Elmer Fitzwillie notes; "The Ontario Rat 7 is an excellent knife constructed of 1095 steel approximately 3/16" thick. The handle is somewhat large for small hands, but the Micarta gives a great grip. The nylon sheath allows for additional storage of a few survival items or sharpening stone and it's 6.6" blade can be used for chopping. A good survival knife, but can be used as a camp, hunting and defensive knife as well."
