Cons: None
Just a high quality knife for low price.
I really enjoy this knife! Comes with a great edge ready to use out of the box. I have been using it as my EDC for about two months now and it has handled everything I have thrown at it. Now I am looking to get the pink one for my girlfriend.

Great EDC knife...
I carry this knife constantly and use it often. It is primarily a utility knife, but would serve as a tactical knife without too much trouble. I bought this in 2010, The buzz at the time was that the handles were too slick, that the blade was too thin, the paint would come off too easily on the blade and that AUS-8 steel wasn't all that great. I can tell you no on all accounts. Ergonomics are very good. The blade came sharp and because of the thin blade profile and the steel, it is easy to sharpen in the field . It holds its edge well too. The lock is strong and tight. I do have some slight side to side blade wobble. But after thousands of kinetic openings, I will forgive it. The lockup has never failed me. The paint has some dings in it, but is holding up quite well. The blade geometry is about perfect for a knife for all seasons. Mr. Randall knew what he was doing... I plan on getting another one in the satin finish. For the price, and all around utility, you really can't beat it. The only downside to this knife is that some people find it too large and heavy. I am not one of those people. But if you are, you might want to check out the RAT-1 Model II. I will, and plan on posting a review ASAP.
