love this knife
I collect knives for fun and just received this knife today. I love it. Can't believe the price is so low for this much quality. Feels great in my hand, opens and closes easily one-handed, sharp out of the box, liner lock centered perfectly, I own or have owned benchmade, spyderco, cold steel, gerber, buck, craftsman, leatherman, victorinox, kershaw, and case pocket knives. The rat model 1 is among my favorites already.

Refined Excellence
I wanted a heavy duty work horse of a knife. Wow! Refined Excellence. It has to be the smoothest action I ever experienced. Only the lack of being a flipper and too smooth a handle kept it from being a 5-star. I wish the RAT 2 came in other colors. Lavender would be an instant purchase for my wife. Lighter, bright colors would have me with orange, red, blue or green. Alas, they stuck to their drab colors. Anyway, getting back to the RAT 1, it is simply one of the best knives in the world. The grip is comfortable and there is plenty of room for a full grip. I've been waiting for years to buy this beauty and the time was finally right. A must have for any collection or man serious about doing hard work. Strongly recommended.
