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.
The new Strike Fighter knives from Ontario are well designed, stout back-up tools meant for any military or law enforcement personnel. The handle shape and texturing are borrowed from the successful XM-1 Military folders and made from removable black Micarta slabs. Each knife comes with an excellent plastic molded friction fit sheath that secures the knife tightly without rattling and has an attached Tek-Lok from the factory. There are two sizes of the fixed Strike Fighters available – the SG-3 with a three inch blade and the SG-2 with a stubby two inch blade. It beats me why anyone would need such a little fixed blade, when the SG-3 model can do everything it’s smaller brother can plus much more. Overall, these are very comfortable and durable new American made designs that will not fail you when you need them. Check them out at www.knifecenter.com.
