$5 FLAT RATE SHIPPING on OKC RAT 1A Assisted Opening Knife with Satin Blade and OD Green Handle, Satin Finish, 8870OD

The most popular Ontario Folding Knife, the RAT 1 has gotten a big upgrade - Assisted Opening and an OD Green G10 handle! A modified version of the RAT I folder, this model is equipped with Ontario's patent-pending Tactical Assisted Opening (T.A.O) designed by Joe Pardue. Otherwise, the Ontario RAT 1A Assisted Opener Folder knife has the same configuration of the RAT 1 folder featuring a .115" thick, 3-12" AUS-8 Stainless Steel blade ground to a full flat taper with a plain edge and satin finish. The OD Green G10 handle is textured for an even more secure grip. The Ontario RAT 1A Assisted Opener Folder knife measures 5" closed. The Ontario RAT 1A Assisted Opener Folder knife deploys super fast with the Tactical Assisted Opening and is 8.5" in overall length. The Liner lock offers a secure open position on the RAT IA Assisted Opening folder. Rockwell Hardness on the Ontario RAT 1A Assisted Opener Folder knife is 55-56 HRC. The Ontario RAT 1A Assisted Opener Folder knife comes with a removable pocket clip installed which allows for tip-up or tip-down, left-handed or right-handed carry.

Editor's Review of Ontario RAT Folder Knife: I remember when Ontario Knife and Jeff Randall collaborated to produce these RAT Folders years and years ago. Honestly, it's the folding knife I carry in my pocket every single day. You couldn't ask for a more practical folding pocket knife. The RAT folder has a slim design that's not bulky in your pocket, it deploys quickly with a thumbstud and quick flick of the wrist. I use my RAT folder nearly every day for regular work tasks like opening boxes, cutting, etc., and I only sharpen it every few months at most. The liner lock toggles easily (but not too easily) for quick closing, but in all the years I've carried it, it has never failed. The RAT II Folder is a bit smaller and more ideal for smaller hands - but all in all, any of the RAT Folder Knives are, in my opinion, an excellent choice for an everyday carry pocket knife.

    RAT 1A

    Posted by JOSEPH MARCHEGGIANI on Sep 28th 2020

    Kind of disappointed with the knife. Was expecting to replace my everyday carry, Kershaw Speedsafe, with it but not going to happen. RAT 1A is heavy, bulky, and difficult to open. Made in Taiwan it is gun show/flea market quality. I will remain boxed up and tossed in the bag with a collection of others that are not up to speed.

    compared to my everyday carry Kershaw Speedsafe, made in USA, this Rat 1A is a heavy bulky difficult to open knife. Rat 1 is made in Taiwan and in my opinion flea market quality. It will remain boxed up and tossed into a bag full of knives I been collecting since the 60s. I gave the Rat1A a shot because I love my Ontario M9.
