RAT Model 1
This is by far my favorite EDC knife, and I'll tell you why... I'v carried the RAT 1 for over a year, and I use it for everything. I don't need to worry about thrashing it or losing it because it didn't cost me a hundred (or MORE!) dollars. And a few weeks ago... I lost mine. I was cutting some rope behind my truck, and mistakenly left my knife on the rear bumper, and drove off. I came back and looked everywhere, but it was gone. I was only heartbroken for a minute, because I got online to knifecenter.com and bought me a new one! This time I got the Desert Tan version. I previously had the Coyote, which I liked alot, and feel I should have got that one again...but its all good. Maybe I'll just pick it up anyway.

Pros: Ease of Opening, Pocket Clip, Handle Feel, Weight, Blade Material, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Superb, neer perfection.
only 2 things can think of to improve it 1. is smoother top side of the blade (done it with spyderco sharp maker) 2. milled liners to lighten it up. very smooth to open & close most comfortable knife in hand for multiple opening & closing in my collection. SUPER FEEL IN HAND NO ROUGH SPOTS. near perfection at INCREDIBLE value for the money and then some! final thoughts BUY IT!

This knife is great I bought it a month ago and it still cuts paper with the factory edge! I've been using it moderate to heavy so I was suprised. Definetly worth the money for the knife you are getting. If you want a decent medium sized folding EDC knife this will surly do the job. I'm going to pick up 2 More as gifts. Also the pocket clip is great it can be moved to 1 of 4 locations and I moved mine to the bottom left as it offers another place to put your index finger when griping.
