Pros: Overall Quality, Weight, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Pocket Clip, None
The Knife:I have a Rat 1 that I thought couldn't be beat for its size, durability, and finish in this price range. Once I saw Ontario offered another folder in the same price range I had to give it a try, and it didn't disappoint. This thing is tough! I have used it recently when hanging deer stands. After cutting old ratchet staps and undesirable 1" branches from the tree, using knife as a pry bar and makeshift screwdriver, as well as being dropped to the ground from 20' up, it still shows no sign of wear or damage. It's got the right heft, useable utility size for pocket carry, solid lockup, and came shaving sharp. Some negatives are it is very wide when clipped in front pocket, so sometimes it's tough to get my hand in there to grab keys and the thumb studs grab pants when picking up or pulling knife. Overall a great knife for a great price. Mine even came with "Collectors First Production Run" on the side of the blade. Not sure what that means but gets oohs & ahhs when I lend it out.Knifecenter:This was my first purchase with knifecenter. I stumbled upon knifecenter and found an easy site to browse through, great selection and great description of their products, all for a competitive price. Icing on the cake is the upfront and flat rate shipping. My order came fast (2-3 days) and was packaged satisfactory. I'm very happy with my order, and if knifecenter can keep up the quality products, easy purchase, and fair pricing with no BS, I will be back for more. Thanks!
