The Ontario RAT Model 1 is a beater knife that's universally acclaimed for its performance by pretty much everyone who uses it. Those who need a reliable budget folder to get the job done are always pointed to the RAT 1.
How did this simple folder garner such a powerful reputation?
It all starts with the 3.6-inch satin finished blade. The classic drop point blade profile won't blow long-time knife users away, but it provides a versatility and functionality that's essential in a good EDC.
Ontario Knife Company gets the most out of the AUS-8 stainless steel used for the blade. AUS-8 is tough, holds an edge like nobody's business, and resists corrosion.
This model is a basic manual opening knife with ambidextrous thumb studs for easy one-handed opening. It stays open with a liner lock.
The handle of the RAT 1 doesn't look like much, but it's thoughtfully designed. The black nylon scales are durable with enough texture to offer a solid grip in different weather conditions. Contours along the grip allow you to hold it comfortably in various positions.
Finally, a four-position pocket clip bearing the Ontario "O" lets you carry the knife exactly the way you want.
