The Ontario RAT 6 knife is the new addition to the RAT Fixed Blades Series featuring a 5-1/2" S35VN blade and a micarta handle. The RAT Fixed Blades have proven to be some of the most field ready knives you can add to your collection, and the Ontario RAT 6 is no exception. Measuring in at 5.5” in blade length with a deep finger coil, RAT standard micarta handle scales, full S35VN steel tang construction, this knife has the capabilities of a large chopper and detail knife in one due to its vast blade length sweeping into a piercing tip.

Of all the knives I've collected as an adult, this knife has by far the worst overall finish. The flat blade grind is uneven and has a visible hump on one side two thirds from the hilt. The spine has extremely coarse grind marks lengthwise, and is carelessly rounded in places. The bottom of the tang looks torch cut, and isn't ground at all. The edge is irregular and not sharp enough to cut paper. This knife may be made from premium steel, but it looks as bad as the cheapest Pakistani flea market knife. The handle scales are fine, though definitely no-frills. The sheath is a universal type, and has no retention except for the strap. It is a $5 flea market sheath. I will profile and sharpen this knife properly, then throw it in the trunk of my car and forget about it. Boo!
