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!!

Wow Big Surprise!
i have many other knifes in my collection but i did not expect such a delight, this knife is by far the most comfortable in hand from all my other knifes.. which include ZT, Benchmade, CRKT, Spyderco, Kershaw Boker, it's so good & fine in hand i just cant stress that enough its my only knife where they did smoothed out the liner lock so it wont bite your finger or be uncomfortable when you disengage it. im so pleasantly surprised with this knife, it is perfect the lock, the tactile feel, everything, amazingly smooth in hand knife regardless of it's excellent price! DO NOT WAIST YOUR MONEY ON OTHER KNIFES THIS ONE IS AWESOME!

RAT 1 Review
The Rat 1 is a great value folder! The knife is solid, sharp, and has great lockup. I actually like the weight and size and it feels right in my hand. The blade can be flipped open with ease and the knife provides strong cutting performance. This is a Hall of Fame knife! The great folks at KnifeCenter.com will take care of you. Thanks team!
