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

EDC Perfection
Nathan M. on Jan 29, 2021

I love knives, and I have acquired quite a few. This knife is my new favorite for EDC. It is light, amazing blade design with a flat grind, simple liner lock, and decently textured plastic scales. The D2 is a great steel for everyday tasks. I honestly could not find a flaw with this knife. This knife will beat out many higher end knives just with its design, at this price point, it cannot be beat. If you are on the fence, just buy it. You won't be sorry. Blade HQ has a new customer. Fast shipping.

EDC This
Tae S. on Jan 16, 2018

Amazing little EDC that's very discrete and razor sharp. Had the original RAT Mod-2 with AUS-8 for about a year and a half, just as amazing and it's easy to sharpen (Haven't needed to yet!). But I've been waiting for an upgraded steel RAT Mod-2 version for a while now! So glad Ontario decided to come out with one finally .. Great for office tasks, light tasks, won't handle much heavy use due to it's size but the steel quality is definitely there. The G10 provides good grip in dry and wet conditions. Discreteness: 5/5 Heavy Tasks: 3/5 Light/Office/Daily Tasks: 5/5 Grip: 5/5 ( I do have small hands)

Good budget knife
Kevin D. on Jan 5, 2020

I Purchased this knife due to all the hype about the RATs. I have to say the hype is real. This thing is well built and smooth as butter. The blade is a little off center on mine but it’s not a dealbreaker. I plan on purchasing the RAT 1 in the near future

Great budget carry
Chance c. on May 7, 2018

One the best small budget knives you can buy. Good steel,came sharp. Fit and finish were perfect,apart from a slightly off center blade. No play,super smooth action. Easy to disassemble. Overall a great knife

Buy It
Edward E. on May 8, 2018

Great work knife. I’ve only been carrying it for a few days now, but I’ve done some work with it. I’ve cut, half inch nylon rope, rubber tubing, and various packages, and boxes. It’s still sharp. It came out of the box pretty sharp, but I stropped it to make it extra sharp. It has a very smooth action, it’s very addicting to play with. I’ve popped it open so much, that my thumb is sore. It’s very light weight, you’ll forget it’s in your pocket. It comes tip down carry, but you can move the pocket clip for tip up carry. I gave it 4 stars only for the fact it was made in Taiwan, but the price point is outstanding. All in all, I really love this knife. You will not regret, purchasing this knife.

Can be a bit tricky to put back together.
Nechunya W. on Jun 4, 2021

When I got this knife it was great, but when I first took it apart it was loose afterwards and i had to tighten it a lot. Later I watched Nick Shabazz's video on how to disassemble it and it turns out you have to make sure you put the plastic washers on the knife side AND you line them up perfectly as you can. If you know this it isn't hard but if you don't it can be difficult. With that in mind I'm giving this knife four stars.
