Loved this product, I bought it for a birthday gift for a friend. The sharpening stone is perfect, the knife is a great solid weight knife, extremely sharp out of the box.
I have had this knife for several years and, along with my K-Bar, it is my favorite. Short blade, but very efficient and tough. Holds a good edge and easy to sharpen when needed. Did not care for the "blond" handle and sheath. Covered them liberally on a hot day with an excellent leather oil. Set them in the sun for over an hour to cure. Turned both into a very handsome dark brown. Most every summer, I oil all my leather belts, sheaths, field boots and work shoes. This is an outstanding product at an excellent price. Very happy to have it in the field with me at any time. Semper Fi.
I did a whole lot of research before plunking down this much for a knife and I'm very happy with what I got. No knife will win in the forum debates about which one is the best. The best is to be determined by the user's circimstances. My circumstances will be wet, a lot. I love a truly viable stainless steel option. This knife is that and then some.
Very firm, strong, and great bottle opener! I like how it has that sprayed-on truck bed liner look. Wish I had a clip-on leather sheath for it.
The knife is fine. I doubt I will ever wear it out. The sheath is low quality nylon and the top of the knife blade at the handle is slanted so you can only really carry it right handed. The sheath is slanted as well. Additionally, I am not comfortable with the folding Hook & Loop fold that secures the sheath to your belt or anything similar.
Great Knife and shipped on time.
one of the poster said that he does not like the "handle", absolutely incorrect. I bought this knife and about to buy a second one. The reason I like this knife its the handle is well design. Here is why: 1. handle is rectangle shape and flat 2. handle has a flat bottom 3. handle has a hole for string attachment. This handle is the ideal shape for converting this knife into a spear by cutting the wood stick on one end half "L-Shape" , now you could fit the L-Shape easily with this knife handle.
The Rat1 is just a badass edc. I can't believe the quality of my Rat1. In fact I tore mine down to clean it up and i lost 1 of the silicone rings. I was seriously bummed. So I called okc and I was greeted by a super nice lady that was more than happy to send me out 2 of the silicone rings i needed. Absolutely best customer service and knife company. Customer for life
