Cons: Handle Feel, None
Great Affordable EDC Knife
Had my RAT 2 for about 2 months now and it's still going strong. The AUS-8 blade came hair shaving sharp. I use it for basic tasks (opening packages, cutting rope and wood carving) and it keeps it's edge pretty well. It was also very easy to get it back to a hair shaving edge when sharpening. The RAT 2 has a solid lock up and it deploys fast. It's the perfect size and weight for an EDC blade. However I did notice that the coating is starting to flake off and that the handle is a bit slippery. Overall it's a great knife and I would recommend it.

Good bang for the buck with the RAT series
Being a sucker for good knives in the $30 to $50 range I've found the Ontario RATs and Utilitacs to give you great value for the dollar. I have numerous Rats in the RAT1, RAT2, and RAT3 configuration and found them to be some of my favorites. The RAT 1 & 2 folders in particular are two of the best model EDC and light work camping and utility knives you can buy. I recently added this RAT 2 in Coyote Brown scales w/Black Blade to my collection and found it to be extremely sharp right out of the box while deploying fast and smooth as butter. While I do have some spring assisted knives, I'm not a big fan of them and you don't really have a need for the spring assisted models in the RAT series whatsoever.
