The original A.T.R.(At the Ready) knife became an instant cult classic when it was discontinued several years ago. This A.T.R. 2 model revives the original design with an upgraded saber ground CPM-S30V blade and full stainless steel liners with textured G-10 scales. The scales and liners are skeletonized for reduced weight and increased gripping traction. Staying true to the original design the A.T.R. has a clip point blade with a round hole and Cobra Hood for easy one hand opening. A four-position hourglass clip finishes off the updated design.

  • CPM-S30V steel blade with a saber grind for outstanding edge performance.
  • Skeletonized handle scales and liners reduce weight while improving grip.
  • Two-position hourglass grip provides versatile carrying options for comfortable everyday carry.

Customer Reviews

Excellent work knife!
Anders S. on Mar 5, 2019

In my opinion the atr is a heavy duty pm2. The cobra hood make opening it very easy especially with work gloves. It also makes for a very comfortable thumb ramp for heavy duty cutting. The cut out on top of the blade makes for a very comfortable place to put your thumb so you can choke up on the blade to do carving and other detail work. It also allows for a very strong tip unlike the pm2 so I tend to pick it over my pm2 when I need to do hard work. My only complaint is it is a little thin so it can be a little uncomfortable in a bare hand but in gloves it’s just fine.

Description is wrong
Joseph H. on Mar 27, 2018

Normally, I would give this knife a 5 star rating (hey, it's a new ATR)! But I am very disappointed that the description of the carry options is wrong. It is *not* a 4 position, tip down / tip up clip. It is a 2 position, tip up clip only. I could see from the picture that it appeared to be tip up only but assumed that the picture was old or from a prototype. That's entirely my fault. Anyway... just thought that anyone who prefers tip down (like me) should be forewarned.
