This RAT Model II has been upgraded with a D2 steel blade in a satin finish and a carbon fiber/G-10 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 carbon fiber/G-10 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.

2nd most pocket time
Craig A.
I absolutely love this little gem. It is tough, great action, looks good and keeps an edge. I will glance over the $100+ knives and pick this one up along with my Bugout from benchmade almost every time. I do try and swap things around but time and again this finds its way back in my pocket.
This knife is excellent and better than expected..

Not as slick (slippery) as I thought the scales would be, great ergonomics, great aesthetics and literally razor hair-shaving sharp with D2. Sharper than my 154cm Griptillian. Super smooth opening with the studs, I expected it to be stiff. Taiwan made, but solid and durable. Can't beat the price for D2 steels. I would recommend to anyone who wants a good knife in their collections.
Smoothest action you will get for this price

The lightweight of the blade coupled with the location of the thumb-stud makes the R2D2 have an amazing action. Even when compared to a 220 dollar knife using barings, it can compete. Buy this knife!
Finally in D2

I've heard about the RAT for years and held off do to the steel. I believe I ordered mine the day the went up on the sight. So very happy I did this is a very impressive knife fit finish ergos the flat ground blade wants to slice and does it with pleasure. I have many high end knives and I think all collectors and makers should take a look at and handle this knife at some point. This lil RAT proves a high price point is not needed for high quality cutting tool. Bravo
This needed to happen years ago.

The D2 steel is a big improvement over the AUS8. I would be sharpening the blade on my original rat 2 by now, but this thing is still sharp even after a week of hard cutting. The scales are also a great improvement over the originals, even though they are slippery on the CF portion of the scale, the G10 sides give it a better feel over the plastic version. I would honestly prefer just plain G10 scales, but i cant really complain too much about the CF, they still make the knife feel less cheap . Buy this one over the plastic version, its worth the extra few bucks.
Such a perfect budget folder

Great action for a washer thumb stud knife. Carbon fiber is attractive. D2 edge is shaving sharp out of package. 4 way Clip is nice option. Perfect weight and size for edc role. Liner lock is rock solid at 50%
Great gift or great user

This is the best knife for the money and you get an American made product with carbon fiber and D2 tool steel for under $50

You can't find an endura anymore for sub $50 these days - buy two

The Ontario Rat 2 is hands down the best economic knife on the market. I have had mine for 2 years now and have abused it heavily. You will not find a more sturdier knife of the market for anywhere near the price of The Rat 2.

That being said, I cannot wait to pick this upgraded version. With the stronger carbon fiber handles and my prefered D2 steel, this knife is going to be the new standard to what economic knifes should all look up too.

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 - & It's Carbon Fiber.. I had to buy a couple..
