Cons: Weight
Best buy!
Strong, excellent quality and extremely affordable. Razor sharp out of the box. Ordered another one for my son. I own over 20 blades for EDC and find that I´m going for the "Rat" more often than for any other.

Great EDC/Tactical knife for the price
I approach my knife evaluations from a few perspectives, first, what did I pay for the knife, second, what do I expect of the knife for that price, third did the knife reasonably meet my expectations. In the case of the RAT 1, the price, very reasonable. My expectations for a knife this price were fairly reserved, but I must say I was pleasantly surprised. The knife came razor sharp from the box, I found the thumb opening process quite easy and non intrusive. While the knife doesn't have the tightest lockup, I found no loose play up/down/side to side. The knife scales were grippy without being obnoxiously abrasive. Overall impression of this knife is a very capable and reasonably priced knife that would serve you well.

Ontario RAT 1: Folding tactical excellence
Just got this a little while ago and have already put it to good use! It's a truly solid blade that locks up well. Handles aren't the grippiest, but they are fine and look very nice. The blade opens lightning fast and has good gimping on the top of it. The serrations are unusually good as compared to some serrations on other blades. The logo on the blade adds a bit of a cool factor and the shiny satin finish is great. While it is a little on the heavy side, it is a solid, reliable, and beautiful knife. I highly recommend it!
