great for edc
I already owned a rat 1 and really liked the knife but I found that if was just a little too big to carry most days. The rat 2 is a perfect for light duty edc (every day carry). One of my favorite edc knives is the spyderco delica, but this knife gives the delica a run for its money when you consider the price difference. Sure the blade material is of a lesser quality but is still a great steel. It comes wicked sharp as you would expect from Ontario. The 4 way pocket clip is near perfect and its a light knife, you'll forget you have it. The only thing I can criticize is that it has a little bit of a late lockup. It locks up tight and strong but the lock bar is over halfway across the locking ramp (blade tang). It's not just my knife that does this. Every model has this same characteristic. That being said, its a minor thing and doesn't affect functionality. Amazing knife for the money. Buy one.

Cons: Pocket Clip, Weight
Very good, a little small
Nice blade (came razor sharp). Smooth, lightning fast opening one oiled. Strong pocket clip, but is too low on the knife (the knife protrudes too much from the pocket when clipped) A little too small for my hands, makes using the balde for heavy tasks and flick opening a little akward but not very much. Conclusion: Good EDC blade, would recommend.
