Abner Fitzwillies Noyes; "Ontario knives are made in the USA and the Rat knives are a no-nonsense knife. Built to RAT standards (Randall Adventure Training) these knives can take abuse because of the 1095 steel and full tang. The Rat 5 is one of the top seller for the survivalists and deserves that ranking. The Micarta handle is not for people with small hands This is a knife designed for long term usage and there are plenty aftermarket sheaths available if you want leather or Kydex."
