I have a RAT II in D2. It gets really sharp and hasn't shown any tendency to corrosion. Holds an edge well. I like it!

I've got one coming to see what all the commotion is about. Although I usually carry my Leatherman Surge, heavy bugger but comes in handy on many occasions.

Totally agree. The D2 is the way to go for the extra $10-12.

Been using the R2 in D2 for several months exclusively as my EDC and have been very happy with it. I'm tempted to get another for a spare.

R2 strikes a good balance between portability and cutability. ive always thought that a longer blade is preferable in every scenario ... except portability. i would carry my spyderco military everywhere if it left room for anything else in my pocket.

I’ve been thinking about this way too much! I like single blade lock blades and the Rat 1 and 2 are great values. I have both and carry them frequently. BUT, I’m a country boy and encounter multiple chores in the course of the day. That points out the value of multiple blades. When in civilization, the mid sized stockman is a great option but when I wander into the Bush, I always lean toward an SAK Farmer

One knife for edc is a blasphemy but the farmer or stockman are great choices if you can only have one. They are economical and practical

Just got my Rat II and damn it! Made in Taiwan guys really? My bad shoulda researched it better. Won’t be buying another. But it appears like a hell of a deal for the coin. Was hoping to get relatives some for gifts but I’m not giving anyone a gift made in Taiwan.

Buck 285 Bantam BLW in Fluorescent Orange Camo. Whether gutting a deer, cutting twine, stripping wire insulation, you name it, it does it all. And it's made in the US.

You get a knife with D2 steel for $40 and you think it would be American made?

They make some world class products products. Semiconductors, chemicals, metallurgy etc.. I had reservations as well, and I will say this is a quality product at a price point that is a heck of a deal. fwiw

This thread should be more clear.

Best EDC Folder

or

Best affordable EDC Folder

Then give a price range of what you consider affordable.

Ease up on Taiwan, I was stationed there for a while and they are good people. Taiwan is a republic like we are.

Oh, and I like my Gerber

Taiwan isn't "commie". You're messing up all around. I bet none of your clothes are made in the US, either.

Geez... another thread gone to hell... I took it for granted that we all knew that Taiwan was a democracy of sorts. Taiwan is not part of mainland China. U.S. government thinks highly enough of them that we are preparing a sale of F-16's and tanks.
But none of that has anything to do with playing with knives or maybe it does.

I try to buy made in the USA stuff, but I don't want to be bent over to do so.

That being said, you thought it was a good knife before you found out right? Some fella in Taiwan probably thought so, when he was making it.


Well, we don't rent pigs, and it's better to say it right up front because a man who does like to rent pigs is — well, he's hard to stop.
