Ontario RAT-7 D2




This is an extremely robust knife with a nice roomy sheet that makes it possible to carry the knife in many different ways. This knife is designed by Jeff Randall and Randall’s Adventure and Training (RAT) in cooperation with Ontario Knife Company. Today Ontario offer a similar knife in the RAT-7 SKU 8604, and the company ESEE Knives offer my knife's more distant relatives in the knife line ESEE . I've been carrying this piece for long periods in rough conditions often under water and surprisingly the carbon steel has been very corrosion resistant. This knife followed me for instance during my adventure at Haigler Creek. The canvas micarta handle provides a secure grip even when wet and the blade coating doesn't give off any unwanted reflections. This is one of my favorite knives in it's size category.
