Oh, Yeah! Better Than Expected!
I have an extensive collection of knives and this was my first OKC product purchase. Let me tell you, folks, it definitely will not be my last. I opted for the desert tan handles, so it took 9 days for me to receive my purchase because it was not in stock. They clearly stated when I ordered this blade it could take from 1-2 weeks and I was fine with that. This is a hefty, well-designed, quality knife and I used it today to open boxes of auto parts I received via UPS, as well as other packaging materials. This RAT 1 feels great in my hand. I especially like the 4-way clip position feature because the clips are always situated for people whom are right-handed and I am left-handed. Of course, I open my knives with either hand, but it's good to have a choice concerning clip position. The desert tan color is a first for me, but I wanted something different than the usual black or OD green I tend to choose. I really like the color, the smoothness of the liner lock, how solid the knife feels in general, and how the knife opens and closes like a dream. The handle is a bit more smooth than I anticipated, but I never lost my grip while using this product. What a bargain for less that 40 clams. I highly recommend this product. Bravo, KCI and OKC!!
