    I recently discovered the classic Rat 1 and Rat 2 is being made with the D2 steel on a regular bases now. It use to be special runs usually exclusive to knifeworks(a Louisiana company that’s great), and BladeHQ. I purchased a Rat 2 recently to try out and it’s quite impressive. The action is super smooth and will flick out easily using the thumb stud and has very solid lock up that’s not late. The centering was pretty good as well. Ontario also started marking the blades with Randall adventure vs the Ontario markings they had been using. They also come in a lot of different color combos. Figured I’d let anyone know who is looking for a great solid knife for around or under $40.

    Here are a few pics(I took the pocket clip off because I just slip it in my pocket)

    I went ahead and got its big brother. It’s equally as nice.

    If you HAD to pick one, would you grab the 1 or 2? I'm on the fence about getting the 2.

    The 1 is a big knife. It will be a knife for on duty use but not something I’d carry every day. The 2 is perfect for EDC just slipping it in the pocket. The 2 is a tad bigger than a delica 4 or mini griptillian.
