long 12 hour shift, and this knife took it and came out shining at the end! The blade is still sharp enough to shave paper after all the work I put it through! The nylon handle material is adequate - although I would've preferred G-10 - but the nylon provides an adequate amount of grip/traction for the hand. The lock is tight and after a long day of work, it remains that way. Overall, I would definitely recommend this knife to anyone in the market for a low-cost, high quality pocket knife. If you're already looking at this knife, don't waste any more of your time...JUST BUY IT!!! You won't be disappointed!
