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.

What a deal
This is my first RAT 1 and I have to say it appears to be a very nice knife. For the large dementions it doesn't appear to be a big hulking knife and it carries smaller in the pocket. This knife is ergonomically pleasing as well , feeling good in the hand and the thumb stud placement is good. The blade flicks open very nice. I was torn between the 1 and 2 but I am glad I chose the 1. The size and weight is good. I was expecting the foliage green to be a funky shade due to the price reduction but no, it is very nice. Also Knife Center gets a thumbs up for fast delivery. I ordered it Sunday night and received it Wednesday morning.

Cons: Pocket Clip, Lock Type
Quality knife.
This is a well built knife. For the price I don't think a better knife can be found under $30. Knife feels comfortable in my hand. This knife is just so much better than the tiny rat II. Would never buy a Rat II when this is available for half the price. Liner lock is a little difficult to disengage. Would highly recommend

Great knife
I just recently received the Rat1 and I’ve been using it for opening boxes, cutting cord, etc. I really like the feel of the knife. It feels solid, well built. It opens easily and closes just as easily. The blade was sharp out of the box and so far has retained its edge. Really good knife for the price.
