Ontario Knife Company is proud to introduce one of their all-time best selling folding knives, now reissued as assisted openers with their proprietary Tactical Assisted Opening (T.A.O.) technology and G10 handles. This knife has been a long time in the making since the original model was introduced in 2007. The RAT-1 is one of those knives every knife collector should have in their collection, at least at one point. The production quality for the money is absolutely second to none and these knives are built extremely solidly so you can use them for even the toughest tasks. Now, after almost seven years, Ontario has engineered this folding knife for those who prefer an assisted opening blade. They've also improved upon the design by using real G10 for the handles instead of FRN for a better grip under extreme conditions and added a locking mechanism for safety.
Possibly the best in its price range Date posted: Jan 02, 2020
I honestly didn’t expect this much knife for the price. AUS 8 blade steel is far from my first choice, but it isn’t the worst possible steel they could of used, and it’s probably the only reason they can sell it at this price. I mean this knife is built very well. Definitely Paramilitary 2-ish, not quite that good but pretty darn good. After a few practice tries with the assisted opener, it’ll start to loosen up, and man it hits pretty hard. Quite snappy indeed. And mine came with the blade centred perfectly which really surprised me, did not expect that. Very solid knife. If I had to come up with a con the only one I have is the black blade coating, absolute garbage. Started coming off after the first swipe through a piece of cardboard. I really don’t care about that though, I bought it to use and I’m sure it’ll look much worse when I’m done with it. This one is a user, not a safe queen lol
