The ultra durable, heavy duty Rat Model 1 has always been hindered in popularity by it’s five once carry weight and large tactical looking 3.6″ blade. For those who have long awaited a more carryable knife from Ontario with the same excellent design as the Model 1, you’ll thoroughly enjoy it’s new smaller brother – the Rat Model 2. This 7″ overall EDC folder comes in at only 2.7 ounces while boasting a 3″ AUS-8 blade available with or without serrations or a black blade coating. It’s a much thinner profile as well making for a much more easily carried knife that you can still depend on for the most serious cutting tasks. Check out the new Ontario Rat 2’s with pink or black FRN handles at www.knifecenter.com.

Spyderco Brad Southard Flipper
Spyderco Knives creates a great new knife that works as an every day carry for everybody as well as a special tool for people who need a great knife in their every day work. This knife has a lot of “bells and whistles.” It’s lightweight, has a slim profile, opens easily and locks solidly. This is a first for Spyderco. It probably won’t be the last flipper opening knife that Spyderco Knives offers. The Southard designed blade is a long belly – that’s it and this makes for a really useful tool. The top of the blade has jimping near the handle which is great for control and then another ramp further out for when you are choked up on the knife for a more controlled and precise cutting. This pocketknife has a framelock system with a titanium side to the handle. A piece of that titanium alloy actually flexes over to lock the blade in the open position. The pocket clip sits on that side and is polished steel. The Southard flipper from Spyderco is a medium sized folding knife and you can see them at www.knifecenter.com.
