Awesome budget blade! In love!
I was looking for a good budget EDC knife that could take a beating and I found it in the RAT 1. This knife is amazing. The ergonomics on the handle are great, the liner lock is extremely strong, the edge retention is the best I have ever seen on any AUS 8 knife, the spine throws sparks from a ferro rod no problem, and the pocket clip holds the knife in the pocket very well! I have two videos on this knife on my youtube channel (Woodland Tactical) and will soon be reviewing the D2 version of the RAT 1 as well. If you want a tough budget knife this is it. I've fallen in love with this knife and will recommend it for many years to come!
