ON8870: RAT-1A Assisted Opener, Satin
Ontario Knife Company
Ontario Knife Company is proud to introduce one of their all-time best selling folding knives, now reissued as assisted openers with their proprietary Tactical Assisted Opening (T.A.O.) technology and G10 handles. This knife has been a long time in the making since the original model was introduced in 2007. The RAT-1 is one of those knives every knife collector should have in their collection, at least at one point. The production quality for the money is absolutely second to none and these knives are built extremely solidly so you can use them for even the toughest tasks. Now, after almost seven years, Ontario has engineered this folding knife for those who prefer an assisted opening blade. They've also improved upon the design by using real G10 for the handles instead of FRN for a better grip under extreme conditions and added a locking mechanism for safety.

Pros: Overall Quality, Lock Type, Ease of Opening, Lock Ease of Use, Handle Material
Cons: None
Very impressive EDC
Used as an EDC, really excellent quality and action. Particulary suited to people with dexterity problems as I have. This is a great quality knife at a keen affordable price.

Pros: Ease of Opening, Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Handle Material
Cons: None
Very grippy, fast deployment.
I love the G10 handle. I wish that OKC use this material to all of their RAT folder line up. If you like the RAT 1 perhaps this also will become your worth upgrade. G10 handle and open assist. The only downside is closing of the blade is quite stiff due to the spring assist.
