Description

This RAT Model II has been upgraded with a D2 steel blade in a satin finish and a desert tan nylon 6 handle.

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 and jimping on the spine of the blade for controlled cutting. It features textured nylon 6 scales with an open-built steel liner lock frame. The RAT Model 2 is fully ambidextrous with dual thumb studs and a 4-way reversible pocket clip.

Feels great in the hand tough as nails. Great lock up. Everything a Spyderco should be but is not for a way better price and knife. I got the Mod 1 right after I purchased the Mod 2. The D2 is tough steel. The pocket clip works very well not cheap. Love this knife. Fit and finish beat out knives twice the price. If you use your knife get this if you want something pretty to look at get a Spyderco. The color stands out but does not shout. So if it is dropped in grass you will see it.
Great Quality EDC

Really enjoy this knife. Plenty big enough for a pocket knife 3".
Sharp, staying sharp. D2 blade material.
Easy to grip and I have XXL hand size.
I can open and close it one-handed so its all good so far.
Excellent Knife.

The Ontario Rat2 knife is an excellent size for my EDC needs. The knife came extremely sharp and is a great knife for its price. The only thing I would like to see for improvement is that it had a deep carry clip.
Makes a great gift

I bought this knife as a gift to a co-worker who needed a blade for work but hadn't started carrying a knife yet. I think this is the perfect knife for them. The R2D2 is well built, has a strong blade steel, is easy to deploy and fits well in hand. It's small enough so it's not intimidating and big enough to get the job done. My only complaint is that the pocket clip comes tip-up carry but they can swap it if they wish, lol.
GREAT EDC!!

Perfect size for an EDC, this thing is a workhorse and can take a beating. Easy to clean and stays sharp after tons of use. The action was alittle stiff at first but after a few days of use it flys open nice and smooth with a strong lockup. The handle is very comfortable, it's a great knife!
Nearly Perfect

This has quickly become my favorite knife. Love the thin, slicey blade and the action is amazing. The nylon scales feel great. Would love to see a deep carry come standard on this. and D2 for $40!?

The bad:
Detent ball came super stiff when trying to move the tang overtop it.
The back edges of the blade are super sharp.
You can barely feel the tip of the blade while it's closed.
Gorgeous knife

This knife is gorgeous! I've been wanting to try the RAT 2 for a while, but was not crazy about AUS-8. I had a knife with AUS-8 and although I loved the knife, having to constantly sharpen it got old. I hope D2 holds up better and this RAT 2 punches way above its weight category. Fit and finish is excellent, lockup is solid as can be. Precision of blade grind and the liner lock are amazing.

I do wish it came with a deep carry clip. Ontario, are you listening?! I do not see why a deep carry clip can not be fitted to this knife. There is plenty of room for one. That so far is my only complaint.

Great knife in general. High build quality, razor-sharp, good steel. I recommend to buy it with the D2 steel. I am satisfied with it.
