Description

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

I really like the D2 blade. The knife operates well and I like the index finger groove.
Great value.

This is an excellent knife for the price. Great fit and finish, sharp out of the box, great lock-up, solid build. Operates smoothly after cleaning. Sharpens easily and holds an edge after a bit of use. My only gripe is the black coating (its just paint it seems). It will wear quickly. After one day of use the coating is chipping at the edge. I would recommend going with a satin finished D2 blade RAT 2.
Very Good for the Money

I needed to buy 6 knives, but I was on a budget. I chose this model after some research and I'm glad I did. I couldn't be more pleased with the quality that I got for the money I spent.
Excellent Value

For the money these are very hard to beat. They fly open like an assisted knife but aren't assisted. If you are looking for a budget edc knife that can take a beating look no further.
Great knife!

Purchased as a EDC work knife. Chose this version for the desert tan handle and black blade. First time using it and the black finish on the blade quickly pealed off. Noticed that I could use my fingernail to remove the black finish, it's that cheaply applied. However, the weight, finish and blade on this knife are very good for the price, so I'm keeping it. I'll replace it someday with the larger Model1, but in the satin or steel finished blade. Worth the money.
