Just perfect, so so great
Review by Keepshooting Customer
One thing about an expensive knife, for some reason people like others, think it's an expensive whittling toy or a box opener. This is a tool. Buy the proper size to do the job at hand and stop wasting good money. The media could not be loaded. An AMAZING little piece of knife making, the knife has been put through a few serious use trials and has come out of it perfect. Even a knife sharpening with use it has held it's edges and cut perfectly with out rolling or slicing as a cutlass would. My usual knife goes through at least one sharpening a week and this has only needed one so far. Not sure how long it will last, only time will tell. But this knife is absolutely a buy. Even better then a SOL I will most definitely be getting a back up to this. I do a lot of different cutting and batoning with my knives and this does it well. The lock up is very solid, no wobble and opens and closes as it should. It has an amazing action and feel to it.

Fantastic! Excellent fit and finish.
Review by Keepshooting Customer
I am very impressed with this knife. Fit and finish is excellent, all machining is smooth and clean, the knife feels solid and is very well balanced. This is not an aggressive folder but the Veff fit is really impressive. It came out of the box shaving sharp. Overall, it is everything I was hoping for and I would definitely recommend this knife to anyone.

You get what you pay for. It was under $30 and I got what I expected
Review by Keepshooting Customer
I really like it but not so sure I'd pay $70 for it again, so $20 would have been fine. My biggest issue is the double safety and lock release; but, I was warned. I think it is pretty secure once it's locked open and that is the point of the second lock and safety; you're not going to drop this. It will get you if you aren't careful though, as will all knives. The steel is just adequate, so it will dull faster than you would like; but, they are working on this, they are going to be introducing 2 steels; one for the current Rat 1 and another (with higher Vanadium) for the Rat 2.

Amazing knife for the money
Review by Keepshooting Customer
I've used this knife for over a year now. I work in a butcher shop and have put this knife through hell. Cuts, splits everything. Stays sharp and the action is smooth and consistent. I love this knife.

Reliable but not shave sharp
Review by Keepshooting Customer
Very reliable EDC with very lightweight profile, feels good in the hand. Not shave sharp out of the box but can sharpened. The clip could be mounted on either side. Overall a good deal. Update 12/23/2019 : I really like this knife but I did have a defected knife. One side would fold when I push it with my fingernail. However, I found out that if you bend the closed locking lug it doesn't close. I did send it back to Amazon to be returned to seller (a knife dealer). The seller gave me the chance to get another knife. I decided to go with a Benchmade I still own this knife but I only take it camping/backpacking and it has held up well so far. Still the same knife I got from Amazon but the other 1/2 of the one I had returned. (seller chose the other half). I would buy another Rat 1 if I lost or broke this one. It is a nice well made knife that you can carry and use daily without concern.

Review by Keepshooting Customer
The product I got came from Columbia Knife which does have a reputation for a long period for quality made products at an affordable cost, but don't get me wrong I know Ontario products as well from the fact that they used to be produced in one of my home towns and some family members worked for one or two of the plants over there so when my great grand father bought a brand new hunting and skinning tool knife back in 1956 and then my uncle upgraded his from a k-bar I know that knife came from Ontairo, from them to someone from Ontario then down to my uncle. But this particular knife is in fact of decent size for a 3 in hand 4 foot open everyday field knife and I don't know how to give more credit for the blade, it does seem to be the original product not any clone from any copy and with what ever it says being for it's purpose which this seems very versatile to and I will take the opinions that some say and will be checking the sharpeness and may put some parking as some would say of other model and I will check for any dents or dings as they also say and I have been working and I still continue my training in maintaince and there isn't a shop that doesn't look for those dings and what some call manufacturing defects. It's all on the customer and yes as others say the auto shut feature and they seem to go away or forget it as time passes which is my understanding and it can open with ease one handed and a two finger closing mechanism that I haven't yet had the chance to do as that's my backup method and is easy if done so or from your hip, you can close with ease with that knife in a sheath on your belt or as I prefer to carry it and this of all things this can take more stress then some knives of course because it is one solid piece of metal and the handle well ofcourse has the smooth portion of the handle on top with serrations at the bottom on both top portion which helps for making the blade more aggressive and if this wasn't there then there is no need to be doing such and you can easily snap the knife if you get careless or even in haste with no experience

Review by Keepshooting Customer
I have had many a bargain pocket knife in my day and I have to say that this is one fine blade for a $20 knife, the steel is a little harder then say an upsatace that costs half the price and it's more ergonomic as well.

Very good knife for my use
Review by Keepshooting Customer
Just got it today. The sheath is excellent. Opening the knife from the closed and secure lock position is solid.
