Great EDCc
I use this blade a lot for EDC and it is one of my favorite knifes.. I use this way more than any of my "fancy" knifes. I would like to see a G-10 version tho...

Best bang for... buck I have found so far. This knife is a great all round general E.D.C. that uses a very good steel for general chores. At first I was quite reluctant to purchase this knife because every Ontario I have purchases seemed to require some work on my end. So imagine my surprise when I got this knife. I have been carrying the RAT for about 2 weeks straight now and during that time I have used it to pry open paint cans, bend nails, carve wood, and cut tin. Of course the knife got dull, but the beauty of AUS-8 is that it is easily sharpened. I have not had any problems with the function of the knife at all. It stills opens smooth, lock up is tight, and has developed no vertical blade play. The only problem is that the blade coating is not that great and wears ridiculously fast. Which is not such a big deal because all the knives I own get a good workout and are not treated delicately. My conclusion is to buy this knife, period.
