This RAT Model II has been upgraded with a D2 steel blade in a black finish and a black 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.

fantastic knife
albert t.
i need to get an extra one just in case i lose my current one.

I own a ton of knives, some going up to $600 in price... but i always end up coming back to this cheap a$$ knife to carry. it just flicks open real nice once u adjust teh pivot, and once u adjust the clip, slides real nice into the pocket.

It deploys with such an amazing "click" sound, and closes back up smoothly. it's very light as well!

I absolutely adore this thing... even tho its beat to sh*t. i use it for a lto of things, one in particular is opening up beer bottles. my knife buddies cringe as i'm using it to pry things open "KNIVES ARENT FOR PRYING." but i'm just abusing it like mad cuz its cheap... and yet it still holds up.

It's darn comfortable to hold, lightweight, holds an edge well, easy to sharpen. i wont get sad if i lose it, i'm not hesitant to use it, and i'm not hesitant to freehand sharpen it cuz of cost. No wonder it has more pocket time than my other knives.
