The Ontario Rat Model 2 is a shrunken-down version of the Rat Model 1. 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 and jimping on the spine of the blade for controlled cutting. RAT stands for Randall's Adventure & Training, a world-class outdoor training institution that designed this epic knife!

Ontario Knife Company makes a variety of tough-as-nails folders and fixed blades at an unbelievable price!

Customer Reviews

Solid build and D2 is tops
Greg a. on Jul 18, 2018

I have over a dozen folders, mostly Spyderco but this inexpensive folder is surprisingly stout. Solid liner lock up. D2 steel is amazing from Ontario. Great upgrade from the previous and still available AUS 8. Scary sharp. I’m getting a second one. The only ding I would give it is the texture on the scales is a little slick for my taste. Otherwise a perfect economic EDC. Best value folder I’ve seen

Excellent knife
sean s. on Jan 23, 2020

Basically the perfect knife to carry everyday. Just the right size and feels great in the hand. Build quality is solid and it operates beautifully.

Really Smooth Precision Feel
Michael H. on Feb 4, 2020

I love this knife. It doesn't exactly jump open so it is helping me refine my thumb operations on a slower pace. Great fit and finish. Craftsmanship is first level. Very happy with this purchase.

An unbelievable value
James C. on Jun 15, 2019

I had heard about the R2D2 from many a Youtuber, but didn't really understand the hype until I went into Blade HQ and handled it myself. Holy mackerel, is this knife amazing. The weight, ergonomics, fit & finish and grind is first rate, and I could not believe the smoothness and power of the opening. It really does feel assisted. The fact that this knife, in D2 steel, costs only 38.00 is baffling to me. I would easily pay twice that for a knife of this quality. This is a blade that every knife lover must add to their collection.

Great knife, great value
David A. on Mar 3, 2018

I’m coming to the R2D2 from higher end Spyderco knives ($100-$200). I was so impressed with this knife that I bought for my son that I bought one for myself as well and find myself carrying it often. We love the quality build, perfect EDC size, and D2 steel. You can’t go wrong picking up one (or more!) of these knives.

Graet knife
Anzor A. on Nov 2, 2019

I've gotta say this rat 2 is one of the best purchases i've ever made. Very sturdy, I'd say it'll last me just about forever. I love the steel, just strop it for a few minutes every once in a while and keeps it's razor edge. Don't feel the need to dish out any more money on another knife.

Great value, Great knife
Alex A. on May 5, 2020

Couldn't be happier with my purchase. After spending weeks looking for the best budget knife I have found one of the best if not the best knife for the price. Strong D2 steel, great in hand feel, and its so light you don't notice it at all. Very smooth I find myself flipping this thing open all day because of how buttery it feels. Looking forward to putting in a lot of work with this baby!!

Great Gift
Aidan A. on Feb 22, 2019

I bought this for my little brother. He loves it. It disappears in your pocket and D2 is a great choice on a budget.

Great Starter
Glenn M. on Oct 16, 2020

If you are just getting into Pocket Knife collecting - this is a great starter. Not only is it budget friendly -> it's like a $100 knife in your pocket. Sharp, smooth, sleek... you'll love it.

More than a budget knife!
Nathan F. on Mar 5, 2019

This knife feels amazing to carry. Light weight, disappears in pocket, opens fast, and has great ergonomics for cutting. The D2 takes a great edge and holds it well. The full flat grind helps this knife be a good slicer and have a fairly strong, yet precise tip. My two areas that I would improve would be some extra skeletonizing on the handle to remove just a bit more weight and improving the handle scales. I replaced the plastic ones with some I made from micarta and it feels even better. Over all, this knife is well worth the money and could easily compete with knives twice its price. Not just a good budget knife but a good knife in its own right.

great knife
Luis L. on Sep 7, 2019

Nice and compact. It was pretty sharp out of the box. Great color. Cant wait to put it into the edc rotation.

The original budget knife of all time
Hunter A. on Feb 22, 2019

This knife has about 1 million reviews on you tube for good reason. It is the og budget knife! It has good steel for a great price!
