If you like the Ontario RAT Model 1, but want something a little less bulky, then you'll love the Model 2. The RAT Model II is based on the popular Model I, it's smaller, but retains the same great shape and performance of the original. This knife is designed for comfort and performance with an index finger groove on the handle to keep your hand where it should be and jimping on the spine of the blade for controlled cutting. The handle features textured black nylon 6 scales with an open-built steel linerlock frame. The AUS-8 stainless steel drop point blade has a satin finish and a plain cutting edge. The RAT Model 2 is fully ambidextrous with dual thumb studs and a 4-way reversible pocket clip.

Great Value

It's going to be hard to find a better knife at this price! Slick deploy, nice feel in the hand. Nice lockup. Money well spent!
Favorite small EDC

I have owned this knife for roughly 4 years now and it has had more carry time then almost any other knife I own. I used my RAT Model 2 exclusively for about 2 years while I worked in a retail job. I cut plastic straps and boxes all the time and it held up like a champ. I didn't have to sharpen it that often to keep a usable edge on it. The deployment is insanely fast, it feels almost like it is assisted, because of how quickly it flies out with hardly any pressure. I love flicking this knife all day, it drives my wife nuts.

I have two negatives. The first is after thousands of open and closes, the detent ball got incredibly rough. But that is an easy fix with maintenance and hasn't been an issue since. The second negative is the liner lock is pretty hard to push and due to the size puts a lot of pressure on my thumb and causes some discomfort if I close it often. But this is a minor issue and doesn't detract from my love of using it.

Overall the RAT Model 2 is the perfect size, with incredible speed of deployment and great looks. I love this knife.
Cheap, Small EDC? Look no further.

The Rat 2 is a super comfortable EDC that is very easy to integrate into any system. Even though its small, it will get any realistic job that a knife should be used for, done. Amazing value for the great price.

If you are thinking of only carrying this knife as EDC/Last ditch tactical, I would argue it is too small and not ergonomic enough to be a reliable tactical knife. When I carry this, I pair it with a larger, dedicated tactical folder like a Cold Steel.
