Fantastic knife for the price, feels great in the hand
Review by Shareeta Y.
Verified Buyer
I purchased this knife to replace a Gerber Evo that I misplaced. This knife is slightly larger and slightly heavier. I particularly like that the knife is fully compatible for right or left carry and use with dual thumbs studs and the belt clip can be placed in tip up or down on either side. I was surprised at how well the knife fits in the hand. It is a very comfortable grip including the grind on the back of the blade for your thumb. The lock is very stable and secures the blade well. There is no wiggle in the blade. The only potential disadvantage is the weight at 5.0 ounces.
Big Rat 1 Vs Smaller Rat 2
Review by Creed I.
Verified Buyer
I previously purchased an Ontario Rat 2. When the Rat 1 had a price drop, I picked it up. While I rated the Rat 2 a 4.9, I am enjoying the Rat 1 more. I rate the Rat 1 a 5-star approval! The Rat 1 is a bit larger, but this has become my EDC. The action in both is smooth, but the Rat 1 is frictionless! Both lock securely in the open and detent operation. I highly recommend either, but the Rat1 holds a reserved spot in my pocket!

This is a good purchase for the price. Lightweight and easy to handle. Obviously isn’t the best, but it’s similar in quality to knives that go for between $40-$60. Would purchase again.
Great Knife excellent value
Review by Osvaldo T.

I have both the Rat 1 and Rat 2. The Rat 1 is a big knife for a folder. Both knives far exceed expectations in quality. They are a rare value in todays market. Easy purchase, if you’re on the fence just buy it!
Nice knife for an unmatched price
Review by Laketia Q.
Verified Buyer
This is my first pocket knife. I chose this on the advice of forums and I'm very glad I did. The handle feels good in my hand. Even without any opening aid mechanism, the opening is smooth and easy. Your hand is in the way as it closes so you'll have to be aware of that which is my only complaint. The factory edge is pretty good; at every point it moves through paper with ease. The blade also thins down towards the tip so it has pretty nice geometry as well.

Great knife for the money
Review by Michelene F.

This knife is a classic. Most avid knife collectors are familiar with the RAT1. It has a great feel in your hand, and well placed thumb screws. This model is stainless steel. It’sa god durable knife that’s easy to sharpen. There’s a D2 steel model available too. If your looking for an all around good knife for around $25, this can’t be beat! The RAT1 in D2 steel model is around $35. Either one of these models is a great knife!
