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. This RAT 1 features a tough blade made from D2, an air hardened tool steel with high wear and abrasion resistant properties.

Pros: Pocket Clip, Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Ease of Opening, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
Cons: Lock Type, None
Excellent for the money
Overall, a terrific knife for the money, especially on sale. The size and weight fit my hand perfectly. The opening effort is just right. The pocket clip can be moved to accommodate different preferences. The subdued OD color makes the knife less threatening looking to non-knife folk. The D2 blade came sharp and should be durable. Liner locks are not my favorite since wear or grit can inhibit a full lock up -- the only locking knife that has ever closed on my hand was a particular Spyderco liner lock -- but this knife seems fine so far.

Value Champion
Any competitor reading along: this is what a budget/value handle is supposed to feel and obviously it's possible at less than 40$. The smooth finish might be somewhat problematic when the handle is wet or you're using gloves (haven't tried) and turn into a slippy, fishy experience. Apart from that "maybe" it's perfection when compared to other knifes in the 30 - 40$ range.

Love this knife
Excellent fit and finish. Great blade with a good steel. Not so expensive where I feel like I have to baby it. I actually spilled black oil leather dye all over my first and was so upset I'd purchased a replacement within the hour!
