ONRAT31095BL: RAT-3 Survival Knife, Plain Edge, Black Sheath
Ontario Knife Company
This collaboration between RAT and Ontario is a 3-3/4" fully concealable sheath knife called the RAT-3. It was designed for law enforcement, military and outdoorsmen who require compact cutting power.

The RAT-3 features a molded Blade-Tech sheath. The sheath easily integrates with a Blade-Tech drop holster or can be adapted in the field to fit other rigs commonly used within the military and law enforcement communities. The sheath comes standard with two types of retention devices: a TekLok and a Boot Clip and can be carried in left or right-hand mode. The sheath can also be stripped of retention devices and carried as a neck knife.

The RAT-3 also follows the other RAT designs using Micarta slabbed ergonomic handles and full flat grind for excellent slicing and cutting efficiency.

Pros: Blade Material, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
i have beat the crap out of this knife and it just keeps on working, dug a shallow burn pit with it, sharpened it right up on a ceramic stone. then skinned three wild hogs with it, after some joint busting it had to be resharpened but that's the beauty of 1095 carbon steel, it will dull fast but it is easy to sharpen, i keep a ceramic stone or sharpening steel with me at all times for this kind of blades. a metal clip on the sheath would be better in the long run and powder coating on the blades, I'm not a fan of, it's carbon, i know it's going to rust and discolor but i buy them for ease of sharpening.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material
4 yrs of abuse. Faired better than most would.
Purchased this after it received a glowing review from my units resident knife nut. Size was just right for my kit. Just about right to fit between behind a pouch. Great feel and handling. Survived 4 years of use, and still carry it. Blade held sharpness and resisted chipping. Easily the best and most important feature. If you hammer on this at all, the bolts will shatter in the handle. Be prepared to replace the bolts, or replace the handles with parachute cord. The bolt holes on the riggers belt attachment do not match the sheath, though the belt clip does match. Sheath eventually broke around the bolts (plastic pulled apart) To sum it up -The blade handled everything I threw at it. -Everything else broke. Bolts fairly quickly, sheath after 3 yr. .
