Fantastic value
I own a fair amount of knives. This knife is fantastic. I love it when quality exceeds price, when you see features of higher-priced gear in a budget-minded package. This folder completely nails it. I purchased a model 1 and a model 2. While the smaller model 2 rides much smaller in the pocket, the model 1 is much easier to carry than, say, a CRKT M16-12ZE (another favorite of mine), due to its thin profile. Like to carry your knife multiple ways? This guy's got four options for clipping in, plus ambidextrous thumb studs. And the lock up on it is simply perfect. You'll find yourself opening and closing it over and over again, wiggling the blade to find flaws. You won't find a single flaw. It's smooth to open, and it wont move once locked. It locks up perfectly. The metal may not be the greatest in the world, but for an EDC, this knife is bang on. I'll be buying its estranged cousin, the ESEE Zancudo, to evaluate that against the RAT #1. It appears to be the only competitor in this price range. I strongly recommend this knife. It's a brilliant value and a great EDC knife.

Magnificent Folder
I own two Ontario folders, this Model 1 and an XM 2. Like others have said, it is hard to believe that Ontario could sell the Model 1 for $36. It is a simple liner lock but I seem to see the curved liner notch on the blade, This ensures greater strength and longevity. A feature found on the more custom blades. I am more than happy with this folder and quite pleased.
