Ideal Style
The large folding knife is the ideal style for eviscerating (gutting) deer. Here in New Jersey we kill a lot of deer and the RAT has proven itself on the hunt. When we gut deer we like to remove the sternum. This requires cutting through the rib joints on each side. The knife must be sharp, strong and large enough for the task, but easy to carry. The RAT meets these requirements. It locks up solid (no blade play) and was sharp out of the box. After use the blade only required a touch-up on the diamond sharpener The reason for the 4 rating is the blade steel. AUS-8A is a good knife steel, but not great like ATS 34 or S35V so it requires touch-up more often.

Amazing Knife
While it's not as slim as some other folders on the market, this knife is now my EDC. The handle fits my hand perfectly, the jimping on the blade is perfect and the edge is flawless. Out of the box sharpness is amazing. Shape of the blade is perfect. The back edge of the knife is planed perfectly for using with a firestarter. I'm selling some of my high end knives. Just don't need them now.
