Ontario Knife Model 2 RAT Folder (Black Blade, Plain Edge)
With all the critical acclaim that the RAT Model 1 received, it seemed impossible for Ontario Knife Company to improve on perfection. However, the Ontario RAT Model 2 manages to recapture all the magic of the Model 1 while simultaneously being 20% smaller. That makes it a flawless EDC.
The first model of the Ontario RAT, which stands for Randall's Adventure Training, boasted an unwieldy and intimidating 3.5-inch blade, but Ontario came back with a manageable 3-inch blade, making it an excellent carry in urban settings.
This particular version of the RAT II has an AUS8 stainless steel blade with a full-flat grind and sleek black finish that matches the black nylon handle.
Despite being more compact than its larger brother, the RAT II has that same robust handle that feels natural in the hand.
The RAT II is designed for maximum comfort. A customizable clip allows placement in four different positions on the knife while the reversible thumbstud allows for use with either hand.
Pound for pound, the Ontario RAT Model 2 is not only the best bang for your buck but it's also one of the best EDC knives around.

Bought a RAT 1, awesome knife but a little large for me, as an EDC. They nailed it on the 2! I like it even better then the big one, and it sits better in my pocket. There is just a bit of wiggle side to side on the blade, even when locked open. I may take it apart, see if I can get the wiggle out. Sorry, no news on the blade steel yet, have not used it enough to dull it so far.
Great knife! Will buy more knifes from the Ontario line, again a great knife!
This is a great knife. You should buy one. It looks great. It opens easily. Its not too heavy. Its a great every day carry knife. This is the first Ontario knife I have purchased and I really like it.
Bought a Rat II as a Christmas present for myself. Love it, light weight doesn't wear a hole in your pocket. My first AUS-8 blade, unbelievable edge, so far edge retention is great too. Don't know why I put up with an inferior knife for so long. Don't wait for Christmas to get yours.
