Randall designed Ontario assisted openers

Randall designed Ontario assisted openers

Lightning fast. That’s the best way to describe these Randall designed Ontario assisted openers. Just instantaneous opening. Touch that thumb stud and the deed is done- open. The design of this folding pocket knife is well established with the non assisted models, as a great every day carry by thousands of users. Designed by Jeff Randall of ESEE knives and manufactured in Taiwan, American knife fans have voted the non- assisted models as must-have tools by buying them throughout the last 5 years they have been available. We are certain these assisted models will be at least as desirable. There is also a safety on the handle that prevents the accidental opening. Here are some more goodies about these folders. They have a flat ground blade of good quality stainless steel, AUS8. Double thumb studs trigger this lightning fast opening. The G10 handles are great and offer a good grip. Handles are lined for strength. The liner lock is solid and access to it is easy. There is some jimping on the thumb ramp on top of the blade. There are extra holes to reposition the pocket clip so you have your choice of 4 positions. The pivot adjuster is an allen wrench fitting. This is a great knife destined to be a long term standard and you should absolutely check them out at www.knifecenter.com.

Ontario Knife CompanyOntario Knife Company is proud to introduce one of their all-time best selling folding knives, now reissued as assisted openers with their proprietary Tactical Assisted Opening (T.A.O.) technology and G10 handles.

The RAT-1 is one of those knives every knife collector should have in their collection, at least at one point.
