Reliable light weight budget EDC
Review by Keepshooting Customer
Pros: Good EDC if you're going to be on foot a lot all day. The pocket clip is strong, and it won't come out if I don't pull it, which is something I always look for. Very light, sturdy and well built, good blade shape for daily tasks, came fairly sharp out of the box, easy to clean. The small size and easy weight make it comfortable to wear all day and good for reaching in the front pocket. Very reliable. If you're planning on breaking it out often this is the right size for you to have ready to go. Cons: The only con is really aesthetic. It's plain and looks plain, but if you're looking for an EDC to keep around that's not flashy, you'll be ok with that because the build quality will be worth it. But it's worth mentioning because it's not something you'll think of buying a knife for, so if that's your primary reason for buying it, I wouldn't go for this one. If you can see yourself carrying this every day I think it's worth it. Conclusion: This is a lightweight EDC with great build quality and practical size.

Well made budget knife. Solid blade.
Review by Keepshooting Customer
It’s an OKC Rat model 2. This is a very basic no frills knife. What you see is what you get. You can find them for around $20 or less. That’s a very good price for a good steel blade. The edge on mine is nice and sharp. It has an overall nice look and feels well made. No plastic, cheap stamped parts, etc.. The steel it’s made from isn’t the most amazing or high quality steel, but it’s good and has great reputation for being strong and corrosion resistant. The action of the opening is nice and smooth. All in all it’s a good knife for the money. I have several, and would buy more.

The model I bought (2), came with A very tight and smooth opening, no rattle or loose
Review by Keepshooting Customer
Great EDC everyday knife for me! Came sharp and shaving! The blade is thin but holds a good edge and can be sharpened a bit more. The material the blade steel was made of is probably as close to surgical steel you can get for a knife, when it needs to be sharpened it can really be made razor sharp and stays that way. This model 2 knife can be had for as little as $20. I bought 2, 2 for me, they are almost indestructible, sharp and safe in the hands of a kid. The blade was thinner than a razor, and would be a danger to your own hands! The finish is black, it does scratch, with care, I take a dry, 220 or more grit whetstone to mine to make it more comfortable in the hand. Great for slicing paper and light use, such as paring a piece of fruit. The screws for the hilt and scales can be tightened or loosened to customize the grip, which is already perfect. It's as good a light, folding pocket knife you can buy. For $20 it's an unbeatable EDC and uses are limited by your imagination. But I'm pretty good at finding things to use a knife for, including scraping brake drums and a broken truck diff mount. This is a good "tactical" pocket knife as far as that goes. They came razor sharp and stayed that way for months. The serrations are easy to keep sharpened and work well. As for why it's not getting 5 stars? Well mine did come with what appeared to be the makings of rust. Not enough to be an issue, a bit on the handle near the tip of the blade and the but of the knife that's black, the rest was under the knife handle. The blade came super smooth and easy to sharpen, I can't say I've had any problems. But then I'm the kind of knife nut who would use the spine of a knife as a thumbpick, play guitar

Great little EDC pocket knife
Review by Keepshooting Customer
I purchased this to replace my now-broken old EDC pocket knife, an unidentified blade with 2" as a closed length, as that one was indispensable for years and I am sad to see it go, and had been eyeing the RAT II for awhile now. As far as comparing it to my old one, while I am still getting used to the slightly longer length, the grip has an excellent "girth" and while smaller than my last, my old knife was bigger, so I can still wrap my thumb around the handle just fine. Blade sharpness? Absolutely fine. The last pocket knife I bought from Amazon's mass of suppliers, and it arrived so far less than sharp as compared to what I would've expected for a production model - the 12 HRC would probably be an accurate assessment, had I been able to measure. However, as a man with zero knowledge of the metalworking and polishing trades, I'm happy with a decent but very basic edge and it didn't take much time at all to recondition it to a good 8 or 9 - that would probably take an amateur an hour or two and cost an expert more like a day. It's sharp. I just have some unrealistic expectations about how a new, $10 pocket knife can possibly be as sharp as my $2 pocket razor is out of the box. And the flipper? Works great. Smooth. And this one even locks - it doesn't have an ambi and auto, or it would be 5 stars hands down. However, this is one of the strong suits for this pocket knife, that it locks and unlocks easily, and I appreciate the mechanism a great deal. All around? Very happy. Worth every penny.

Fantastic EDC
Review by Keepshooting Customer
Absolutely love this knife, as I have my two other edc's in this series. The clip point style has the great utility for daily use while also having that aggressive blade shape to take care of heavy duty work if need be. I do think this model, if anything I think this model should be about $5 cheaper than the model 1. Overall it's an excellent purchase, as long as you understand what it is, as well as what it isn't, it can't be the blade on a bench hook or other applications where sturdiness is an over riding quality, this knife isn't that it's an EDC for people who are mindful of their budget and don't want to drop $100 on their EDC, that's it. Otherwise it's a great piece of quality that will get better over time, it's had better and better.

It came sharp
Review by Keepshooting Customer
So for the people who say this knife comes dull I’m guessing they don’t know how to sharpen knives. If you do then I don’t see why you would give this knife such a low rating. I love this knife. I don’t use it everyday. Just when I need it. But if you’re buying this knife you should know how to take care of a knife.

Ontario Model 2 Small frame - Light, sharp, well made
Review by Keepshooting Customer
This is a nice knife, great light, small, well made. Solid frame and the pivot screw doesn't loosen up like the cheap zombie knives out there. Well worth it. I did put some thumb tacks at various locations to prevent the pocket clip from sliding down to the bottom of the handle.
