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

It's ok, not great.

This is my 5th knife from BHQ and everything I've received so far have been excellent, until this knife. Not sure why this knife receives so much praise. The opening is stiff, even with loosening the pivot screw. The detent ball is so prounounced on the liner lock that it requires unnecessary amount of force to close. The carbon fiber finish on the handle had knicks and scratches. This knife looks and feels like it could ve sold out of a gas station for a quarter of the price. If this version was sold at the same price as the nylon handle version, then it would be a little more acceptable but at this price, the expectation was much higher. All the reviews on websites and forums have nothing but good things to say about this knife, so hopefully I received a lemon, but this knife is a huge disappointment.
Great edc knife

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!
