Great Knife, Great Price
I've been doing a lot of research on what type of steel was good (I'm still new to knives) and what knives deliver the best bang for your buck. The Ontario Rat Model 1 surely delivers this. I was debating wether to get the Rat 1 or the Rat 2, fearing that the Rat 1 was was going to be too big or that the Rat 2 too small. I obviously went with the Rat Model 1 and was pleased at how the it felt in my hands. The look and feel of this knife is excellent. It was really sharp out the box, as well. Overall, this is a great knife and is now my EDC.

Cons: None
Had heard about this knife from a couple people and decided to try one. This is a really good knife! I have a few Ontario fixed blades and really like them, but this was my first folder from them. I am extremely pleased with the quality of this knife. When I first took it out of the box, it had a little wobble in the blade, but I tightened the pivot just a bit and that took care of the wobble. still opens smoothly too. Locks up good and tight and unlocks and closes smoothly with one hand.Blade is shaving sharp out of the box. It is a little bigger than I had thought it would be, but that's a good thing to me. Feels good in the hand, nice heft to it. Grip is alright with the nylon handles because of the texturing. Could maybe use a little jimping on the frame behind the blade, but the jimping on the back of the blade gives a good place to put your thumb.Overall, I can't find anything to dislike about it. Will probably buy another with the O.D. handles if they get them in, just really like the green and black combo. Thanks to Knife Center for their extremely good customer service as usual. Knife Center, YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST OUT THERE!.You've got a customer for life. Thanks again.

Love This Knife
This is one of my EDCs that I rotate daily. I love how quickly and easily the blade comes out and locks. The tip is very sharp for a drop point. I also like how solid it feels in my hand. I have seen criticism on the gimping not being good enough but I have no problem with it. The solid feeling it gives has its drawbacks. It is a little heavier than what I prefer in an EDC but that being said, I do use it for EDC. All-in-all, this is one of my favorites!
